Let’s be real, if you haven’t already started planning your Black Friday shopping, you’re late to the game. I started shopping last week because there were pre-black Friday sales I just couldn’t pass up. Black Friday shopping has been a tradition I started with my mom years ago. We would go through the ads and decide where the best deals were. This was back when deals started at 5am on Friday, not on thanksgiving. Now don’t get me wrong, I’ve gone out a few times on Thursday night, but not until 10pm after all the Thanksgiving festivities were done. Now with the baby I’m planning on doing all my shopping online, because let’s be real, no way would I want to take this little one in all the craziness shopping.

Most places put out their ads the week before (you should have already be skimming these!), and my biggest suggestion is to start price comparing and decide if the deal is really that good to spend on. Sometimes you can wait until Cyber Monday and get a better sale.
I’ve already shopped the early deals from Costco and Kohl’s, but if you’re just starting to look for deals make sure you look through the whole ad, because certain pages can designate specific dates and times of when the items are available and on sale. Some of the ads have doorbusters spread through the whole thing and not just on the first page, so make sure you check out the whole thing!
Now, here are some of my favorites and I’ve linked some great deals I’m keeping my eye on for myself and for gifts for others!
Kohl’s -Black Friday
Notice their deals started at 12:01 am online on the 19th! One thing I really like about Kohl’s is if you are already planning on buying an item they offer Kohl’s cash which you can use on the designated dates. Last time I had Kohl’s cash I spent $3 of my own money and got about 8 new pieces that fit for my work wardrobe, I love that unlike other stores they don't require a specific amount you have to spend to use their "cash".
I could go on and on about the deals but instead I added the different ads I personally browse so you can take a look if you haven't already plus I linked gift ideas below!
