Friday Favorites :: Black Friday Edition

Houston Moms "Friday Favorites:: A Weekly Glance at Our Favorite Things" #houstonmoms #houstonmomsblog #momsaroundhouston

I am a loyal, bit fanatical, Black Friday shopper.

I can’t help it. The day brings together two of my biggest passions:: scoring a sale and gift-giving.

I never actually go in the store {unless it’s a local, small business, which I ALWAYS want to support}. But for the big players–Target, Amazon, Kohls, etc–I rely on an open internet browser, cozy seat, and peppermint tea to get in the mood.

A lot of stores are doing something a little different this year–offering Black Friday deals for an entire week leading up to the big day. Take advantage of the extra time. Plan ahead and save some precious bucks, friends.
