Black Friday 2023: Pants Optional

The thrill of Black Friday shopping in-person has faded for many. Getting up at the crack of dawn, waiting in long lines, the pushing, the shoving, the frustration. No thank you. But that doesn’t mean you can’t snag those killer deals – especially in this economy! Online Black Friday shopping not only spares us the insanity of lines and being out at 0-dark-thirty, but gives us even more online options! So, we can shop all day long  – cozy in our fat pants with a turkey baby to rest our phones on.

Find the Black Friday Ads:

BlackFriday.com is my go-to for all things Black Friday.  It has every ad for every major retailer; even some who I didn’t know had Black Friday sales!  Sign up for email alerts to know when your favorite store’s ads drop.

Don’t Forget to Shop Local!

Check out the websites for your favorite local shops and businesses, or visit their social media pages. Many will offer special deals for their loyal customers, and in this difficult year, our small business owners need as much support as we can give them!

And, for the love of all things elastic please do yourself a money-saving favor and use cash back apps like iBotta, Rakuten, Fetch, and others to maximize your savings.  Find a friend with an account because they often get a kickback for referring you and you get a credit for signing up.  Use Chrome extensions and apps like Honey and RetailMeNot to automatically find promo codes and coupons for your favorite brands.

Get those stretchy pants on (or no pants, we don’t judge), put your feet up, and get to snatching up those awesome deals.
