Life Lessons of a Military Wife (overseas in Europe!): Four Days Til Black Friday

Life Lessons of a Military Wife (overseas in Europe!)

My goal here is to make your life easier, especially those who are in the unique situation of being a military spouse. Yes...I've been around...but in a good way...and hopefully can share those tips, tricks and shortcuts with you too. I've been on this military bus for over 40 years now. My goals in life are to have a well-run home, few money worries, well adjusted children, money socked away and whatever happiness I can scoop out of life.

After life as an Army brat, being in the Army myself and marrying a soldier, I can honestly say I have a bucket full of life lessons I can share to help you make your everyday life easier and enlightening. Don't waste your time making unnecessary mistakes and benefit from others who have come before you on your journey through life.

Four Days Til Black Friday

Are you ready? Are you going to shop the day after Thanksgiving this year...the biggest money-making day for retailers EVER... along with being the busiest shopping day of the year, which translates into big crowds and long lines for you! Wait...keep can still participate in Black Friday without ever leaving the house if this is what's holding you back this year. It's okay to sit in your PJs, eating your Turkey Day leftovers. You can still get great deals. Online stores also "celebrate" on Cyber Monday, so check them out then too! Whether you go out or stay in, here are some tips to get your holiday shopping, over and done with.....and with less cash leaving your pocket in the process.

The absolute BEST site to do your research beforehand and to see the advertised store specials is:

Also be sure to check:

Make sure you also visit the Forums at, as lots of individual deals are discussed there, as well many tips and goodies to be found from the veterans of years' past. There's no need to re-invent the wheel. Read about some of the peoples' strategies so you will get what's on your list, so you don't waste time and most important of all, so you don't get run over and trampled.

There are a few other blogs and sites discussing Black Friday below.

Share Your Black Friday Thoughts, Stories and Strategies

Black Friday and Buying out of Budget

If you absolutely refuse to deal with the crowds but still want a piece of the action, then you can find some great deals online too. The Gottadeal site has an entire area dedicated to online deals. Amazon and some of the other big retailers are also going to have changing Black Friday fare....and if you really like cheap electronic and interesting products, I bet Woot will be throwing out things left and right. Be sure to visit and read their blog on each item up for sale. The place really has a cult following. Read some of the discussion comments in each blog entry for each deal. Not only do they have deals on Black Friday, they have deals on items all throughout the year...only selling one item at a time until it's gone, and then popping up the next item! I got some great gifts, such as Sansa 2 GB MP3 players for about $30 and 80 GB Zunes for just under $90. I guess the kids and their dad are going to be smiling this year:-)) Well, I sure hope so, because that's pretty much all they're going to get! We've decided to tone it down this year...but that's another story all together!

Where do you do your Black Friday shopping? Anything you'd like to share? If you don't shop, tell us what you do instead while everyone else around you goes wacko!

Thanks. I have already been to Gottadeal and have made my list!

I always shop with a friend and we make sure to have plenty of coffee and we bring our own version of our shopping cart because the stores are always out of them. We bring a thing like the old ladies have.

You better be sure to bring the versacart, with you for shopping. You can roll your shopping bags and stuff them in this portable hand cart.
