The 4 things I'm shopping for this Black Friday & Cyber Monday (and the favorite sales I always check)

Happy Black Friday! 

The excitement around this day has really slowed down now that retailers offer their sales all weekend, sometimes even starting the day before Thanksgiving. But I still love to see the sales, and save up a few purchases until Black Friday weekend. This year there are four specific things I'm shopping for. Sharing those below, plus a (short) list of favorite retailers whose sales I always check for.

My 4 Black Friday/Cyber Monday Purchases

1. Growing kid clothes. 

Lucy will be going up a size soon so I bought her a ton of basics plus some cute sweaters and dresses for next January through spring. I've been really tired of Target and Old Navy kid clothes lately but I've been shopping for the kids at lot at H&M. Some faves below. Hanna Andersson is all 40% off as well, been trying to only buy their jammies for the kids cause they're just so much better than any others!

2. A TV

Our TV conveniently started biting the dust the other week. We're actually pretty happy and proud of how long it's lasted (and how long we've held out buying a new, cooler one when the old one worked just fine.) We bought it in 2009. Ha! We've decided not to go for a Frame TV, rather, just something with a narrow frame (they all have that now). We'll still put it above the fireplace but I think it will look a lot better than the current one with its huge shiny black frame around the 46" screen. I want this one; Jason wants the bigger version. Note: Target will price match if the price drops before 12/24, so you can buy now and just check the Cyber Monday deal, rather than hedging your bets in case it drops lower then, or sells out!

3. Books

Target is doing buy 2 get 1 free books through 11/27, and their base prices match Amazon's, so that is a great deal. I bought myself two home decor books while buying a gift book already, and am really tempted by some others. My family does lots of books as gifts so this is a great deal for us to shop! This is also a great sale/time to buy kid Christmas (or any) books or cookbooks.

4. Everyday flatware

We celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary this year and we're still using our dishes, flatware, pots/pans, and a few other things from our wedding registry. Which is so cool, and we love them for the most part, but we've never loved our silverware (the handles are so heavy they always slide off the plate when you stack them) and we've lost a lot of the smaller forks. I decided we could treat ourselves to a new set this year! But it's taken me a while to do the shopping, and now a lot of the options are on sale. I'll have to report back on how this shopping goes cause so far I haven't found the perfect set!

Favorite retailer sales

I'll add to this list as I find them!
