Black Friday marks the official start of the holiday shopping season. My Black Friday-prep tradition typically involves reading the ads in the Thanksgiving Day paper while the girls watch the dog show.
Want to shop early? Take advantage of sales & Lightning deals during Amazon.com’s Black Friday Week.
I don’t go every year, but if loss-leader sales lure you out, you can often take advantage of other freebies & deals between shopping stops.
