What I Miss About The Black Friday’s Of The Past

Black Friday's Of The Past


Black Friday is soon approaching, and just like you, I enjoy finding the savings online, but, if I’m being honest, I kind of miss the Black Friday’s of the past and here’s


Thanksgiving Day


Thanksgiving Day was a time for spending with your family and friends, and you didn’t leave your warm, toasty, home to get the deal of a lifetime.

Now, if you ate too much, and want to go as a family to find those savings then have at it, other wise, I try my best to stay home.  LOL



Turkey Day Newspaper


On Turkey day, I would get up in the wee hours of the morning, put my bird in the oven, and head to the gas station to get the massive newspaper, that was full of

colorful ads, and the anticipation of savings.

My mom and I would circle the items that we wanted to buy, plan out a route, and away we would go with that newspaper guiding the way.


Up At The Crack of Dawn


I can remember getting up at 3:00 in the morning, to go stand in line at the store, freezing my butt off, but as soon as those doors opened, it was time to become a team

and get that Black Friday deal!  Whoop! Whoop!


Get That Gift



This was the time you had to dive right in the middle of a swarm of people, and get that gift.

Sure, there were some people who weren’t very nice, but the majority of people were kind, and willing to help others too.


Hiding The Presents


At the end of the shopping day, your mission wasn’t over, you had to bring your gifts into the house and put them in secret spots.

Now, whether my family found these gifts, I will never know, because they always acted surprised on Christmas Day.


The Big Nap


And finally, after all that shopping on Black Friday, I would take a well deserved nap, with a smile on my face, because of all the savings that I got.



Sit And Click


Now, I’m sure that some people reading this think that I’m crazy to miss the Black Friday’s of the past, because today you can buy all those savings online.

In fact, certain websites share weeks in advance, what’s going to be on sale, and you can take advantage of the door-busters savings as you sit and click.

This really is great for those who have to work on the holidays, or can’t physically get around.


Time Well Spent


For as long as I can, I want to spend Black Friday with my mom, and hopefully, my daughter one day.

It doesn’t matter to me how we do it, just as long as we do, because it’s time well spent, which is priceless.

Wedding Jewelry Online Sales!

Spring is almost here, and this is the time to start planning, finalizing, or possibly asking the one you love to “marry me”!  I have noticed lots of sales circulars, wedding shows, and fantastic online prices on all things “wedding”.  But today, I would like to share with you some of the wedding jewelry (wedding sets, bridesmaids gifts, groom, or moms-to-be) that are not only beautiful, but going quickly because their prices are deeply discounted!  I LOVE jewelry, because it’s just one of those things that represents a timeless memory and our personal style.  

Whether your into sterling silver, stainless steel, or classic gold, all of the following websites have you covered.  Let’s be honest,  not all of us can afford to buy a $5000.00 wedding set, but we still want to have the ring of our dreams.  Or maybe you would like to give a jewelry gift to the members of your wedding party, to thank them for being a part of your special day.  So, here are some websites that offer quality jewelry at fantastic prices, and my only regret is that if I didn’t purchase an item in my size right then, it was usually sold out when I went back!   BOO!  So, try to get yours before they are gone!   Happy shopping, and I hope that these links help you find some ways to save on your wedding day!
