Black Friday sales are still on. I was surprised because in past years, those sales expired by lunchtime on Black Friday. Not this year. I was surprised to find that every place I went were still offering the same prices that I saw in circulars on Thursday. I was even more surprised that the stores are still well stocked. So if you missed it Friday, it's not too late.
Online is fine, but order now. If the Black Friday sales are any indication, there's a good chance that Cyber Monday sales will also run for the rest of the week, but don't push it. That stuff needs to be delivered, and you want to allow for possible delays or exchanges if necessary.
Star Wars stuff is everywhere. I feel like Kylo Wren is stalking me. Star Wars stuff is everywhere in every store. Watches especially, but I also saw coffee mugs, shirts, and even toothbrush sets. Just walk in a store. Any store. You'll see Star Wars.
But beware, because people will still try to rip you off. I got stopped by a guy in the mall wanting to demonstrate a straightening iron. He fixed my hair and offered to sell me the iron on a Black Friday sale for only $99. What a bargan, eh? I said I needed to think about investing that much into myself when my purpose today was to buy for others, and then drove to Target and got one for $19.95 (along with a few other gifts for other people). The point: be aware. I looked online and through sales circulars over the weekend so I knew how much things were, so when this guy tried to sell me a "bargain," I knew for a fact that other places had it much cheaper. People will always try to rip you off, so it's good to always be cautious and never impulse buy - but especially this time of year. That being said, it's ok to get a little something for yourself. Just be reasonable and aware of your limits.
Don't fall for the "there's no point in dieting and/or exercising until the New Year" excuse. I know you're busy (we all are), but diet and exercise help you feel better and more energetic, which is exactly what you need during this hectic season. Plus, they're good habits to form, and it's easier to do it now, before the New Year rush.
So you can still save out there, but do your research, be aware, and get out there now.
That's all today. Take care, and have a great week.
