Black Friday, Cyber Monday and My Sleep Schedule

**updated with etsy deals!**

I was invited to go to the outlet mall at midnight. Yes, stay up all night after Thanksgiving and be at the outlet mall at midnight for them to open so I can beat down 458,385 other people to get a good deal on some baby pajamas. I just don’t have that kind of shopping prowess. Staci and Becky will probably get all their Christmas shopping done and get some VERY good people watching in. But I just couldn’t do it.

Instead I want to sit on the computer and Christmas shop online. I want to sip hot chocolate from my Dolce Gusto (have I told you about this yet?) and have someone deliver the gift to my doorstep. And guess what? I’ve already bought EIGHT Christmas presents online. I know. I’m impressed at myself, too.

Anyway, in case you’re like me and sitting at home on Friday, I thought I’d share some deals that were delivered to my inbox. I’m an affiliate with several companies. I put text ads or banner ads on my blog and if someone (ie. you) clicks through to their site, I get a percentage of that sale. I only pick companies I like or talk about regularly. (Uhm, I wasn’t accepted into the M&M affiliate program. Can you believe that?)

So, get your mouse ready and start clickin’ because these are some good deals:

SIGNING TIME (one of my all-time favorite companies/organizations EVER)

:: :: ::

MOM4LIFE (an amazing mom & baby store owned by the fabulous & inspiring Heather)

  • 10% off Resa Sibling shirts (oh, I wish I had these when Asa was born!)
  • Plus, if you join their facebook page, you can get “deep discounts”!

:: :: ::

NEST FAMILY (a high-quality faith-based entertainment company)

:: :: ::

C28(Favorite Christian clothing company. Yep. For real.)

Free Shipping for You!

:: :: ::

AMAZON (maybe you’ve heard of them?)

  • Les and I are actually both on our laptops now looking through the bookoos of Black Friday deals. He’s trying to get a new bluetooth headset. He climbs roofs for a living and right now he’ll answer his phone while he’s on top of a roof. This cannot be healthy for him. (He’s looking at the Plantronics Discovery 925 which also comes in purple. But he says he’d rather have black. What-EVER.) I am looking at the kids books and movies.

:: :: ::

MOO (I’m not an affiliate, I just love Moo photo products. And they send me good discounts ALL the time!)

  • Free shipping when you spend $40 with coupon code: ASU34G

:: :: ::

ETSY (Not an affiliate here, either. *sniff*)

I just learned from Pamperking Beki that if you search “etsyholidaysale” or “etsyfreeshipping”, then refine the search results to the left you can find ALL SORTS OF DEALS. (I already bought some Christmas presents from Pampering Beki…wonder who they could be for?)

So, what is the best Black Friday deal you snagged?


  1. that’s my kind of shopping!!!

  2. my sister and I took our 4 teens to the mall at midnight to shop and people watch. It was not the most impressive sampling of youth. I was happy when my daughter said she didnt see anyone she knew from school. Its was that scary.
    Im a pretty avid shopper and the sales at the kids clothing stores just weren’t waiting in line for.

  3. I did the midnight shopping at some outlets 3 years ago – SO not worth it. I bought a couple things b/c I would’ve felt foolish to go out so late and not get a thing… So today we (tried to) sleep in – took the boys to my parents for the day/night/day, and ran into the mall to get Josh a bluetooth. Try the Blue Ant Q1 (good price at Radio Shack today – online, too). Josh loved his 1st Blue Ant until he lost it. I’ll do some online shopping, but I’m really almost done. YAY!!!

  4. The deals weren’t earth shattering, but they definitely helped out. And really, for me, it’s all about the experience. Becky and I were just on a roll and kept going from shop to shop…adrenaline kicked in. Now I’m on the down swing…zzzzzz.

  5. I have that Bluetooth in purple. You jealous? 😉

  6. Love all the tips. I clicked on almost everyone. So many choices…thanks for the info! I too am not into the crazy Black Friday shopping.

  7. I, like you, prefer to shop online. No crowds. No lines. No worries. 🙂

    And I can shop in my pajamas at 1am. Can’t beat that!
