Fall’s kinda flown by and Black Friday is just days away—do you know what you’ll be shopping? I am serious about sales (read about my latest and greatest buys here) and being a successful shopper is just like anything else: Preparation is key. Spend some time checking out items that you might want to snap up and give yourself time to really think about whether you truly want or need it. Big discounts can bring on sample sale it is, a condition where you’re absolutely certain that you must have something solely because it’s such a fantastic steal (never true). Check out the best deals below and get your game plan on. Good luck and safe shopping!
