 I know many of you will be gearing up to find the most amazing deals you have all year on the upcoming Black Friday sales. (In fact, you can find all of the current Black Friday ad scans OVER HERE!)  BUT, if you are a hard-core black Friday shopper, you may want to be aware of the items that won’t be hot deals to add to your wish list.

Here they are:

1.  **Smartphones

2.  **Furniture

3.  **Holiday Decorations – always get these after the holidays when they are on clearance!

4.  **Chocolates & Flowers (Their debut is still a few months away in February)

5.  **Newly-Developed, High-End Tech

6.  **Vacation Packages

7.  **Second-Hand Gaming Consoles

8.  **Major appliances – the deals won’t be as good in 2019 as they were in 2018 because of some new tariffs

9.  **Fitness Equipment

10.  **Winter Gear – wait until later in the season when stores what to start adding Spring items to their floors and they discount winter clothing prices.

11.  **Jewelry – Sales get better in December and then again in February.  Although December sales are typically better than Febrauary sales, so you may want to shop for Valentine’s Day in December.  


You can read all of the details why these are no-no’s over here.

As for me and Black Friday – I will be home, cuddled in my jammies, avoiding the crowds like the plague, and searching online for great deals.  The idea of waking up at the crack of dawn, to wait in the cold, for a good deal that I’m used to getting all year round – is NOT my idea of a good time.  😉  Those of you who are with me, come and join my HOT Online Deals Facebook group where I’ll be sharing what I find!

But for those of you who can’t wait – I wish you luck on your deal shopping journey!!!

    • I was wondering when this was going to rear its head again…very interesting points that are made in general. I personally believe this area will be an interesting one to watch in the next few years. I don't think food blogs are going to go aw#.y..I&a39;m curious to see how this all pans out.

    • Hi, I just hopped over to your webpage via StpeolmUubn. Not somthing I might usually browse, but I appreciated your thoughts none the less. Thank you for making some thing worthy of reading through.

    • 2caהי יניב.איזה ריח עולה מהקומפוסטר – ריקבון? אמוניה (? כמו שתן?) כל אחד מהריחות יפנה לפתרון אחר.בכל מקרה, הקומפוסטרים המסתובבים מוערכים יתר על המידה.עדיף ללכת על הכי פשוט – ארבעה משטחי הרמה מחוברים יחדיו.ראה דיון על 21

    • Please excuse my bad English/spelling.a.histograms not historgramsb. and not adc. period after Networkd. introduces not introducues.This is an important subject to me and I hurried.

    • Muslims would eat prohibited meat if nothing else was available ie in wartime, and “neccessity makes prohibited things pe1#rssible&m822i;. I would say they would save the life of a dying pig because there is an injunction in Islam to be reasonable to all things. I would say the trainee police woman was making a personal decision.

    • Wow! Um, I guess I’m both. Maybe more Perciever than Judger, but I have almost a equal number of qualities from both lists. What does this do for my writing? Well, I do start alot of project, but once I start focusing on one mapnscriut I have a hard time putting it down. Even after it’s finished. I usually have to tell myself to stop (and even then, I have to hide the manuscript so I’m not tempted).

    • very few websites that happen to be detailed below, from our point of view are undoubtedly well worth checking our&H8230;#ete is a Great Blog You Might Find Interesting that we Encourage You…

    • The zx6r outhandled and scored fastest lap due to carrying best entry speed into turns.Not that it means anything to the ones that will ride it in the city or go as fast as possible in a straight line but that is the measure of a sport bike :handling.It has a slipper clutch and great brakes.Also the ’08 with a 50 cent piece of wire would put it almost at the top of the class!I personally like the new look and I am an Vtwin rider.The only thing making me nervous would be the “new” forks internals.The gixxer is the one that needs an update.It sucked in the comparo test.

    • GwebesThe 6/1 stat is not something that can be viewed in isolation. Please check the population figures, urbanization rates and, most importantly, education.So when would you believe racial profiling and discrimination in the economy and educational fields can be removed?

    • klakanye dia try nk bia polis rasa bodoh bila dia tanya u knw what inttiidame means? pd hal bila dia ckp melayu pun tak betul jugak. n record benda ni, not a smart move.

    • You can’t condone pinching ideas, if his mate found out after trying to pass the same ads through the same people and they were like “we’ve seen these before pal, from a cheeky young man called Dave Trott, so jog on”, Trott’s mate would be well within his rights to cap his ass.However, you can understand why he did it… get a foot in the door the quick and easy way, he still has to prove himself to keep the job long term… so fuck it, fair play to him.

    • Good job. Looks like you had fun (although, that is THE most awkward kiss I have ever seen!). Is that a unicorn on your metal? Odd or symbolic?

    • Radisson dit :Les ours blancs ne sont – finalement – que des ours gris qui se sont adaptés au refroidissement climatique survenu il y a environ 50 000 ans AC. Où ils vont s’adapter au réchauffement actuel qui a commencé il y a plusieurs milliers d’années ( vers 10000 AC) ou ils ne le feront pas.Plus j’écoute le discours des écocatastrophiste et plus je suis sidéré du paquet de conneries qu’ils peuvent proférerà chaque semaine!!

    • Well Eric, I stopped reading your blog years ago when you started spending so much time on Amazing Race. I thought it was probably just another crap tv show.. I just finished watching AR season 1, from netflix ( I don’t have cable now, did then ) What a great show!!!! Netflix also has season 7, which I put on my list. Season 2 thru 6 don’t seem to be out on dvd. I should of trusted you buddy. Lenny

    • I hate stories like this that tell about vulnerable helpless children dying under the care of their mother. I will withhold judgment until all the facts are in. I don't want to believe that the mother innlotintaley killed her children.
