With Thanksgiving quickly approaching, I'm so excited to spend time with my family and have a fun Friendsgiving with my friends, but I'm also super pumped about Black Friday shopping. I've only been a few times before, and I usually don't take advantage of all the great deals as much as I should. I do, however, stock up on as many movies as humanly possible, buying 15 or so DVDs, sometimes more. It's just such a great deal. How could I pass it up?
This year though, Jon and I are going Black Friday together for the first time ever, and we're looking to get a decent camera so I can finally take some decent pictures for this here blog, which is why I'm so thankful that Shopular sent me this awesome Black Friday Survival Kit. It really has everything I could possibly need to make my night as comfortable and successful as possible.
It's always good to go into Black Friday with a plan. If you don't have one, you may find yourself lost in the chaos. One way I like to prepare is by using the Shopular app. It's the most convenient way to shop all of the Black Friday deals.
In the app, you can choose your favorite stores, so you don't have to shuffle through all of the stores you don't care about. The Shopular app has all of the Black Friday ads right there on your fingertips, so it'll easily be your go-to guide when you're shopping. Within each ad, you can also favorite certain pages, so you don't have to look through every page of the app. Instead, you can just look at the pages you're interested in. I'm obsessed with this app and have shared it with my friends and co-workers to help them get their Black Friday shopping done too!
BRING THE ESSENTIALS
The Black Friday Kit came with so many things for me to be comfortable while waiting in line to get inside or waiting in line to make my purchases.
1//QuestBar Protein Bar: We all know that eating turkey makes us sleepy, so when we're in line for the Black Friday deals, we need to stay energized and pumped. People are ruthless, and if you are going in for something specific, you have to enough energy to fight for it! But hopefully it won't come to that. In any case, these Quest bars will help fill up the little bit of room you may have left in your stomach after stuffing yourself with twelve plates and get you ready to shop.
2// Vermints: It's always good to have some tasty mints on hand. Pop one in your mouth while you're on the run or waiting in the check-out line. Plus, they're organic! Use the promo code A07MGX0M1D6B for 25% off!
3// Stress Ball: Black Friday is the most stressful shopping day of the year. Having a stress ball around will help keep you from tearing someone's head off getting too stressed out.
4//Crazy Rumors Lip Balm: Now that the weather is cooler, it's always good to have some lip balm on hand. I tried the Raspberry Sorbet flavor, and it smells so good! You can use the promo code SHOPULAR for 20% off until 12/15/14!
5// Simbihaiti Hair Bracelets: With the crowds, deals, and chaos of Black Friday, your hair isn't something that you should also have to worry about. With these awesome hair bracelets, you can tie your hair back and forget about it. I'm officially in love with these hair ties. They're so cute, and contribute to a good cause. Each hair tie is handmade in Haiti and helps bring clean water and jobs to the country.
6// Foot Petals: One setback of Black Friday is having to be on your feet for several hours at a time. With Foot Petals, you can put them in your shoes, so being on your feet won't be so bad.
ADMIRE YOUR GOODIES AND RELAX
After a successful Black Friday shopping trip, the first thing you'll want to do is get home and relax.
7// Dearfoams: Give your feet a hug by putting on these super comfortable Dearfoams slippers. It's like walking on pillows. They're so comfy!
8//Cosmetic Boulevard Coffee Scrub: Run the bath and pamper your skin with this coffee scrub. Not only will you smell good, but your skin will feel fabulous. You deserve to be pampered after all that hard work you did!
