I’ve been part of the midnight madness that is Black Friday. I have such fond memories of traffic jams, long check-out lines, and animal-like savagery when you can’t get your cart through the jammed aisles. I have some war stories.
But not this year. This year I have a “Do-Less” plan and that means any Black Friday shopping will happen in the comfort of my own home and probably in my pajamas. So, let’s click-and-sip together, shall we?
Right now I’m looking for anything that will help me with my household tasks and keep my kiddos occupied — anything that will help me keep up with all the demands on my time and energy deserve a look these days. If you’re the same, maybe these devices and deals will help.
1. The ultimate in hands-free help is the Amazon Echo. You just have to say what you want and Alexa will play it, call it, or research it. The other day some of my friends and I were talking about using diffusers. After we left, my girlfriend sent me a list of the best deals on diffusers her Echo had created while we were talking. A little futuristic — yes? Also, super helpful — yes! Save $20 off the normal $99.99 price.
Buy it: $79.99
Deal ends: 11/27 or until supplies last.
2. I love my Kindle Fire. Folks ask me how I read so much with three little girls — it’s because I have an Audible account and listen to books while I do laundry, wash the dishes, mop the floors, and clean the toilets. If there is a task that would be made joyful with a book, I’ve tried it. This Fire Tablet HD10 Tablet utilizes Alexa, making it even more hands-free. Just ask Alexa! The Black Friday price is $50 off the regular price of $149.99 for the 32 GB model.
Buy it: $99.99
Deal ends: 11/27 or when supplies run out.
3. Once a human baby is on the scene, your precious fur-baby begins to take a back seat. This self-feeder not only allows your pet access to his food, it also offers interactive (increasingly challenging) puzzles. Designed by neuroscientists, CleverPet Hub is a great way to keep your smart pup active while you are otherwise engaged. This lightning deal will get you the CleverPet at 20 percent off the regular price of $299.99.
Buy it: $240.10
Deal ends: 11/27
4. Changing the litter box is a chore pregnant mamas aren’t allowed to perform. My hubby knew the task was now on his plate, but he seldom remembered to clean it without my
demanding asking him to do it. And our cat let us know by peeing elsewhere. This self-cleaning PetSafe ScoopFree Self Cleaning Litter Box would have been a lifesaver for us. Buy it at 20 percent off the regular price of $79.99.
Buy it: $63.99
Deal ends: Available 11/27 only
5. My poor husband is looking so ragged these days. He’s growing out his Novem-beard and there are definitely spots that could use a little sprucing. If you find yourself in the same predicament, this Amazon deal on the Thrive Men’s Grooming Kit might be for you or the man in your life. It’s 25 percent off the regular price of $39.95.
Buy it: $31.96
Deal ends: Available 11/25 only
6. We bought a major fixer-upper a few years ago, so this deal on Hitachi Tools — up to 40 percent off on select tools! — totally caught my eye. My hubby might be getting more than a grooming kit under the Christmas tree this year.
Buy it: $7.98-$349
Deal ends: 11/27
7. It’s so nice to sit down to watch favorite holiday movies with the whole family. So here’s a link here to all your favorites at 40 percent off, starting 11/28 and ending 12/5. I can’t imagine wrapping presents without Elf playing in the background.
Buy it: $1.99 and up
Deal ends: Discount runs 11/28 to 12/5
8. Speaking of movies to watch, one of our family favorites is the Harry Potter series. We love the books and the movies and I’m excited for the day I can start sharing that love with my children. Here is a great deal on the entire 8-film Harry Potter Collection for those of you ready to start enjoying it with your kiddos now. There are LOADS of extras too!
Buy it: $25.99-$85.99
Deal ends: This one-day deal runs 11/24 only
9. There are TONS of amazing kid toy deals to be found on Black Friday. One that stood out to me (since I have two kids that are now just old enough to fight about everything) is a special price on two Fire 7 Kids Edition Tablets, $70 off the regular $199.99 price. Let’s just say long car ride management is now managed.
Buy it: $129.99
Deal ends: 11/27
10. This item is not sexy, but it’s necessary and you’ll be thankful for it come April 15. Yes, it’s tax software. Amazon and H&R Block are offering a special deal: If you choose to to purchase H&R Block’s tax software through this deal you can have your tax return loaded onto an Amazon gift card with a 5 percent bonus. So, if you have a $1000 tax return coming to you you’ll get a gift card for $1050, which is a great deal if you do a lot of your shopping on Amazon already.
Buy it: $59.99
Deal ends: This lightning deal is available 11/24 only
However you choose to spend your money this holiday season, remember the most important things in life aren’t things. That said, it’s a bit thrilling to see my dollars stretch the way they do on Black Friday week. I hope you grab what deals you can and have a beautiful holiday season.
