how to find the best black friday dealsBlack Friday is less than a day away!  Get ready to find the best black Friday deals, possibly the best this Christmas season!!  Retailers have been planning on this week all year because this is when the bulk of Christmas shopping will happen this year.  Peak Week starts the Monday before Thanksgiving and goes through the following Monday, referred to as Cyber Monday.  * Black Friday is a term almost used to describe this entire time period for many retailers.* I like to think of getting this task complete (or close)- Christmas shopping- so we can all enjoy Thanksgiving and Christmas together a little more.

Back to Black Friday shopping, get your lists ready!  I do believe you will find some great deals this week if you are ready to make a purchase.  If you have any questions about securely shopping online, read this post to shop smart online this Christmas season.  We want to help you find the best Black Friday deals online and in stores so check Mom’s Priority daily for updates.

Best Black Friday Deals

We will be updating our list of deals daily as we receive them from retailers here on the Black Friday Deals page, accessible from the main page.  You may want to bookmark this page.

Here are a few tips to save money this Christmas season:

  • You need to remember to check prices before you buy.  Even though a retailer claims to be offering a great price on an item, that doesn’t mean it is the BEST price.  One great website resource to check Amazon prices is https://camelcamelcamel.com .  This is a legit site that does behind the scenes work for you.  You can even sign up for price drop alerts if you are shopping Amazon and need to find a particular item.
  • You should review the Black Friday Ads for major retailers below, which are linked below for your convenience.




Department Store Black Friday Ads

Black Friday 2018 is coming November 23!  Retailer giants like Amazon and Walmart have already begun their deals of the day and door busters, with more coming each day.  Here is a list of the bigger department store Black Friday ads we have so far.

Sam’s Club Black Friday Ad

Kohls Black Friday Ad

Macy’s Black Friday Ad

Walmart Black Friday Ad

Amazon Black Friday Ad

Target Black Friday Ad

Best Buy Black Friday Ad

 

More Black Friday Tips

  • Use promo and coupon codes whenever possible.
  • Note retailers that price match, and ask for a price match if you find an identical item at another store.
  • Consider a free trial of Amazon prime just for the holidays for the free shipping benefits. Try Amazon Prime 30-Day Free Trial.
  • Always keep your budget in mind and think about creating a Three Gift Rule to keep the focus off all of the gifts.  See our post about the Three Gift Rule here.

These are just a few of the ways you can find the best black Friday deals this week.  Good luck!!

In our house, we’re excitedly anticipating a fun weekend ahead, mostly outdoors with friends and family; but, also looming in my mind are so many upcoming fall events! For most of these events coming up, as a mom I think about what we need and how to prepare! Much to my and my husband’s dismay, so many of these things involve purchasing items to get ready. I suppose it’s the season we’re in. There are chorus and band concerts, fall games, horse shows, birthday parties, and a little travel added in. With upper elementary and middle school kids, we are extremely busy and I hear it doesn’t slow down anytime soon!

By ready, I mean, do you have a game day shirt, at the least?  I’m going to help you find some affordable and adorable options for tailgating and game day before selection is slim.  Football season will be here in less than a week!!

Our kids are growing up, so no longer can I dress them in cheer uniforms and team-themed cute outfits.  If you can, you are lucky!!  Enjoy it!!  Now, a school T-shirt is what I get, and I’ll take it!  For me and my husband, a dress or solid color shirt is best.  We stay so busy in the fall that a few game days a football season is good for us.  And by games, I’m talking about college football!  There’s nothing like a football Saturday in Athens for me.  The best.  This page may bleed red and black, but these same products are available for many collegiate teams.  Just click the pictures to see more options.

Game Day Gear for Tween Girls

Amazon has some adorable, trendy options like this one:

Deals on School Supplies

Advertising Disclosure: This post includes affiliate links. Please see our Privacy Policy and Disclosure for more details.


It’s that time again, time to shop for school supplies and other back to school items.  Wasn’t it just yesterday that the kids finished school?  Crazy to think another busy year is about to start (confession:  I love the summer time with the kids at home or away at camps and less on the schedule!)  But alas, it is that time for a new school year to start.  To me, shopping in advance and online is much easier and less stressful than fighting the crowds at the stores.  So, I want to share with you a few of the best deals on school supplies we are finding online!  These are some great deals!

Deals on School Supplies

Ticonderoga pencils from Amazon- 96 count

 

GLue sticks 30 count from Amazon

12 low odor expo markers

 

If you find a great deal and you’re able to purchase more than what your child’s supply list calls for, consider donating the extra to a group like Backpack Buddies in our hometown that gives bookbags and supplies to kids in need or to your teacher, or save it for another charity like Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes.  Now is usually a great time to stock up on school supplies for the year.  Think ahead to what needs you might come across this year.  Possibly even a Christmas stocking stuffer or teacher appreciation gift in the future.  You will be thankful when that time comes!

 

9 Must-Haves for Farmhouse Decor

Advertising Disclosure: This post includes affiliate links. Please see our Privacy Policy and Disclosure for more details.


Farmhouse Decor is relaxed, inviting, and inexpensive to achieve.  While it started out as a style only seen in rustic, rural farmhouses, the style has evolved to be achievable for anyone.  If you are looking to make small updates to your home, farmhouse decor items are fun and easy to include in your rooms.  Here are 9 must-haves for farmhouse décor.

  1. Inspirational quotes on simple signs

Make your home feel warm and inviting with simple reminders.  This sign from Hobby Lobby is perfect for farmhouse décor.

Love grows best Hobby Lobby wall decor

2.  Monogrammed family name signs

Etsy has a great selection of homemade and custom signs for custom farmhouse décor.

Custom Wood Monogram Etsy

3.  Casual throw pillows

These throw pillow covers were super inexpensive and an easy way to change out décor for the seasons.  If you have the pillow inserts already, you can order this 4-pack on Amazon for cheap and have a new farmhouse look in several days.

4.  Wooden ladder

We were fortunate to have my son and dad build a ladder just like this one for our basement farmhouse bathroom, but you can buy this one on Amazon.  Hang towels or blankets over the rungs to make it useful for your space.

                                      

5.  Galvanized olive bucket

I just love this olive bucket from Hobby Lobby!  It is so versatile and farmhouse style.

6.  Your family initial

Anything galvanized is perfect for farmhouse décor, and this letter would go great on a collage wall.

galvanized letter B Hobby Lobby

7.  Natural boxwood wreath or magnolia wreath

Natural wreaths are a great way to bring the outdoors in without the mess.  This particular one is made from preserved boxwood, so it needs to be misted every couple of weeks with water to stay looking fresh.  We have this one and it is holding up beautifully.

 

8.  Buffalo check napkins and tea towels

Buffalo check is so farmhouse chic, and I love the casual style, especially for Spring.

9.  Farmhouse Décor Tobacco basket

Perfect for a mantle, hung on the wall, or set on the coffee table, this tobacco basket is definitely farmhouse style.

Farmhouse décor is about living simply, and more than anything, being grateful for what you have every day.  Make your space beautiful with your own touch.  Add some of these or none at all, but just enjoy your home and time with family.  For special offers from the retailers mentioned above and others, check out our deals page.
