One of my most favorite days of the year is finally here, Black Friday! I absolutely love shopping on this day. It’s been a family ritual for years now. My mom and I will grab our Peppermint Mocha from Starbucks early Friday morning before hitting the mall for a few hours. Usually, my mom is done by around Noon but I keep going until late in the evening. I love the hustle and bustle in all the stores, the sounds of the holidays being played throughout the shopping areas, and the smell of all those delicious roasting cashews and almonds from the vendors. This year has been a little strange to me because stores all started their sales early this week which to me takes the fun out of Black Friday. However, I do understand it gives people a chance to start their shopping earlier. The stores I absolutely always visit on this day are: Banana Republic, GAP, Anthropologie, Macy’s, Pottery Barn, Williams-Sonoma,World Market, Target, and Home Depot(for the hubs). Some things I do to make the day a little easier:1. Lots of coffee throughout the day. 2. Comfortable but cute shoes. 3. I have a list of the items I am looking for and hit those stores first. 4. I always buy a new ornament for the tree this day from Pottery Barn. 5. Check online retailers too because sometimes there’s more of a selection than in the actual stores.
