Thanksgiving is almost here, which means eating turkey, watching
Charlie Brown, and knocking out the women next to you because she dared to grab the last 75 percent off toaster. 'Tis the season for Black Friday shopping. Sarcasm aside, there are some pretty fantastic Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals you should know about, but those ads can be totally overwhelming. If you're not looking for something specific, all of those percentages and Buy One Get Ones (or BOGOs for the pros) can blur together to make a big old mess and next thing you know, you're tossing the shopping list and vowing to buy everyone something off of those late night infomercials.
Breathe. I've got your back. I've poured through some of the most popular Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales to find the deals you need to know about. I'm a mama, so I know that I want to focus on the things I need in our home, the things both my daughter and I can benefit from, and any deal that makes my life a little bit easier. And do I even have to mention the toys? I've compiled the best Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals you need to know about, but this isn't an exclusive list. Because prices vary by location and store, this list only includes the generic sales and hot ticket items that have slashed prices. But rest assured that all of your, and your kids', favorites are here.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle toys, clothing for kids, household items you need -- all here. So grab your pen, read through the list, and get ready to win the battle of the holiday shopping without breaking a sweat. (OK. You might break a little bit of a sweat because those Elsa and Anna singing dolls are no joke, but at least you know the best deals on them.)
