My toddler was up at 1:30am last night ready to party. While I was waiting for her to drift back to sleep, I decided to start searching through the black Friday ads that are already out. Most people use their time shopping on black Friday for buying Christmas gifts. The day after Thanksgiving is also THE DAY some people choose to kick off the Christmas season. It is a day that is set aside for decorating, crafting, or whatever their Christmas heart’s desire. If I weren’t going to be moving in just a couple of weeks, I would have already started decorating in October. YES, I’m one of THOSE! While looking through the many sales happening on black Friday, I noticed some great Holiday item/décor sales in some of the stores I frequent. Why not look for a few of these great deals while you are out shopping?! When it comes to Christmas decorating and crafting, there is no such thing as “too much”. Here’s a list of a few of my favorites that I found last night.
Wal-Mart is one of the big stops for a lot of people, so I’ll start with them. When you are finished wrestling over $20 bed sheets and $100 televisions, if there happens to be room left in your cart, head over to the Christmas trees and pick up the 7.5foot pre-lit tree they are offering for $68. If big trees are your thing, and owning a pre-lit tree is your dream, this tree is a good value for the size.
Moving onto Target. I am thinking about your Christmas morning photos with this one. They have some absolutely adorable Christmas jammies listed for between $8-$10. The best part is you can get matching sets for the whole family, including the dog.
Jammies are always one of the first clothing items picked through on black Friday, so after you get your family set, head over to the “wonder shop” in Target. It looks like they will be offering 40% off on select artificial trees. Also, they’ll have MY FAVORITE, Christmas laser projectors for the front yard on sale for $25. With a busy husband (who sometimes isn’t home for Holidays at all) and an even busier toddler, getting on the roof to put up lights isn’t always in the cards. They make so many cute and fun light designs in the projectors, and they have definitely been an outdoor Christmas decorating life saver for me in the past.
Something else I saw that stood out this black Friday will be at Stage Stores. These Holiday throw pillows are beyond cute and at $7.50-$9.99 they are priced to fly off the shelves quick.
Burlington Coat Factory:
If you happen to be in a Burlington look for these extremely cute decorative throws. The Buffalo Check is my favorite and would look so good with the deer silhouette pillow from Stage. Burlington lists them, starting out at $8.99.
No matter what, I find myself at Tractor Supply every black Friday. The biggest reason, they are one of the only stores on my list that stay true to opening only on Friday for black FRIDAY. They always have the best Christmas Décor that fits into my Country Style. Not only is the quality top notch, but the sales are unbeatable. I pick an ornament from Tractor Supply every year. If you have one nearby, I highly recommend stopping in to check out the black Friday sales in their ad.
Probably my favorite thing I saw during my late-night ad surfing was the Dollar Tree Holiday catalog. Y’all!!! Everything you need to craft with the kids, or for your DIY Holiday décor projects can be found at the Dollar Tree. Their Catalog was pretty beefy so if you are feeling extra spirited and have some energy left swing by there and pick up everything you could possibly want to kick off the 1st day of the Christmas Season with your family.
I cannot leave Amazon out. Of course my late night shenanigans online led me straight to Amazon to see what they had to offer in the way of Christmas decor. I ended up purchasing this 12 pack of mini stockings for only $12.95! A flipping steal if you ask me!! They are so cute and 3D. As soon as I saw them I knew that they were what I wanted to use to distribute my Christmas treats to friends and family this year. You can find them here if you are interested. 12 Mini 3D Stockings. They are so stinking cute and I can’t wait to get them!!
Michael’s and Hobby Lobby:
Michael’s and Hobby Lobby have not released their Black Friday Ads for 2018 yet but based on last year’s sales I’d say they are a MUST STOP for every DIYer or Crafter. They really could be a one stop shop for all of your Holiday Décor this Black Friday. Between the craft stores and dollar tree you could be fully stocked so that you can easily scratch the crafting itch any time your heart desires, well through spring.
Hopefully this list helps you find some of the best Christmas stuff out there during black Friday. I tell you what, this barely scratches the surface of what the biggest shopping day of the year has to offer. Most of you probably had your black Friday shopping strategy planned weeks ago. There is absolutely no harm in keeping your eyes open for the Christmas extras that are available at almost any store. Right?!
Most importantly, don’t forget to enjoy your Thanksgiving with your family and friends!
Disclaimer: The items I listed and the opinions I formed are based entirely on what I found in the current black Friday ads online. Some of the page numbers may be off due to the lack of physically having the ads in my hand. Every store has a limited quantity of each item listed and this article is not a guarantee that they will have the items mentioned. Most importantly be safe because we wouldn’t want to see any of our readers on the 10 o’clock news as part of one of their featured black Friday horror stories! Happy Shopping!
