Black Friday Deals and My Shopping List

It's the most wonderful time of the year - Black Friday!

Just kidding, but I do tend to loose all aspects of self control when Black Friday hits. Anything that is remotely a good deal or has a big sign next to it, I fall prey today. I was walking home from work and saw that L'Occitane had started their Black Friday deals already, and I bought it all.

SO to save you - and myself - from making that same mistake tomorrow online and Friday in stores, I am detailing out some of the best deals and listing out what I plan to buy. Hopefully I can stick to just my shopping list and a few other items as gifts!

Clothing Deals

  • JCrew: 40 to 50% off everything, with bigger discounts expected at JCrew Factory

  • LOFT: 50% off everything (if they mirror last year)

  • Banana Republic: 50% off everything

  • Gap: 50% off all items

  • Express: 50% off everything

  • Free People: 50% off select items (pre-sale has already started!)

  • Nordstrom Rack: Clear the Rack with an extra 30% off clearance items, plus specialty deals on select items

  • Nordstrom: 10 to 50% off select items

  • Bloomingdales: Extra 25% off sale items

  • Macy's: All kinds of fabulous doorbusters - great deals on coats, winter accessories & even kitchen appliances!

Beauty Deals

Beauty stores are all about giving doorbuster sets at crazy good prices. I have been going through the listings and trying to select items ahead of time so I do not overspend..because $15 sets can add up quickly.

  • Ulta: Doorbuster sets! I have my eyes on a Revlon Blow Dryer, Naked Palette, and Anastasia Palette. They are also giving a free swag bag with every $60 purchase, so I will be logging onto their website right at 6PM ET Thursday with a cart ready to go...

  • Sephora: Doorbuster sets! Log into their app to view all the deals ahead of time. I have my eyes on a Milk Duo and Jack Black lip balm set.

  • L'Occtaine: Doorbuster sets and free swag back with every $100 spent (multiple tiers of spend/swag)! I have already shopped this sale today on Fifth Ave and baby was it good. There was a table of gift sets at buy 3 get 1 free, so naturally I stocked up on gifts for my mom, grandma, sister, and more! By "more", I mean that I bought a couple things without a person in mind because something always comes up.

  • Bath & Body Works: All the discounts, including: Buy 3 get 3 free, $10 off 3-wick candles, 5 hand soaps for $23, 5 face masks for $10 and more.

Food Deals

  • Hello Fresh: 8 meals free when you sign up aka $20 off your first 4 orders

  • Blue Apron: $20 off your first 3 boxes..TBD if they will do more day of!

My Shopping List

  • JCrew Vail Parka

  • JCrew Tights

  • Naked Petite Heat Palette

  • Anastasia Glow Palette

  • Milk Duo

  • L'Occitane Gift Set (got two already!)

  • Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer (heavily recommended by my BFF)

  • Work Pants (going to check LOFT & Banana Republic)

  • Workout Clothes (going straight to the Zella sale rack at Nordstrom Rack)

  • Other gifts for my dad, brother, and boyfriend (clearly it was much easier to shop for the ladies in my life...)

What is on your Black Friday wish list?
