My Black Friday + Cyber Monday Picks

2020 Black Friday Sales

Oh my goodness, anyone else feel like the sales started earlier and are steeper discounts this year? It seemed like every day this week another promotion was announced. While I’ve certainly gone off my list once or twice, I am doing a pretty good job sticking to those items I had already wanted to give as gifts. 

I have had to remind myself that these are just sales, which doesn’t mean I need to buy everything (or anything!). There will be other sales. If you are in the market for an item that happens to be on sale, that’s great! If not, do not succumb to the pressure to buy.

I put together a list of all the sales I’ve checked out or shopped, along with my picks at each, and separated the list into small businesses and big brands. As I was putting it together I was so happy to realize the vast majority of my shopping and recommendations come from small businesses, many of them female founded. 

This post turned into a big labor of love. Some of the retailers I included below participate in the affiliate program I belong to, which means I earn a small commission if you click on a link and make a purchase. This doesn’t cost you anything extra so I would be very appreciative if you use my links whenever possible. 😘
