It’s November, and that means that one of my favorite days of the year is here!
This is the day that my mother & I wake up around 2:00 a.m., jump out of bed, drink a couple of cups of Joe, and out the door we GO!
I love driving up to a store & seeing all those crazy Black Friday Fanatics who have been lined up for hours outside the store, ready to run in and find that super sale! It’s my kind of fun, and I can’t wait for it to be finally here.
But , things have changed over the years, and buying online and skipping the long lines have become just as popular. Seriously, look at Amazon’s deals below!
Amazon Kindle Fire 7 $33
ECOVACS Robotic Vacuum Cleaner with Mop and Water Tank – Automatic Floor Cleaning Robot $135
PureSpa Essential Oil Diffuser — Compact Ultrasonic Aromatherapy Diffuser With Ionizer and Color-Changing Light
So, here are some ways that I like to prepare for my Black Friday savings adventure, I have three places that I like to follow online.
When you sign up for the above site’s email lists, you will get an alert every time a new Black Friday ad becomes available.
It’s amazing to me that you can pretty much find anything you want at a rock bottom price on Black Friday & Cyber Monday, and have your Christmas shopping done!
So, here’s to a successful Black Friday to all you fanatics, and just so ya know that some of the links in this post are my affiliate links, and I may get a small commission fee if you decide to buy! Thank you for your continued support.
I have a 17-year-old daughter, who has made it pretty clear to me & the rest of my family what she would “love” to have for Christmas. (Gosh, it sure is easier when they tell you what they would like). I also have several girlfriends with daughter’s around the same age, who pretty much want the same things.
So, below are some suggested gift ideas for the girl teens out there who think that “us” parents don’t know what’s going on! 🙂
OMGosh! This one cracks me up, because seriously, how many cell phone covers can a person have? I think these girls go to school and see who has the most bedazzled cell phone case, and what accessories it comes with. Boy, have things changed since I was in high school. 🙂
Here are a few cases that I know my daughter likes, because she will sent me a text message with link. Modern technology, ya got to love it!
Parents! When your teen drops their phone, and cracks the screen for the first time, and you have paid the hefty price to get it fixed, it’s time to get them a cover that really protects! I have had the above Otterbox case for the past couple of years, and it works like a charm and looks just as good as the first day I bought it! $20
This Lifeproof case is a little more expensive, but it is waterproof. Which, works for my family in case you happen to drop your phone in the commode or leave it outside all night. Prices vary by color.
This is probably my #1 gift to give to teens, because I don’t want to hear the classic, “My phone was dead” when I need to get a hold of them. So, this portable, Anker cell phone charger, is my solution to that, and if they lose this, there really in trouble. LOL
I also own this Anker charger, and I like that it fits right into my purse, and it charges my phone quickly. $20
My kids really don’t want to hear about how Dr. Dre was really from my decade, they just want the Beats headphones! Whatever!! LOL Also, you can save by getting refurbished headphones at Wal-Mart. Check back often because they go quickly at this price! Prices vary.
For all of you Walking Dead fans, and this includes my daughter, here are some Zombie slippers. $10
I bought this Bose wireless, waterproof, bluetooth speaker for my hubby last year, and he loves it. Unfortunately for my guy, so do my kids, because this speaker has a loud, booming, sound that I can hear from different rooms of the house, such as: the bathroom, garage, and of course their rooms. $129
This is the PERFECT gift for any teen who has a problem with keeping time, at least I know mine does! It’s at available at Amazon for $15, and highly recommend you look at all of the cool New & Interesting Finds on Amazon. They update it daily, and it’s full of fun, geeky, and hard to please gifts for anyone on your list.
I hope you enjoyed some of my girl teen gift suggestions, because I know that they are really hard to shop for. Of course you can always give them gift cards and let them pick out what they want for themselves, but it’s just not as fun. LOL
Like many of you, I spend more than half of my day online searching for daily deals, signing up for free products, or discovering great D.I.Y. saving ideas. Today I am sharing with you the only way I know how to get my swag on! It’s one of my favorite online reward programs that I have personally earned products, gift cards, or some good old-fashioned cash. My friends, family, and co-workers think it’s funny when I tell them what products or rewards that I received that week, but I also know that they love when I share my goodies with them! Check out how you can get your swag on, and get paid for it below:
Swagbucks is a online reward program where you earn “Swagbucks” by clicking on the “earn” tab. You can answer polls, take surveys, buy one their daily deals, or play games. They also host Twitter trivia parties, video challenges, or contests. Swagbucks takes the time to make their rewards program fun, entertaining, and engaging. This is my favorite place to earn Amazon Gift cards, and help with the cost of my spending habits on Amazon! 🙂
And the best part about Swagbucks is that they keep up with the times! They now have a mobile app which means you can take your swag with you on the go and score even more savings. Cha-Ching!
