Opt Outside + deals before Black Friday

Hello mon frers. I hope you had a good Thanksgiving. I will be rolling my overstuffed self all over this beach town today as I Opt Outside on Black Friday and get some of the butter and gravy moving through the system.

I've never been a Black Friday shopper. I hate crowds and I prefer to have 80% of my Christmas shopping done before Thanksgiving, but I do like to take advantage of deals online on things for me and MFD (I buy both of our Christmas gifts) or the house. You can get great deals on the internets too. And on Wednesday, which means there's no need for Thursday or Friday shopping in my life. Here are some things I picked up this year, and as always no affiliate links:

Sephora had 50% off certain items Wednesday
Urban Decay Vice Lipstick $8.50, regularly $17 (in F-Bomb and TMI)
Living Proof Dry Shampoo Duo $22, regularly $34 (thanks Emily for the heads up)

Target had a Black Friday sneak peak for redcard holders Wednesday so I got the shore house some gifts. You have to add/change little things every year to keep it fresh.
Crock Pot 4.5 qt $10, regularly $19.99
Threshold fuzzy blankets in full/queen in scarlet mystery and green $18, regularly $39.99
Bodum French Press $10, regularly $19.99

Old Navy was running 50% off on Wednesday
Black dress for $18.49, originally $36.99
Go-warm open front hoodie for $18.49, originally $36.99 - my obsession this year. I have the heather gray and love it and I got the other two colors (navy and black)
Pixie Long Pants in olive through this for $17.49, originally $34.99 and rarely on sale. I live in these for work.

TOMs is offering 25% off certain styles with the code THANKFUL, so I ordered a pair of black velvet and black wool but will only be keeping one. 

I'm waiting to pull the trigger on a cart full of books on Amazon to take advantage of their $10 off $25 deal they usually run around now. 

I like the premise of the Opt Outside movement. Today's activities will include a sunrise, beach trash pickup, many dog walks, and watching Santa ascend from atop a building (pics below from 2015). ho ho ho, mofos.

What are your plans for today? Will you be outside, inside shopping, or both? Have you come upon any awesome deals? Anyone see a stainless steel roasting pan at a great price? Anyone? Bueller?


  1. My husband just asked me what is on our agenda for today so I will answer the both of you. 😊 We are cleaning and grocery shopping. His family is having Christmas tomorrow so we will also be wrapping gifts. I’m pretty sure I’m handing that chore off to him he just doesn’t know it yet.
    I want to get all the chores done today because tomorrow has the potential to be draining and Sunday I want to rest ahead of a very busy week.

  2. My sister and I are going shopping. We went last year and it was such a fun day. We don't go until 3 or 4 in the afternoon so the crazy crowds are usually gone by then. I'm doing some online shopping this morning though and those deals you found are awesome.

  3. That open front hoodie looks so cozy!! Very tempting...

  4. I told myself this year I wouldn't do any shopping. HA fail! I have such a love hate with the Pixie pants, I want to love them because they're so cute but they don't ever fit right.

  5. Oh man. You got some steals! I love the colors of those UD lipsticks! And that Target blanket price! Nice!

  6. I've been seeing all-clad roasting pans at Home Goods. Good prices. Let me know if you want me to pick you one up next time I see one!
