Let me just say that the most important thing you can do for yourself when getting deals at Thanksgiving sales, is to be prepared! The worst thing you can do is just show up to a sale and mindlessly buy whatever just because it's on sale. You end up spending more than you want and with things you don't need.
That's why you should shop before all the sales and not buy anything. This way you make smarter choices. You can take a day or two and digest what is it that you need. You can really determine the things that made you feel beautiful. What made you feel like you? And what you would be sad about if you didn't go for?
Just one post this week to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving! William and I are off to spend time with loved ones in Oklahoma. And to let you know which Black Friday deals I'm keeping my eyes on. One of my rituals consists of the week before or the week of Thanksgiving week, I go to all the stores I love and try on whatever I want. Then I look to see if those items are available online. Next I check on Black Friday morning to see how much those items I'm eyeing are on sale. If I think that's the best deal, then I go for it! Of course more and more companies are lengthening their sales. Some places start on Wednesday and of course be sure to keep checking through Cyber Monday for online deals. These jeans are on super sale right now, so you should snag a pair! Can't go wrong with some ripped boyfriend skinnies.
Some stores I always keep my eyes on are:
J. Crew Factory - They always have at least 50% off or more during the Thanksgiving sales. It's the perfect opportunity to stock up on anything!
Off Saks 5th Avenue - I love to buy shoes here. They run 70% off or more. I also like to scout out purses here.
Anthropologie - Anthro is not known for running the crazy, make you gasp Black Friday sales, but sometimes they surprise you. I always like to be prepared just in case I can snag an awesome deal.
Madewell - Again, not the hugest sales. But Madewell's denim is my fav and any percent off helps!
Urban Outfitters - Great place to scout out a hat! And I love their intimates, specifically their lacy racerback bras!
Amazon - Get those gifts decided on and then get to Amazon.com to see if any of your items will be on sale!
I wish all of you the best Thanksgiving! And the best favor when it comes to sales! Shop smart, it's what makes your money go further and work for you. Be safe and cherish the time with loved ones!
