Shopaholic- Our Massive Annual Ultimate Guide To Black Friday Shopping Has Arrived!
Last year we released our very first “Ultimate Guide To Black Friday Shopping” which covered a whole spectrum of retailers and was so popular with you, our fantastic readers, that this year we decided to expand the guide and release it much earlier. Covering details on sale periods and discount amounts on over 20 different stores including Anthropologie, Nordstrom, MAC Cosmetics, Ulta, J. Crew and many more to choose from, you can now relax and plan the day somewhat easily.
Our only advice for surviving this year’s post-thanksgiving shopping apocalypse? Wear comfortable shoes.
