Unfortunately the holidays have gotten overshadowed by shopping deals (cough cough I totally admit to being guilty of this) but it is important to step back and remember all the small things in life that truly make you smile. I stumbled upon this site and it reminds of us exactly that, all the small random things that make us smile, like knock knock jokes. Thirty Days of Thankfulness is such an awesome site with a positive message and beautiful art. Please check it out.

I don't even know where to start in terms of sales, but I will not be venturing out to the physical stores on Friday unlike many. I will however be watching the online sales in order to nab a few staples and gifts for family and friends. Whether you are shopping in person or online, remember to make lists of what you really need, what gifts you'd like to buy for family and friends, and beware of going over budget from sneaky sales. Most importantly, for the best deals do your research before heading out. Learn more Black Friday tips from the pros here.
And here's what NOT to buy on Black Friday and why.
Psst, not sure what to buy for your family and friends? Check out our Gift Guides here.

Looking to have your butt kicked into shape, really early in the morning, but for free? Don't forget about the November Project. Their motto: "Just show up." I've only been able to go on Wednesdays but I personally love it.
