Black Friday Steals and Deals!

If you are reading this, that probably means you decided NOT to brave the crowds in the shopping malls and department stores today.

Or maybe you already shopped and are home again – I heard some of the sales were starting as “early” at 3:30 in the morning this year. I apologize ahead of time if you were one of the 3:30 shoppers this morning, but I think that’s just a bit on the nutty side. (Probably because I value my sleep so much, and I get testy when my children wake me up at 3:30 a.m…. I can’t imagine SHOPPING at that time!)

Regardless of whether you were out and about…or not… you are HERE now, and I’ve got a bunch of fun links for you today. I’ve looked for links to deals, specials, sales, and even a few freebies and giveaways.
