I wanted to let you know about a couple of great links I've found to check out the ads for the day after Thanksgiving a little early. Use these ads to plan what you will go ahead and buy and what you will wait to get after Thanksgiving.

Black Friday Info
Plan on getting up very early on Friday and bring an extra dose of patience with you while you shop as I'm sure this year will be more crowded than ever with people looking for deals. I usually go every year and I've always found it worth it as I save so much. Besides you can go home by lunchtime and take a good long nap!
