My Favorite (very) Affordable Black Friday Deals…

By fashion, holiday, lifestyle No Comments

LET THE SALES COMMENCE

I’ve taken some time to put together a shopping list of items from my favorite affordable retailers. Boohoo is currently having a 60% off everything sale. Gap has 50% off everything, plus an extra 10% off coupon on the homepage of their site that is applied immediately with the click of a button. Missguided, a UK based site, has 50% off storewide. I love shopping there for unique instagramable pieces. Forever 21 is offering 30% off and free shipping. I shop there for inexpensive trendy pieces. Sometimes I’ll test if I like a style before investing in the style in a better quality. Some of the larger ticketed items are at Nordstrom and they are offering up to 60% off. Lastly, Express has a 50% off sale with free shipping.

I separated some of the clothing items that stood out to me by store.

Everything on this list, I would buy. In fact, many of the items are similar to things I have in my closet today.

Every single item is on sale and most of them are under $60. It’s the perfect time to buy them with all of the Black Friday deals happening. If you’re wanting to shop for Cyber Monday, but you see an item you’d like to buy now, download the shoptagr app. I just downloaded it a few weeks ago and I love that I’ve gotten notifications as soon as something I wanted went on sale this week.

Shoptagr has no idea that I exist, but I want to pass on my money saving tips so you can shop smart.  I also use a site and app called Ebates, for most of my online shopping.  If you visit a website via Ebates, and buy something, you will get a percentage back in a paypal account of your choosing.

Between these two dishes, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
