My Favorite Black Friday Deals!

Happy Black Friday, I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! For me, Thanksgiving is one of my favorites. This past year I have been focusing on finding gratitude in the smallest actions. And I have to say, it has reallly changed my whole outlook; as Rachel Hollis says “When you look for gratitude, you will find it.” I have also been working hard on helping my children see the positives, finding gratitude in the simplest of things. Now, they are only 21 months and 3 ½, but if you can teach them from a young age, it will just become the norm and not something that they have to learn in their 30’s, at least that’s the goal. 

But, in constantly looking for gratitude I enjoy any day that puts the main focus on that practice. Also, I LOVE Thanksgiving food. I’m a girl who only eats chicken and turkey, so this is my holiday! 

Now to what most of us are thankful for today, the sales. Below is a list of my top five favorite Black Friday deals. Enjoy!


 ***Side note, if you are not shopping with Rakuten, you should be. It’s cash back from hundreds of stores, in store and online. I will include the cash back percentages below for stores that participate. And if you’d like to sign up, just use this link, and you will receive $10 once you spend $25. It will go automatically into your account and then you will receive a reward check four times a year. It’s great! I’ve already earned over $300 back in the few years that I have been signed up. Oh and the best part, it’s FREE!!)


    1.   bareMinerals – 25% off site wide (16% cash back with Rakuten)

2.   Spanx – 20% off, and Spanx never go on sale, now is the time to stock up or try them. My favorite leggings are their Look at Me Now Seemless Leggings in camo print, I wear them all the time. (1.5% cash back with Rakuten)

3.   Nordstrom – up to 50% off, I took advantage and bought some Zella leggings, most are 33% off right now (I bet you’re starting to see a theme, leggings are my go to outfit when home with the boys)

4.   Gap – 60% off everything, 50% off with code BLKFRIDAY and 10% off with code BESTEVER (10% cash back with Rakuten)

5.   Target – soooo many deals, but spend $50 today and get a 20% off coupon (up to 5% cash back with Rakuten)
