Sharing is caring!

One of our goals at This Blue Dress is to help you save money while still enjoy shopping for things that you love! With a good plan, Black Friday is a great opportunity to get fabulous gifts or things from your wish list in a budget-friendly way. To help, we’ve compiled our top items and sales that we’ll be hitting this year.

*Some of these links are affiliate links. You can learn more about them here. Thanks for your support! 

This is not your average list!! We are actually purchasing these products, shopping these particular sales, or offering these deals ourselves this year so we truly feel they are the cream of the crop!


Amazon is a This Blue Dress favorite. You can already score some great deals, and they’ll continue to have them from Black Friday-Cyber Monday and beyond. Two deals we’re snagging for sure:

This 5.5 qt family-sized air fryer

The Amazon Fire Tablet 8 (highest rated tablet in its price range

But you’ll probably be able to find a good deal for most items on your shopping list. If you’re not already a member of Amazon Prime, we highly recommend trying it out with a free trial. We love the free and fast shipping!

This Blue Dress TIP: Get a free Swagbucks or Ebates account to save even more money on Amazon and hundreds of other stores! It literally takes seconds to save money shopping! We love using both because sometimes they offer different rebates so you can select the highest one for your purchase.

Other Big Store Sales We Love

Black Friday deal Favorites from This Blue Dress


After going through several Black Friday mailers, our favorite stores for the best deals were JCPenney, Kohls, Menards, and Walmart. These stores had a large variety of items on super sale and had competitive pricing for traditional Black Friday sale items like electronics and small appliances. Madison and Makayla going to go TV shopping at Walmart this year since they have some great starter flat screens on sale.

Shopping “Small”

Our Favorite Black Friday deals and stores #thisbluedress #blackfriday

Local businesses may have sales for Small Business Saturday, but they’ll often have savings all weekend long. We come from entrepreneur stock and love supporting small businesses. Also, consider friends who sell products for direct sales and multi-level marketing businesses! Many consultants offer amazing discounts during this shopping season.

Money Saving Mom is definitely not “small”, but she fits in the entrepreneur category for sure! If you want to take an online course that will improve your health, save you money, improve your routines, or help you set up a blog? We’ve purchased many of Crystal Paine of Money Saving Mom’s courses, and they are life-changing! Engaging but practical tips for real life. She’s having a fabulous Black Friday Sale with up to 50% off her most popular courses with code BF2018. We particularly recommend her Make Over Your Mornings course.

Custom Family Proclamations has amazing custom prints of The Family: A Proclamation to the World. She’s offering 30% for Black Friday! You can read our review here.
