Get Great Deals on Black Friday at Target

Can you believe that next week will be November already? Despite the craziness of this year as a whole, it still seems like time has raced by so quickly. My kids mentioned last week that we have to start pulling our winter holiday decor out of storage soon, and I got excited and nervous at the same time. I am so ready, yet not even remotely ready at the same time. 

One thing that I am looking forward to is Black Friday shopping. This is definitely the best time to get the greatest deals of the year. I plan my gift-giving list according to sales, coupons, and promo codes as much as possible. This year is obviously a whole lot different when it comes to shopping in store, but it doesn't mean you can't pull it off with some planning and extra safety measures lined up. 

This year we plan to hit up those Target Black Friday Deals, especially for their tech deals. Since most of us are still pretty much at home all day, electronics and leisure wear is where it's at! My son has become quite the gamer, so I hope to get a crazy good deal on gaming headphones. I might even go ahead an make purchases for his birthday next year and hide them away. He will be turning 13, so gifts will start costing a whole lot more! 

Since Black Friday 2020 is unlike the previous years, you have to plan your outing carefully. Make sure you bring your mask and hand sanitizer above everything else! I also highly suggest a small cooler to keep in your car for bottled water or juice. Snacks are a must if you start to run low on energy. If you are one to overheat easily like I do, be sure to dress in layers. You do not want to feel faint in a store! For added safety, it's best to shop in pairs, so grab a shopping buddy and make it a fun outing. Oh, and don't forget to double-check those promo codes and coupons, especially from Slickdeals. 

Of course, there is also online shopping for those who prefer the privacy and quiet with solo shopping. No matter which way you choose to shop, this is the best time of year to score the lowest prices on toys, electronics, and more. I am hoping to find some small kitchen appliances for myself this year. Now I'm getting excited about my Target shopping trip! 

So what's on your holiday wish list? Are you planning on venturing out on Black Friday? 

Keep Your Electronics Charged While On-The-Go With The Eggtronic Laptop Power Bank

Do you ever think about what your life would be like without any electronic devices? I am quite certain most if us would be lost! There is a not a day that I'm not using my phone, laptop or tablet. They have become a such a big part of daily life whether it's for work, keeping up with friends on social media or simply listening to music or playing a game to relax. I recall recently being at our local precinct to vote in the primary election. We had no idea that we were going to be standing in line for 4.5 hours. Guess who had their phones on only a half charge? It's a horrible feeling when you watch the phone battery bar go in the red, and slowly deplete. 

With all of us being super dependent on our electronics, especially with more people working from home and kids doing virtual school, we have to stay charged at all times. We were so happy to receive a laptop power bank from Eggtronic to try out. I don't even want to discuss how many devices we have in our home. There are times when we work outside on the back porch, and having a portable charger comes in handy. The package included: Laptop Power Bank, USB-C to USB-C cable (3ft), USB-C to USB-A adapter tip, user manual. It offers Universal compatibility with all USB-C and USB devices. 

It lets you recharge up to three devices simultaneously through its three ports: 45W USB-C Power Delivery, USB Quick Charge and standard USB 2.1A. The generous 20,000mAh battery capacity equals 4-8 charges for your smartphone, 3-5 charges for your tablet or 1.5 charges for your laptop. 

The two high-power fast charge ports (USB-C PD and USB Quick Charge) save you valuable time. Looking to top up your Macbook or other USB-C laptop? The 45W USB-C Power Delivery output fast charges it. Stylish and practically designed with soft water-repellent canvas and an easy-to-read LCD display. 

The Eggtronic laptop power bank would make the perfect gift this upcoming holiday season for practically anyone on your list. It retails for under $90 and definitely delivers a powerful and fast charge for your devices. It is perfect to have during the storm season when the power is likely to go out. Since this power bank holds a charge for an extended time, you will have more peace of mind that you are able to keep your devices charged in the event of an emergency. Also, since you can charge multiple devices at once, this will make those long road trips with the family a bit easier. No more fighting for the charger. 

Our family definitely recommends this power bank. Thank you so much Eggtronic for the product sample. All opinions are our own. Thank you for stopping by today! 

Save On Back-To-School Items And More With Groupon Goods

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are my own as always.

Do you love saving money? Of course you do! Who doesn't want to get the very best deal on items you need or even want. With back-to-school season here, many of you might be looking for electronics for your kids. In my case, my college daughters have never-ending lists of things they need. If you are searching for laptops, printers, headphones or just about anything else, Groupon Goods is your answer. I was browsing their site and was blown away by the amazing deals they offered. It made me kick myself when I saw the price of an activity tracker compared to what we recently paid at a department store. We could have gotten three for the price of one had we gone through Groupon.
::Insert the stunned, wide-eyed emoji here::

Look at these deals for a laptop computer and wireless printer.

If you are on a budget sending your kid off to college, this is a great deal. $200 for a printer and computer is unheard of. 

Another great thing I like about Groupon is that you can get local deals. This is perfect if you are taking a trip and need some discounts for local services, things to do or dining spots. I am going to Charleston, SC next next month and I am going to browse around Groupon to see what deals I can find there.

If you are looking for specific items, I urge you to check out Groupon Goods first. I am losing my mind over the kitchen appliances! I found an oil-less fryer and electric pressure cooker that is screaming my name! There are so many amazing products to choose from and the prices are so reasonable.

Be sure and follow Groupon on Facebook and Twitter for product promotions and updates.


Holiday Gift Guide: VTech® InnoTab MAX (Giveaway) CLOSED

**WINNER IS Kim S.** Congratulations! 
Do you have a little one that you are thinking about purchasing a tablet for, but you aren't quite sure what to get? I might be able to help. The Vtech InnoTab MAX is a really nice high-quality tablet that is built for a kid, yet gives a slightly grown-up feel. Whether we like it or not, technology is here to stay and it is important that our kids have access at an early age. The InnoTab MAX is an excellent way to guide your child on using an electronic device while also being able to monitor what they are doing. Check out the details below about the products:

VTech® InnoTab MAX (Ages 3-9 years, MSRP: $109.99)

• VTech’s 4th generation kids’ learning tablet features its fastest processor yet with up to six times the processing power of previous generation and a 7” high-resolution multi-touch screen display

My thoughts about the VTech InnoTab MAX:

  • It has a very large screen and the quality and clarity are as good as any other tablet I have used. 
  • We find it to be very user-friendly and my six year old son seems to have no problems navigating through the apps on his own. 
  • I love that I can teach my son how to “text” since he will eventually have his own phone. It’s a great way to introduce it. 
  • It has a really good battery life and I like that it has buttons for volume control, home screen and shut-off/on. 
  • I like the alarm clock function. This is great for teaching your little responsibility to get up in the morning and get his/her day started. 
  • The carrying handle is perfect for smaller hands and the cover is convenient when not in use. It’s also lightweight and perfect for travel. 
  • My son loves the variety of activities available and there are tons of options to purchase and download if you choose (at parent's discretion). 
  • The camera is really neat and I like that you can position it in virtually any direction you want.
