Did you find some great Black Friday deals this year?
Typically, I go a little crazy on this huge shopping day – but this year I was a bit more calculated in what I got.
We are not doing a big Christmas extravaganza this year, so the pressure is off to pick up tons of gifts (thank goodness!).

Instead, I focused on deals for my blogging business and bought things that I needed that hopefully will actually help me to cut costs in the year ahead.
Here are some of the Black Friday deals that I took advantage of:
AppSumo Black Friday Deals
AppSumo is one of my favorite places to pick up great deals for my blogging business all year round.
But on Black Friday they somehow manage to up the ante and offer even more enticing packages.
This year I grabbed the deal on Plutio, Hike SEO, and DepositPhotos.
I was really bummed to miss out on the Social Bee deal. I tried so hard to stay awake until midnight on Thanksgving but after cooking all day, I could not do it. When I woke up on Friday morning the deal was sold out. 🙁
I might actually grab another DepositPhotos deal before the sale ends. They have great stock photography you can use for your blog posts and for Pinterest. Even better – the AppSumo deals are stackable and the credits never expire.
Electronics and Black Friday
Black Friday is one of the best days to grab deals on electronics – Cyber Monday being another great day for electronics shopping.
The hardest part is trying to guess if Cyber Monday will bring you a better deal on what you want than the deal that you get on Black Friday.
I have been coveting a set of Bose noise canceling wireless headphones. I know these will come in handy for recording video for my blog and also for listening to podcasts and training videos – like those in Elite Blog Academy – when the room is noisy.
They are on sale practically everywhere right yesterday and right now.
And the Triple Midnight color was love at first sight.
But will the price go down even further on Cyber Monday? And if it does, will I be able to snag the color that I want or will it sell out?
I have been wanting to try a Gravity Blanket out for quite some time now.
But I really wanted to try the Gravity Blankets brand – and wouldn't you know it, they were on sale for Black Friday, too.
Black Friday Deals That Are Tempting
Cricut Black Friday Sale
The Cricut Black Friday sale is still going strong.
Not only do they have up to 80% off of select machines and materials they also are offering $10 in digital credit if you spend $50.
I got my Cricut Explore Air II about a year ago, and I am ashamed to admit that I have used it sporadically though I have had the best of intentions to really jump in.
There are a few things in this sale that are really tempting me like this fun Christmas sampler vinyl pack.
Luckily I still have a few days left to think on that.
