It took me years to get over the anxiety leftover from working Black Friday behind the counter. I still will never set foot in a store on this day. I have slowly recovered, and now Black Friday is one of my favorite online shopping times.
The internet is magic, filled with unbelievable sales the whole weekend. This is when I do a good amount of restocking for the year. Most sites offer free shipping and some of the best discounts of the year!
Here's some to watch:
Check this link for frugal finds from Drugstores and the like
A mix of stores, Seventeen would never steer you wrong
I purchase all my mascaras for the year here
Makeup For Life has some great links
Refinery 29 lists some great picks
Basically, keep an eye for any of your favorite brands and stores, they will all have some type of deal. As we get closer, more lists pop up in your Black Friday/Cyber Monday searches. I will update as I catch them.

In addition to all the hours of travel, makeup. cleaning, prepping, breaking down and shopping, I forget how much paperwork there is. Tracking expenses, updating my portfolio, following up with clients is all very time consuming. My home office days are very limited. Today I have gotten so much done. Sifting through the story of this year.
