Black Friday has really caught on over here hasn’t it?! There wasn’t a sign of any retailers reducing stock here in Ireland until recent years. We all just watched the news in amazement at shoppers in the U.S tearing each others hair out over a TV reduced to $10 or something ridiculous like that.
Now it’s happening over here but we’re a little more civilized (I think)
But I’m yet to catch on. Stupid I know, but I never have enough savings to get bargains over Thanksgiving weekend. If I was at all shopping savvy I would aim to do my Christmas shopping this weekend but no I’m not savvy at all! Our local Penny Bank paid out the cheques to all the wise people that have saved money over the past ten months and unfortunately I wasn’t one of them. I ask myself WHY every year. Why didn’t I save up? So so silly of me.
So here I am on Black Friday with my phone beeping away with notifications of this place and that place offering up to 50% off their products. I’ve bought one or two things but that’s it. Excitingly enough for me though our washing machine and oven both broke last week only a few days apart. So that’s where my husband and I will be this weekend – Trying to nab a decent bargain for two frickin important household appliances.
I may be seen tearing someones hair out over a cooker, who knows…..
It’s great that retailers are on board with reductions for Black Friday. I follow a lot of Independent businesses on Instagram and their products look fab. I haven’t bought from some of them yet but I’ll still share what discounts they are offering today and for the weekend, just in case you haven’t heard of them yet! And discounts on main stream shops too!
