I love to shop and that is a fact. Black Friday is the one day where Dad goes out and tries to by new toys.


I’ve not been very successful over the past few years, so this year, I’m going to try something different. I’m going cyber-shopping for Black Friday deals. I want to minimize my efforts and get the best bang for the buck.

My goals:

  • Best deals for least effort. This includes free-shipping
  • Avoid the masses at brick-and-mortar
  • Get new toys.. (iPad, iPad Mini, Roku, Apple TV)


Not that I need much in my life in terms of new toys, but everyone knows, you can never have too many toys..


I came across this Clark Howard  guide-to-black-friday-shopping posting that really gave some really sensible tips for going cyber or being the bricks and mortar shopping.


You be the judge. What are your best tips or Black Friday Shopping?



Black Friday 2010 – R U Ready?

As many of my readers know,  I moderate multiple forums on  Many of my links for deals and steals can be found on the forums site.  I’ve posted multiple notes on Black Friday related information on the forums site.  I gathered this information via emails that I get from readers, and from newsletters I read.

I’m doing this as a public service.. I’m not getting any financial gains from posting this information. I started gathering this information, because I wanted to outdo my buddy AK, who has been a guest blogger here. Now I an certain that he will post his witty response to this, but hey.. what’s wrong with a little competition between friends?

Here’s where you come in. Go to the Forum Site and browse around and post a comment. Doesn’t cost anything, and you actually might find something that you may have an opinion on.
