My Personal List of this Weekend's Best Sales & Coupon Codes (!!)

The Best Black Friday and Cyber Monday Deals

The holiday season has officially arrived! It's become sort of a tradition around here for me to share my personal list of of Black Friday/Small Business Saturday/Cyber Monday deals on the blog. In the week leading up to Thanksgiving, when I come across any seriously amazing deals and/or coupon codes, I record them, then compile my annual list of favorites to share with you guys (the full list is below).  I usually post them on Black Friday itself, but this year I decided to take Friday off (and a little advance notice is always nice anyway, right?).

First and foremost, although the list below is mainly for larger stores, please check out your favorite small online shops and visit Etsy! Many small and independent businesses will be having incredible discounts this weekend, and most don't have the big advertising budgets to announce them far and wide in advance like bigger companies do. You'd be surprised at how much goodness you can find. If you own a small business or Etsy shop and are having a sale, please share it in the comments so that my readers and I can check it out! (And although our shop did our annual Black Friday sale early this year, here's a special code for 10% off your purchase at Bubby & Bean Art, good today through end-of-day on Small Business Saturday: BLOGLOVE10).

I hope this list saves you all a little money this weekend! Also be sure to check out Bubby and Bean's amazing sponsors (just click on their images over there in the right sidebar) if you're doing holiday shopping this weekend. Many of them have really great specials going on that you don't want to miss. Happy shopping!

P.S. That adorable winter cardboard scene in the top image, along with some equally adorable DIY projects, can be found over at Mr. Printables.



  1. WEST ELM! I was just there last weekend scoping out the goods. Ha ha. I'm so ready.

  2. Thanks for posting all these, Melissa! We aren't traveling this year due to me being so busy, so for once, I'm going to try to take advantage of some Black Friday sales! :)

    Also, I posted a few coupon codes from Etsy sellers having sales too if you're interested. xoxo

  3. I've found some great Black Friday deals from your list of faves in past years. Thanks for this year's.

    Hope you have a great Thanksgiving and Essley enjoys her first!

  4. TOMS is having a sale, eh? That's very good news :)

  5. Oh Melissa, this is just what I did not need! Being in Canada I try very hard to avoid Black Friday shopping because deals are just an excuse - ahem, reason to justify - extra purchases. But with all of these discounts, who can say no?!

  6. Thanks for your comments you guys! Happy Thanksgiving!
