My Personal List of This Week's Best Deals and Coupon Codes (6th Annual Edition)

The Best 2018 Black Friday and Cyber Monday Deals

Happy Thanksgiving to all of my friends here in the states! Tomorrow is one of my favorite days of the year. While I try to start each day with gratitude no matter what, I absolutely love the concept of an entire day set aside to specifically celebrate the things for which we are thankful. Through some incredibly difficult times filled with hardship and great losses over the last couple of years, I have genuinely learned not to take anything for granted. And to be healthy this Thanksgiving (I even get to run a 4 mile race tomorrow morning!) and get to spend the afternoon/evening enjoying delicious food with my family is something for which I am profoundly thankful. Whatever your plans, I hope you have a wonderful holiday and weekend full of family, friends, and joy.

And now, it's time once again for the annual sharing of my personal list of Black Friday/Small Business Saturday/Cyber Monday deals! In the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving, when I come across any seriously amazing deals and/or coupon codes, I record them. If any of the agencies I work with give me notice of secret coupon codes, I record those as well. Then I compile a list of favorites.  And for the past six years, I have shared this list with you. The full list - which has over 50 offers - is below.

I'll start off with a shameless plug for our card and art print shop Bubby and Bean Art. Today though Sunday 11/25, take 20% off your order with code THANKYOU18. This is a perfect time to stock up on your holiday cards (all of which are eco-friendly and individually made by hand). Thank you for your support of our little shop and all small businesses this holiday season!

And speaking of small businesses, although the list below is mainly for larger stores and brands, please check out your favorite independent shops over the next week, and visit Etsy. I know I say this every year, but many small businesses offer substantial discounts this week and weekend, but don't have the large advertising budgets of bigger companies. Supporting them can collectively make a big difference, and what's better than giving a quality gift made with love? (You can also check out this post from last year, where we featured 10 kids' gifts from companies who give back and make positive impacts on the world.)
