Weekly Roundup: Black Friday, Giveaways and My Trip to Boston

by Kristina on November 23, 2012 · 2 comments

Happy Friday Dinks.  I hope that you are all enjoying your Black Friday shopping and getting ready for Cyber Monday shopping deals.

I would love to know why you love shopping on Black Friday, is it the thrill of getting a good deal or is it because you like getting your Christmas shopping out of the way before December 1?

I am not partaking in the Black Friday festivities this year but I am going to Boston next weekend.  Boston has always been on my list of places to go and I am very excited that next weekend I will be spending 3 days in Bean Town.

For all of my Dink friends who live in Boston or who have ever been to Boston please tell me where I should go, what I should see, and where I should eat.  I am open to and I appreciate all suggestions.

Have a great weekend and enjoy these posts from our favourite personal finance bloggers:

Thanks for the mention Kristina!

For Black Friday shopping, my wife and I did participate this year. We actually only got stuff for ourselves, not for others :0 We got two luggage sets at Macy’s for our cruise in February, then we went to Home Depot and got a fiberglass stepladder (only $17! I needed one for electrical work I’m doing on our new house), two awesome cube shelves with baskets included (only $30 each, we spent a lot more on our ikea shelf last year and we needed this for our office), and a $5 dog food mat to keep the floor clean. Also went to Staples and got Quickbooks FREE (after I fill out that $90 rebate…) and an external hard drive.

Essentially why I went out and got these deals is because it’s stuff that we needed and with doorbuster deals we won’t get it any cheaper. Quickbooks I wanted for a while now to learn so that I can do some freelance work with it since I already do Excel freelance work and most small businesses use Quickbooks.

Anyway, I hope you have a great weekend!

Thanks for including us here Kristina and hope you had an awesome Thanksgiving!

For Boston, go to Faneuil Hall and walk the streets if the weather is nice enough. Very fun area…and Mike’s is awesome for cannolis and right nearby there.
