Black Friday, only a week away!

Every Mom should take note of Black Friday deals, whether online or off. Black Friday often offers such ridiculously great deals, it really pays to get up early and fight the crowd for the sales that allow you to buy more for Christmas.

It makes sense to check as many ads as possible and map out the best course of action. While store A may be offering great deals on electronics, store B might have a hard to beat deal on the season's hottest toys. Several places are advertising their Black Friday deals ahead of time so you can map it out yourself for the bargains that fit your needs the best.

Some people like to plan their sales with family or friends and make a special day of it. Getting up early for a light breakfast and a big pot of coffee is important to keep your stamina going for a long day of shopping. My friends make an annual tradition of hitting certain stores first, sometimes branching out and meeting back up afterward at a different store.

A great idea for a quick breakfast on Black Friday is a breakfast casserole. You can prep this the night before and throw it in the oven first thing in the morning. No muss, no fuss. Tear up pieces of bread, stale is fine, and fill the bottom inch or so of a casserole dish. I spray mine with butter flavored cooking spray first. Throw in a layer of each of hash browns, chopped sausage or ham, and a little bit of diced onion. Cover it with four eggs, lightly scrambled, and cover that with a layer of cheddar cheese. Let the eggs soak in overnight, it really makes a difference! In the morning, pop it in the oven at 350 for about 20 minutes or so, until the eggs seem set. Yummy! has coupons and sale ads for many major stores, what an invaluable service! Everything you need right there on one site! I looked around and found so many bargains, it was hard to peel myself away! Just keep your eyes open, and you're sure to find many great deals this holiday season!
