Black Friday Wishlist

Today is an exciting day for me because my mom and I are heading down to the US for the weekend to do some Black Friday shopping. We don't have Black Friday here, but we do have a comparable day for shopping, which is December 26th. We aren't going early enough to crash the doors at 6 am (or 3 am as I noticed on some advertisements!), but I still hope to find some deals and shop at some stores that we don't have here. In preparation, I've compiled a wishlist to keep myself on track and avoid any impulse spending "just because it's on sale".

Bench: Bed Bath and Beyond: $129

Mini: Charlotte Russe: $32.50

Cardigan: Old Navy: $39.50

Beanie: Forever 21, $6.80
  • Wine/eggplant coloured shift dress
  • Feminine blouses
  • Black sequin mini
  • Dark blue denim leggings
  • wool mini
  • Lace-up booties
  • Sweater dress
  • Fair isle knit sweater
  • Leopard print scarf
  • White wool beanie
  • Black ankle booties
  • Decor items for my newly painted office
  • Deacon's bench for my kitchen
I'm not under any illusion that I will find every item on my wishlist, but I find that if I don't make a list I will get off track and buy a bunch of random items that I really don't need. Do you make shopping wishlists? Does anyone have any Black Friday shopping tips to share?
