I know I promised a Frugal Fridays post for today - my Make It Meatless (Part 2) post, to be specific! But. . . err. . . Black Friday. . . shopping. . . No one's surprised, right?
Instead, here are three simple tips for keeping (reasonably) frugal on the biggest shopping weekend of the year:
1. If it's not on sale, don't buy it!! (This is a weekend for sales - regular pricing need not apply!)
2. If you don't need it, don't buy it!! (I got car seats - yay! I passed on the great slow cooker deal b/c I have one - yay for restraint!)
3. If it's an online purchase, don't forget to use your Ebates!! (lots of bonus cash back to be had this weekend)
