To Black Frid​ay and Beyond

This is not a drill. Black Friday has come back around, and we’re checking our lists to make sure we’re taking advantage of all of the best deals available. As college students, Black Friday and Cyber Monday are great ways to replenish the essentials, buy Christmas gifts for friends and family, and buy that coat you just didn’t have the guts to splurge on. Most Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales don’t announce until the day of or the night before, but we’ve done our research and found the best places to shop.

We know being a college student can be expensive, so we’ve also included ways to save after the holidays are over towards the end of this post.
