I’m not a huge shopper and Black Friday is not my Super Bowl.
My idea of a good Black Friday is never leaving the house (it’s basically my dream come true that most Black Friday shopping is now online) and spending very little time shopping. It’s super easy to feel overwhelmed by all the deals or feel a false urgency to spend money as quickly as you can.
On the other hand, I love a good deal, so if there are things you’ve been eyeing already, this is a great time to purchase those items at the lowest price of the year and then get back to my jigsaw puzzles.
These are the products I get asked about the most and that I love and use myself.
Have a wonderful day, whether you do any shopping or not!
The Black Friday Sales I’m Excited About
SAVVY READING & SAVVY MATH
You’ve probably heard me talk about Savvy a million times but truly there is nothing I’m more passionate about. This real-time reading or math coaching for readers 4-14 has been incredibly amazing both for my own girls and thousands of other readers who have joined since we launched. All the details about Savvy here, and through Monday night, you can get $25 off every month of any subscription with the code BLACKFRIDAY2023. I promise, nothing you’ll buy this weekend will pay off for your kids more than helping than become confident and capable readers or feel like math rock stars.
I started using this eyelash serum a couple of years ago and I’m totally impressed by it. My eyelashes look better than they EVER have – thicker, longer, and stronger. I use the eyelash serum in the morning after I wash my face but before I put on my makeup. Right now, the whole site is on sale AND you can stack it with my code JANSSEN for an additional 20% so it’s the BEST price you’ll basically ever see on this.
These are my most worn shoes in the winter – I bought them with my birthday money over two years ago and they still look basically brand new even after two years of constant wear. They’re easy to dress up or down and really comfy after a couple of wears. They’re 30% off right now!
I first started using this BB cream about four years ago and I’ve never gone back to anything else – I love that you all love it as much as I do. It goes on so smoothly and hits that perfect combination of making your skin look amazing without looking or feeling like you’re wearing a bunch of foundation. I use the color Awaken and I always have a second tube in my drawer so that I don’t ever run out. Use the code BF23 for their Black Friday sale!
I have seen these kitchen towels alllllll over Instagram for the past couple of years and I finally ordered some. They live up to the hype! They’re the only towels I want to use now in the kitchen and they have such fun patterns that they make me happy every time I see them. You can use the code JANSSEN15 for 15% off on TOP of their 20% off Black Friday sale!
I discovered MixHers last year and my current favorite is the HerGreens sticks. They taste delicious and it’s the easiest way for me to get my vitamins in – I usually just stir it into a glass of cold water between breakfast and lunch and it feels like a nice little refreshing treat. My discount code is JANSSENBRADSHAW which this weekend is good for 30% off.
We’ve been Bookroo subscribers for years and it just keeps getting better. They have four monthly book box options – the board book box comes with three books a month, while all the other options have two books per month: the picture book box, the junior chapter book box for readers about 7-10 and the middle grade chapter book box for readers about 9-12. And for all the subscriptions except the middle grade box, they do their own editions so they form a bookshelf rainbow with the spines, which I LOVE. Use the code BF2023 for 25% off your first 3-, 6-, or 12-month subscription to any new club!
I took this bag EVERYWHERE in Japan and Paris – I used it every single day – and it really is a perfect summer bag. Hands-free, just big enough for the essentials (wallet, Kindle, phone, lip gloss, a small snack), and looks good with everything. The whole site is on sale with the code BlackFriday30.
