Today I wake up extremely grateful and blessed. Not too long ago I was working a corporate job that required me little to no time with my family during the holidays, often feeling overworked and too stressed out to ever truly enjoy the season! After college I decided to stay in the Carolinas, so when I was fortunate enough to make it back to Maryland to see my family for Thanksgiving and Christmas, we tried to cram every possible holiday tradition into a 12-18 hour period, leaving little to no time for sleep! Whether it was catching up over a warm meal or baking cookies with the sound of our favorite carols playing in the background, every minute was cherished. After losing my dad during this season a few years prior, time became more valuable, and I never wanted to take it for granted again.
Over the years my holiday routine has changed, but one thing remains the same: I still love Black Friday shopping! Once I was old enough to drive, my sister and I looked forward to planning our shopping agenda and stayed up until midnight to hit up our favorite sales. Working in retail after college often cut into my family time on Thanksgiving, requiring me to be at the mall well before the stores were open to the public. So needless to say, my thoughts on Black Friday shopping have changed quite a bit over the years. Retailers are now opening on Thanksgiving day, launching sales earlier in the week, and at this point you don’t even have to leave the comfort of your own couch to take advantage of the huge discounts! Nine times out of ten you’ll find me shopping online, so I was excited to hear that Sears had recently reinvented their holiday Wish Book for 2017, making it a one stop shop for hundreds of gift options for every family member, offering convenient access via mobile and online to help you find quality gifts. From holiday decorations, to top selling appliances and fashion favorites, their wide selection of items make it easy to hand select the perfect gift for everyone on your list.
