    I’ve bought a few things that I was going to buy anyway so waited until Black Friday.  I wanted some gorgeous Liz Earle stuff for me and others, I got some good bargains.   I checked the prices, as I usually do, before buying anything.  

    I’ve been inundated with emails from just about every firm I’ve bought things from online over the last year.  Most are offering 30% off a lot of their stock.

    I had 2 items in my Amazon list for months, price rarely dropped, dropped Black Friday, found one of the items cheaper on Argos, I thought I would wait thinking yeah right, it will drop again no doubt after Black Friday.  

    Looked again today and gone back up, with Aregos being £15 more!

    Guess Black Friday deal was real.

    On the plus side, I did get 50% off 4 protein powders (checked other sites for same product), but left it a bit late as the 2.2kg most were out the stock, settled for 4 900g instead.
