We all know the drill by now, we’re only a few weeks away from the start of the holiday shopping season which is marked by the day after Thanksgiving…Black Friday. Quickly following Black Friday comes Cyber Monday – the online shopping version of Black Friday and before all of that, you’ve got Singles Day. Got it? Good. In other words, it’s sale madness all weekend long and you can start to expect to see ads from stores all over the US and the rest of the world marking ‘presales’ and getting you all excited for the bargains you’ll be able to grab. Problem is, we all often buy things we don’t need just because the items are on sale, but what if we told you that you could spend $11.11 and avoid everything else?
How do you shop on Black Friday?
We’re sure you’ve probably heard horror stories of people getting trampled, battered, and bruised during this mad dash to snag deeply discounted doorbuster items. After all, waking up at the crack of dawn and fighting a stranger at your local Best Buy is what Black Friday is all about, right? Well, that’s not as true as it used to be. Online shopping has grown year over year — especially as free shipping has become the standard — online Black Friday shopping has grown right along with it.
Although there are still quite a few retailers offering special in-store discounts, the majority of the sales will also be available online this year. This shift to an ecommerce model is great for anyone who enjoys browsing great deals in their pajamas, but it also creates an overwhelming scope of savings to sift through. More importantly, you’ll most likely find yourself browsing website after website, of things you don’t really need but rather want to buy, just because the item is on sale.
But! What if we told you we could help you avoid doing this and all you’d need to do is spend $11.11 and remember which sites take up most of your time and which sites you would like to avoid during the sales period, it would be worth it right?
So here’s how to….
Curb Overspending on Black Friday
In order to make the above happen, you’re going to need to spend that $11.11 to help curb your overspending once and for all – on BlockSite.
By buying an annual subscription on BlockSite Extension premium over the holiday sales, you’ll gain access to all of the usual features available plus, uninstall protection, redirects and lots more.
BlockSite will enable you to increase your productivity, stay focused and avoid spending money on unnecessary things. You’ll have more time to focus on things that really matter over the holiday season and you’ll save money. We often find ourselves browsing shopping sites for hours upon hours and end up wasting time on the Internet with no real purpose or intention when we could have been spending time doing other things that actually help to improve our lives.
Take advantage of Black Friday
This year, we urge you to take total advantage of Black Friday and be thankful for the things that really matter this Thanksgiving. Spending time with family, focusing on mindfulness and taking a bit of a digital detox will help center you and help you understand that we often fall victim to trends that urge us to spend money, instead of getting into the holiday spirit for the more important things in life!
