Black Friday is great for holiday gifts at a discount. This we know. But have you considered how you can use the great discounts being offered EVERYWHERE to give your home a lift? We have. And we're not alone.
"Okay, so purchases for the home might not be the sexiest things to buy during this monster shopping season. But you could potentially save hundreds on some big ticket items, including vacuums, washing machines, power tools, and kitchen appliances," said dealnews. "And as with many items on Black Friday, they see their best prices of the year during this time." dealnews recommends Walmart's Dyson vacuum for $199 (usually at least $299) and Pyrex cookware that will be priced at just $10 for multi-piece sets.

Electronics are the easy place to start on Black Friday, and, especially, flat screen TVs, which are a top seller during this period. If you still have an old-style TV that takes up a ton of space, now's the time to get the sleek look a flat screen can provide. Especially when you can get a 50-inch Panasonic TV for $199.99 at Best Buy, which Huffington Post says "is being regarded as THE Black Friday deal of the season."
"This year, "the price on TVs is falling through the floor," Brad Wilson, founder of Brad's Deals told them. "He describes Best Buy's $899.99 deal on a Samsung 55-inch TV as "by far the lowest" price he's ever seen for that product. (The TV is normally $1,399.99, for reference).

Huffington Post cautions shoppers to stay away from buying linens on Black Friday, saying, "When people are prepping their homes for holiday visitors, there isn't much of an incentive for retailers to discount linens. However, during the January "white sales," sheets, towels, blankets, bath and bed accessories go on major markdown. You're better off using your Black Friday cash for other housewares."
But, if you can make your way to the spot in Walmart where they set out what we assume are VERY limited quantities of 850-thread count, hotel-like sheet sets for just $25 on Black Friday, buy them. Buy as many as you can and run like the wind. Trust us.
