The best Black Friday deals you can get from your couch without even getting dressed

Thanksgiving is a great, relaxing holiday filled with family bonding, delicious comfort food, and long movie marathons. Or, for those of us who don’t live in a Diane Keaton movie, it’s absolutely terrible. Which is why Black Friday deals are such a welcome distraction. Seriously, retail therapy can cure close to anything, including stressful Thanksgiving family time.

Think about it: you’re guilted into going home and spending time with people you aren’t really sure you like anymore after so many years in therapy, and you basically spend two whole days (because you have to fucking travel, too) hoping the wine keeps flowing and you’ll get a chance to sneak out into the garage and smoke a cigarette. It’s the worst. And there aren’t even any presents involved.

BUT! After you suffer (or thoroughly enjoy, whatever, lucky you) through the holiday, you can buy things for yourself, because you deserve it. And it is Black Friday after all. But you don’t have to act like an animal and push through crowds at the mall to get all the deals. There are plenty of online sales to take advantage of.

Go hit up your parent’s liquor cabinet, settle in with some leftovers, and start clicking on some some these Black Friday deals.
