I need a couple iPhones for my kids.  That is the Big Hope.  Already shopping.  I am also in the market for a big tv or a projector.  Probably not going to happen this year as the room is not ready and I'm just beginning to research projectors.

 

I'm planning to get my kids bedding, pillows, and robes from MyPillow®: Official MyPillow Site.  I am not one to spend a lot on any of these things, but I know SO MANY PEOPLE who have indulged themselves and not a single one eith buyer's remorse.

I got my husband one last year and he loves it. That might be another good idea for my kids. They need new pillows anyway. I've not tried the bedding, I forget they have that. I may look into that as well. Thanks!

Apple Watch. After a few days at my new job I’ve determined that I need one! LOL. I don’t need the latest and greatest so hoping for a good deal on the SE.

I will be getting both my 2 oldest grandson's a Switch (yes, one each, even though they live together. In all the ideas I came up with, this one works out the best :)). Anyway, I know better than to expect a discount on the console itself, but I'm hoping for a decent bundle. In fact, I'm hoping (but not expecting) for 2 different bundles. Then I'll get them 1 extra game a piece, so I'm hoping for good deals on the games.

Mom is wanting a new TV for her living/sitting room.  Not a large room, so maybe a small smart TV.  Otherwise, I usually don't get big ticket items. 

I'm just excited for all of the small stuff (socks, pj's etc.)

I also wouldn’t mind some new cookware. Not a must but if the price is right and the assortment is right I’ll get one.

Nice thread count sheets for the house and lego for me. If one of the board games I’m interested in goes a good sale then I’ll grab that too.

Honestly, this is probably the first year that I just don't have any huge want/needs for Black Friday.  The budget seems like it is going to be slimmer than usual so we are cutting back on the amount we spend on everyone.

I would like to see some gift cards marked down.  I know I can go to Target and use my Red Card to get 5% off of a few of them and I also know that Sam's Club has many gift cards cheaper than regular price.  But, I would love to save 10% off a few gift cards, specifically Texas Road House and Starbucks gift cards since I will be getting those for our sons and their wives.  My 15 year old daughter will probably also get a few Starbucks gift cards as well.

My daughter lost about 40 pounds this year so she will need some new sweaters and long sleeved clothing.  We live in a milder climate so she can get by with some of her stuff from last year (they will be a little big but will do until Christmas).  We don't usually get the colder weather until January anyway.  I'm hoping Kohl's has some good deals on sweaters like they did last year.  The only other thing she has asked for are a pair of doc martins and a pair of birkenstocks (and I don't think those ever really go on sale).

I do hope I can find some ceramic bakeware and maybe a chopper.  I've already told my husband that those are the two things I really would like this year.  Yes, I am pretty easy to make happy..lol.  Just give me stuff for my kitchen. :)

I'm hoping Walmart has the gift card deal going when you upgrade or add a line. Wanting to upgrade my daughter's iPhone for Christmas. Also deals on an iPad through Verizon for my youngest daughter. We are thinking of adding my son to our plan as well so deals on Samsung phones. Oldest daughter is wanting a laptop or all in one computer so deals on those. Looking for deals on 50cc dirt bike for my son. Hoverboard, clothes, shoes, and toys for my 4 year old son.

It’s not something I usually see a sale on, and I generally always have it purchased well before Black Friday, but with things being extra tight this year I would love to get a deal on the Breyer 2021 Holiday Horse. I get the holiday horse for my mom every year for her birthday, which is the first week of December. The holiday horses are always very pretty.

Hoping for a good deal on the Nintendo Switch. Was thinking about getting one last year, but there was no deals on them. Got a new phone last month, hoping for a deal on the air buds.

You may want to check the warranty and installation specifications of your roofing material.  Generally, the warranty does not go into effect until after some number of days at a certain temperature.  If you will not be at that temperature again this year, you will need to used an 'enhanced' installation technique to activate the warranty.  Usually that means more nails, more time, and more installation cost. 

 

When I had my roof done, I got a late start and took more time than expected to select a roofer.  We ended up delaying installation until May.

 

Good luck!

The 6-series is supposed to be spectacular...

 

Best 75-inch TVs of 2021 | Tom's Guide (tomsguide.com)

 

The big-screened TCL 6-Series Roku TV (75R635) offers enormous value for it's affordable price, giving you a premium 75-inch picture and a great smart TV experience for much less than the competition. Just like the more expensive Samsung Neo QLED, the R635 delivers amazing quality with mini-LED backlighting in addition to QLED – technology that earned it a 2021 Tom's Guide Award for best TV innovation. The result is impressive color and brightness, with some of the best HDR performance we've seen on anything this side of an OLED display.
 
But TCL keeps delivering more, like THX Certified Game Mode, which makes the 6-Series one of the best gaming TVs available, even for new consoles like the PS5 and the Xbox Series X. From the design's smart touches, like cable management in the stand, to the always-solid Roku TV platform, the TCL 6-Series 75R635 is the best 75-inch TV value, and it's not even close.
 
 
FOR
Excellent picture with QLED-boosted color and mini-LED backlight
Great gaming performance
Roku TV offers a huge app selection and easy interface
Improved Roku remote
 
AGAINST
Sound is a little weak
Roku is missing some of the latest apps

 

TCL 6-Series Roku TV (R635) review: Verdict
For a set that's defined as much by it's value as it's features and picture quality, the TCL 6-Series Roku TV (R635) is one of the best sets on the market. The 6-Series has a well-earned reputation for premium quality at affordable prices, but the combination of QLED enhancement, mini-LED backlighting and a solid smart TV experience make it the clear winner among TVs that sell for under $1,000.
 
Even among past top picks, like the Vizio M-Series Quantum (M658-G1) and the 2019 TCL 6-Series (R625), the new R635 is the best value we've seen for the money, delivering excellent picture quality and plenty of features, including supporting next-generation game consoles. The whole package is enough to make the TCL 6-Series Roku TV (R635) one of the best TVs of 2020.

I love the two 55 TCL I ordered last year and with the 65 on the brink I want to upgrade. For the price this is the line I would love to get and now that the quality is in line for the bigger models I am all in. Come on Santa and drop that TV off this year
