I've never shopped Black Friday before, due to all money going to Medical. Did it! Got one deal I'm very happy about, will share later.

I wrote a year's list of all of the needs/wants I would like to use, prioritized them. I went to each of those sites to see what their Black Fri deals were for 2018, so I can buy in bulk a year's worth of products on BF & Amazon Prime Day. Changing to buy most items in July/Amazon & November/Blk Fri.

Projecting a budget to include "wants" again. Here's my expensive products that are only on sale on Black Friday:

1). Hairprint for dark hair only- a restorer not a dye, 25% off, only time I've ever seen it.
2). Perfect Supplements-Grass-Fed Collagen and vitamins., 35% off.
3.) FlavaNaturals-Cocoa as a high antioxidant medicine for my DH's heart, best tasting chocolate bars I've ever had in a 5 flavored "Library Book" pack, great for gifts. Buy 2/one free.
4). Macy's-for Waterford Crystal was 80% off. Great for wedding gifts.
5). Bend Soap Company-Goat Milk no chemical/additives Bar Soap that I use for my hair, 20% off.

Approx projected savings in a year would be above all coupons, codes and sales I already use.
Save $2,000-$3,000/yr with 25%discount +10% cashback=35%+, not including projected gas and time. Enough to add wants back in on same income.
