Thankful Thrifty Thoughts

This Thanksgiving, Random is involved in the traditions. He has offered to plan and cook with me. Not only are we working on our Thanksgiving meal together, he's involved in the other tradition. The one where normal people lose their minds and camp out on concrete sidewalks to save some bucks. Where unmade-up women leave their homes while it is still dark out to purchase gifts at unbelievable low prices. The one where people in my area have been known to freeze for hours waiting in line to shop.

Black Friday Sales

Random is already a thrift disciple. Not only is he skilled at not spending his own money, when it comes to sales,  he is a little more high tech than I. He has an application on his iPod called free app of the day. Each day, he is offered free iPod apps that normally cost between 99 cents and $10. 

One of his newer apps can be really beneficial to the psychos bargain hunters like myself. He has an application called 86 in 1 utilities. It usually costs 99 cents, but he downloaded it for free. Out of the 86 apps, it contains a very important one. 

The Black Friday Sales App 

This Black Friday sales app is constantly being updated. It will let you know: when prices change, if new deals are added or if some deals are sold out. It will show you where to get the best price on almost anything. Something near and dear to my heart, it has coupon codes for online shoppers. There is no reason I should not be aware of any deals this year, thanks to my little techie.

As you can see, this app, is for serious shoppers
Random's best deal found on this app so far; a $20 iPod charging kit for $0.89. It looks like Random may be getting one of these from Amazon for Christmas. SHHH don't tell him. Thanks for the tip!

Are you a high tech thrifter like this guy?

Happy Thanksgiving!
