It’s another chilly day here in Central Ontario and supposedly we are in for some major snow over this weekend! Shaun’s heading down to his girlfriend’s for the weekend I think, since she’s been coming up here for the past few weeks, and so as soon as he leaves, Ruthie’s going shopping! I was going to go today but decided I’d wait until tomorrow until the crowds settle down a bit.
For today, I’m all rested up after my acupuncture treatment this morning. My back and shoulders are all ready now for another few weeks of work.
There are so many deals today that I’m going to do this “roundup style” for you, so that you can pick and choose what you need for your business, if anything. I know that if you’re anything like me, you’ve probably bought a lot more stuff this year than you’ve used so I’m going to share my standard note on buying more stuff. Don’t do it if you don’t need it!
My new philosophy is that if it’s not something I’m going to use in the current quarter, I don’t need to spend the money on it at this time. So for stuff that’s on sale this weekend, if I’m not going to use it either in December or Q1 of the new year, then it can wait until I’m ready for it. And I’d love to see you get in that mindset too.
Will it hurt my bottom line where affiliate commissions are concerned? Probably. But, I’d rather you only buy what you need than to stockpile all kinds of stuff that ends up being a waste of money and forgo the commissions than tell you to buy everything in sight just so I can pad my bank account. That’s not the way I roll and I couldn’t live with myself if I ever got desperate enough to do that.
So, with that in mind, here’s your Black Friday Roundup and my top picks of all the deals.
Ruthie’s Top Black Friday Picks
Pick #1 – No Spend Black Friday from Lynette and Friends – I’m involved in this awesome giveaway that’s more like a bundle sale for the third year in a row.

My new product is a set of Floral Coloring Calendars, and Lynette has created a brand new Mandala Maker for us that I can’t wait to play with! Plus there are goodies from most of your favorite content providers and some courses and tools as well.
Pick #2 – Piggy Makes Bank’s Crazy Black Friday Sale! If you’ve been around for any length of time here, you’ll know that I absolutely love the content that Tracy and Susanne put out every month.

Their crazy Black Friday sale is a deal like I’ve never seen before! From today through Monday, November 29, you can get ALL THREE MEMBERSHIPS for only $47/month.
Pick #3 – Tools for Motivation Black Friday Retirement Sale – I love Tools for Motivation content because you can do so much with it when it comes to creating low content products.
