Black Friday is a migical time of year! Every November my wife spends days plotting her strategy out to get the best deals on stuff we need and some we just plain want. It may mean standing in line freezing our butts of and listening to some idiots jabber on about who know what for a couple of hours, but it has become a right of passage for us, and we love the challange.
This year there’s a lot of things we would like to get, but i thought I’d pass on this tidbit to my fellow LJ’s. I actually bought one of these two years ago and am glad I did. It’s big (16 gallons), powerful (5 hp), Cheap ($27.49 is 75% off the regular price) and if you add a hepa filter it can be one of the most useful tools in the workshop for keeping things clean and the air fresh.
Here’s the thing, it’s going to be on sale at Menards (if you have one near you) and you’d better be there at least an hour before they open to get colse enough to the front of the line and then make a dash right toward wherever in the store it will be because they will go fast. They also have some other deals worth a look if you’re going to be there anyway, like a Performax Oscillating Multi-tool for $30 (that’s $70 off).
Maybe you’d rather pay full price and not get in line at 4 in the morning. Me, I like to get a good deal.
Oh, and you can also check out a lot of other store’s black friday ads at Blackfriday.info
Pass it on!
