While we may have moved away from shopping malls and toward online marketplaces, some things have remained the same. I am, of course, talking about Black Friday sales. Some say it’s the United State’s greatest cultural export since capitalism, others say it’s the bi-product of unfettered capitalism. I say it’s time to save MONEY!

MacBook Air computers are probably the most value-for-money product Apple makes. Buying an iPhone from 2020 is going to cost you more than this MacBook Air, and you’re only going to get 10% of the functionality! The biggest selling point, besides the price, is that this bad boy comes with the new M1 processor, which is absolutely unbelievable. Apple has once again made a major innovation in technology in an area that desperately needed it. Writing this actually sold me, I’m going to buy one right now.
edit: I bought it.
Thankfully, the price of AirPods is finally starting to descend. In fact, I have never seen any Apple products on sale until today, let alone for almost 20% off. AirPods, if you’ve been living under a rock, are the latest earbud technology dreamed up by the wizzes at Apple. If you own a iPhone and you don’t have AirPods, how are you even listening?

TVs seem to be evolving at an incredible rate, with upgraded specs coming out more and more frequently. What’s that called again, Moore’s law? Anyway, this Samsung Frame TV is so awesome. It’s razor-thin on your walls, with no indications that it’s a TV, allowing it to stay hidden when turned off. You can also program it to display perfect renders of art when you’re not watching 8-hour marathons of Stranger Things, hence the name “The Frame.” This amazing 4K TV is for sure the next step in display design, with Samsung quite literally thinking outside the box to create it.
I’ve owned these for years, so when I saw them on Amazon’s Epic Deals I got a rush of excitement. There’s no better person to hype up these headphones than me! They sound INCREDIBLE. The noise cancellation is so good that I can’t go back to normal headphones. I even use these sometimes without any sound, just the noise cancellation feature turned on, so the world goes completely silent. Seriously, $160 is the best price you’ll ever see for these technological marvels.

You can also remote view into your Echo Show and see the camera feed, allowing you to check on your pup (or husband) when you’re not at home to make sure they aren’t sprawled on the couch all day eating your leftovers.
Extend your wifi like a pro with this TP-Link high-range extender. Easily achieve speeds approaching 750Mbps and a range of 1200ft2, unheard of with other extenders.

It’s 2021, if you don’t have a dashcam in your car, you’re definitely reckless AF. Are you asking, “why do I need a dashcam!?” Well, how much time do you have to read my dissertation? Because I could go on for hours and hours about exactly why you need one. If you’ve ever been in an accident, you know what I’m talking about.

Remember Segway? Well, they’re back, and they’re designing e-scooters better than any other manufacturer.

Here is another one of the Epic Deal items that I already own: this electronic arch lighter. What is an arch lighter, you ask? Well, it’s a lighter that uses no fluid and can produce a “flame” in any conditions. How? With electricity, of course! It’s the size of a normal pen, and when it runs out of juice you just plug it in. I love having this because even though we occasionally have traditional lighters in the house, this one is ALWAYS ready to go in a pinch.
Edison bulbs are fantastic, mostly because they aren’t fluorescent and don’t constantly flicker and damage your eyes. These bad boys come in two temps, 5000K and 3000K, allowing you to choose between mood lighting and bright, energetic lighting. The other thing that really sells me on these is the look, they don’t appear like normal crappy lightbulbs. They look they were made by an artisan, giving your home a real rustic aesthetic. Receiving 12 of these bulbs for $35 is a steal!

This tub heats the water and allows you to wash Rover outside, eliminating the chance of any mishaps.
Strip LED lighting is perfect for your kids or the gamer in your house. The colors are totally customizable from the remote, allowing you to change the ambiance in the room at any given time. This roll is 65ft, meaning it will most likely wrap all the way around your room, or bed frame, with extra length to spare. It even functions exceptionally well as a TV edge light!
Let’s face it, the air quality in our homes isn’t necessarily as good as we think it is. Dust, smoke, pollen; so many things can stay stagnant in your air and cause problems with your lungs or sinuses.

It has a digital screen, allowing you to check the lifespan of your filter and get a reading on your current air quality.
