I’m usually home this weekend, in the USA, with my family, celebrating a very special holiday on American soil. This is the holiday in which we salute the men and women in our armed forces. On this day we honour those who have fallen and of course continue to honor those in the forces today. Let us never forget what this weekend really stands for. Saying that, it is also a weekend where retail stores literally chop prices on products in half. America shops this weekend. It’s a three day weekend where we BBQ, spend time with our family and, well, hit the shops. Only in recent years, it’s less about hitting the shops and more about taking advantage of the big sales online. I certainly have, in years’ past. I could always be found on this day, the Saturday before Memorial Day, doing a big early morning shop to catch the sales and have everything delivered before I had to return to London. It was a sprint, not a marathon! Although I’m pretty sure I had swollen wrists and fingers by the end of it. I was shopping tornado.
As I’m so far away this year, I’m doing my shopping solo (mom would usually be at the same table as me – we’d sit at the kitchen table and I’d ask her “does this work, “do you like this,” “is this a good deal?”).But, I thought I’d do something a little different and share my shop with all of you. I’m ordering things to be waiting for me when I finally can get home again. But, for now, I thought I’d share all the deals I found along the way. Please let me be clear. I am no madame moneybucks. So I have not bought all that I’m featuring. Just delivering the goods discovered, and I’ve also kept those goods to size inclusive retailers, as much as I possibly could! Also, please note there are affiliate links in this post! Hope I can help find you some good bargains. It’s a minefield out there online at the moment!
Additional note: While most sales are US only, many of these retailers ship overseas! So always worth checking out if you have a US mailing address or not!
