Save big on Black Friday

The day after Thanksgiving — Black Friday — is the biggest shopping day of the year. If you are looking for furniture, appliances and other items for your home, it's a great time to cash in on big savings.

To get the most out of Black Friday, prepare yourself with a shopping list and some research. Target a few items that you want and do price comparisons before Black Friday. Remember that stores are opening earlier and earlier for Black Friday — many of them at midnight or earlier.

We have some gathered some of the best deals for your home from Walmart, Best Buy and Big Lots.

Thanks for this! Tons of great deals! I hit up some of these places yesterday but I'm continuing my Black Friday shopping all weekend long!

Thanks for the heads up on these great sales! I live just a few miles away from each of these stores so I will be out in full force with my kids and husband on Black Friday. I am also in the market for a new laptop just like Katie. The HP laptop at Walmart is just what I need, and for only $279 it will make a nice early Christmas gift!
