If you're like me and you love Black Friday prices but hate the crowds, I have good news for you. Stores are offering online sales that are just as juicy as some of the door-buster deals you'll find this Friday -- only you don't have to bust through any doors to get them! Just stay in your PJs, dodge the masses and save the tug-of-war and tackling for backyard football with the family!
Just to give you an idea of the kinds of pre-Black Friday sales going on right now, here are a few of my favorite things!

By now you've probably heard about Target's Baby Sale. It's the biggest baby sale of the year, and it's Target, so everyone's talking about it. On the odd chance this announcement failed to reach you, today is your last chance to save big on everything for your little ones!
The sale is both in stores and online and it ends tomorrow. The great thing about this baby sale is that it covers everything from baby essentials like diapers and wipes to all the extras like clothes, car seats and cribs. So even if you have a tendency to over-shop (an easy thing to do at Target), you don't have to feel bad about stocking up because all the supplies you would normally need are on sale as well! Plus, spend $50 on sale items and get free shipping! For once it makes sense to shop to much as Target!
Whether you're an expecting mom in need of new gear and nursery items, or you're already a parent who just wants to save some cash on essentials, here are some of my favorite sale items.
