Favorite Christmas Finds and Deals

As you know, I love Black Friday Shopping! My favorite part is finding deals on items I can use all throughout the year. I enjoy pouring over the ads on Thanksgiving – deciding which places are a must! This year was no different!

This year, there was ONE ad I was eagerly rummaging through the pile for. The Younkers ad! Why?? They have amazing, kid-friendly kitchen appliances that get my daughter excited for meals! The best part, each item was under $10!!

Since these precious items are door buster deals and we wait until after stores have already been open before venturing out – there is always a good chance I will miss out. While I hate the idea of missing out on these kitchen gadgets, sometimes it happens. Of course, I always cross my fingers and hope I am luckily enough to find a hidden stash.

My mom is my secret weapon! That lady could find the needle in the haystack, if you ask her! Honestly, she has secret ninja shopping skills like no one I have ever seen.

So, in 2014, we went into Younkers. Hoping to find the Mickey Mouse Waffle Maker, which was a $9.99 door buster deal. Of course the designated table was empty by the time we arrived. So my mom went on a hunt through the store, with one goal in mind!


I had my toddler sized waffle maker! I love it! It makes breakfast quick and easy! My daughter requests waffles often in our house!


This Black Friday, I wanted to add to my collection. The Door Buster – a FROZEN Waffle Maker! If you think Mickey is hard to get, he has nothing on a waffle maker in the shape of a snowflake!! I knew arriving almost 5 hours after the doors opened, most likely meant I would have to “Let It Go.”

Enter my mother!

While the snowflake waffle maker was in fact gone, leave it to my mother to find something better! A waffle maker in the shape of Olaf for $9.97! It wasn’t in the ad. Could that price even be right!? I mean, its way better than a snowflake! Next to that, a Mickey Mouse Cake Pop Maker for $4.99!


I love my kid-friendly kitchen gadgets and my daughter can wait to try them out!
