Happy purple Monday, yellow Tuesday, shimmering emerald Wednesday and, well, I think you get the idea.
Black Friday is coming! It's a great chance to save money but also rife with confusion, gimmicks and incentives that leave you buying things you don't even want.
Gah. Enough of all that.
Travel Resources and Things I Love
I've done the legwork for you and gathered some of the best deals I've found in travel from companies and travel resources I actually use.
Some offers have started already but others don't open until the day itself (November 29th.) So bookmark this blog post and check back again: if I find anything good, I'll put it here.
Disclosure - if you buy through some of these links then I may earn a small commission at no cost to you. Not all of the links, mind! I'm only sharing information that seems decent, whether or not any commission is involved!
Now is a great time to look out for the travel gear you need for the year ahead. Take a quick run through these essential packing lists to make sure you're prepared.
Amazon offer many Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals. I've gathered together the travel products I'd recommend in our Inside the Travel Lab Shop on one page.
Ever since I started putting myself into photos this year, I've had questions about where my clothes are from. Almost without exception, they're from Bravissimo. And, no, no disclosure needed! I just love the fit!
I know I'm never quite ready but THIS is the time to shop for gifts for people!
If you're shopping for a traveller in your life, then check out our gift guides. All have links to sites where you can shop. Buy on Friday or Monday to get the best deal.
