Five on Friday - November 23, 2017

Happy Day After Thanksgiving - better known as Black Friday!  Will you be out and about shopping today?  I'll be out there with my mom and daughter-in-law.  It's a fun day for us to spend together.  Hopefully by the end of the day I'll have some presents purchased and I can start wrapping by the end of the weekend.

Before we head out into the craziness, here's my five for today ~

1.  Ebates
Do you plan on doing any online shopping this holiday season?  Are you signed up for Ebates??  If not, click HERE and get started earning cash back.  It is so simple and the rewards are real.  My Ebates check last quarter was $159.08.  That's free money folks!!  Start earning yours today.

Are you a fan of the hit TV show Nashville?  Eric and I hadn't seen a single episode up until about a month ago.  We are now about to finish season 5.  Yes, we are binge-watchers!  Oh my gosh we love the show!  Well, if you're a fan too did you know there is a soundtrack with the Greatest Hits from Seasons 1-5.  Could be a great present for that Nashville fan in your life!  Click HERE to purchase.

3.  New Item on White Castle Menu
If you find yourself going to the drive through during this busy season, you might want to check out the new item on White Castle's menu - the Cheddar & Apple Butter Turkey Slider.  This baby features all-natural white meat turkey burger patty topped with smoked cheddar and cinnamon apple butter served on a slider bun.  Might have to give this a try.

4.  Darkest Hour
I'm pretty confident if Eric gets to pick our movie this week, it's going to be Darkest Hour.  Here's what Rotten Tomatoes has to says about it, "During the early days of World War II, with the fall of France imminent, Britain faces its darkest hour as the threat of invasion looms. As the seemingly unstoppable Nazi forces advance, and with the Allied army cornered on the beaches of Dunkirk, the fate of Western Europe hangs on the leadership of the newly-appointed British Prime Minister Winston Churchill (Academy Award nominee Gary Oldman). While maneuvering his political rivals, he must confront the ultimate choice: negotiate with Hitler and save the British people at a terrible cost or rally the nation and fight on against incredible odds. Directed by Joe Wright, DARKEST HOUR is the dramatic and inspiring story of four weeks in 1940 during which Churchill's courage to lead changed the course of world history."

5.  Be nice out there today.....

Okay guys -- wish me luck finding the perfect gifts for my family and friends today!  Hope you have a wonderful weekend and I'll see you back soon.

  1. Good luck! We went last night as I have to work today and we may go tonight too, haven't fully decided yet!

  2. That meme is perfect. Yeah, I am not crazy about black friday. I much prefer small business Saturday and giving my money to the small businesses.

  3. Yes, Ebates is SO good to use when shopping online. I got some shopping done online yesterday but I did finish up my nieces and nephew today in stores so that's good!


  4. Hey Penny,

    I hope you had a wonderful long weekend and Thanksgiving. :)
    I have a question for you, being the Canadian that's never tried White Castle. Are their burgers really all they're cracked up to be?

    I was debating on signing up for Ebates but frankly I don't buy a whole lot online, unless from Amazon. This year instead of gift cards for the nieces and nephew, we'll be doing cash.

    Have a great week, Penny! :)
