Well Black Friday might be coming early this year, considering all of the incredible sales going on this weekend! Here are some of our favorites, plus a sneak peak at the Black Friday ads: (If you’re looking for Target’s Black Friday sales, Stephanie did a great round-up here.):

Kohl’s Black Friday ads, opening at 3 a.m.:
I always find some of the best Black Friday deals at Kohl’s, which is actually where my beloved Kitchenaid mixer came from. (Thanks, mom!) This year they have an impressive collection, including their typical $10 Kohl’s Cash for every $50 you spend, but it might have to be your first stop on your Black Friday journey, considering Kohl’s is opening at 3 a.m. and the best sales are only until 11 a.m.
You can get a $100 Black and Decker toaster oven or microwave for only $49.99.
These iPod/iPod speakers, alarm clocks and docking stations are definitely on quite a few wish lists this year, and you can find an iHome clock radio for as low as $39.99.
Their entire line of Food Network kitchen appliances are on sale BIG for you early birds, like this bread maker or 4-in-1 nonstick grill, which is reduced from $139.99 to $59.99.
