1. Stasher Bags: Up to 30% Off Sitewide and Free Shipping Over $40

We wholeheartedly believe in these bags.

Stasher bags’ goal is to help save the planet by eliminating single-use plastic waste. And it makes us very unhappy every time we’ve had to use a Ziploc bag for something like marinating shrimp for a few hours. What a waste.

Stasher bags are made from platinum-grade silicone (which is a grade of the material even higher than food grade, made from silica (sand) and carbon, not from plastic) and offer many different size bags, which we love.

Get Deeply Discounted Stasher Bags Right Now!

Use them to store liquids, food, tech chords (like headphones and chargers), art supplies, and whatever else you dream of.

If you have anything small – like a bag of M&Ms or a bunch of paperclips (because we all know storage bags aren’t only for food) you can use the pocket-size bag. Or if you have something bigger, like protein to marinate, use a large, half-gallon bag.

We bought a bundle of 7 bags and cashed in on their 30% off and free shipping over $40 online deal. We know we’ll have these for years. They’re easily one of our favorite products on the market, of any category for anything.

Stasher bags are:

  • Microwave safe (and safe up to 400 degrees, even in a boiling pot of water)
  • Dishwasher safe
  • Freezer safe
  • Free of BPA, BPS, lead, latex, and phthalates
  • Food safe and approved by even the harshest of regulations, from the US to European food standards
  • Easy to dry

They donate 1% of their proceeds to non-profits making a big impact on the Earth, like Surfrider Foundation. It is also a female-founded business.

**Be sure to check out the Bundle Starter Kit with 7 pieces if you’re unsure what to get and the Half Gallon Bag.

4. Etsy: Up to 60% Off During

Support truly small shops and artists when you shop on Etsy. Some shops offer up to 60% savings, others 20%, and some in between.

It’s our absolute favorite place to get friends and family personalized gifts. Like this custom welcome mat (because we’ve all been taking more walks this year to get out of the house, which inevitably dirty our shoes more, right?) or custom jewelry. (Everyone loves to see their name, especially in metal.) We even gifted custom baby blocks to a friend recently. Know a stylish friend who wants to add glitz to a face mask? Buy her a mask chain gift.

The possibilities on Etsy are endless, so head on over to see how deep the discount is on the item you want and take advantage of Cyber Week’s online deals.

5. Artifact Uprising Printed Photography Products: Up to 20% Off

We never looked back as soon as we realized we could print very high-quality photo books we were proud of, at an affordable price on Artifact Uprising. (And if we did, it was only to shake our heads about not realizing the best quality photo books option was in front of our faces for years before we put two and two together.)

They also have great holiday cards if you haven’t ordered them yet!

These premium quality photo books have minimal options to maximize your time and efficiency. We share the details on Sometimes Home. #photobooks #travelmemories #vacationphotos

Artifact Uprising is a small business owned by a family in Colorado, who started the company to create stellar products. They use recycled materials whenever possible and are very eco-conscious.

We’re working on making one of these books for each of our trips, starting with the big trips down to small ones.

They’re easy to design in Artifact Uprising’s online software, and there are few options to customize, which means you’ll actually finish the book in record time and hit “order,” unlike some other sites whose quality sucks, and they overwhelm you with so many options you can’t make a decision and end up abandoning the book.

Trust us and check them out. They also have really cool press-printed cards, calendars and framed prints.

They are offering two discounts depending on the amount of money you spend, from 15% sitewide to 20% off an order $99+ with code GIFTJOY through November 28, 2022.

It’s not a secret we LOVE food. From Barcelona’s tapas to Valencia delicious typical cuisine, Slovenia dumplings and other food delicacies and beyond, food is our jam! Even food in the United States, like if we’re eating our way through a southern menu or South Carolina restaurants in Fort Mill, or mastering happy hour at Disney Springs, it’s special to us. And yes, we spend a lot of money on food because it makes us happy.

FOOD EXPERIENCES make us even happier, and Goldbelly helps make food experience dreams come true, right in our home. (Because we’re secretly part introverts who LOVE being home too. That’s why we’re “Sometimes Home.”)

8. CabinZero Backpacks Online Deals: Up to 50% Off

Our Cabin Zero backpacks became our #1 luggage as soon as we got them. And we’ve been spreading the word about them since they’ve been in our lives.

These backpacks fit so much more than we ever thought possible when we saw them online – or even when we first saw them in person. But once we started to pack it full of our clothes, shoes, toiletries and more, we were very impressed. We can pack these for a two-week trip and we’re ready to go.

We use them for travel abroad and road trips. They fit quite nicely in our car trunks. And since they take up less space than typical luggage, that leaves way more room for other items we want to pack in our vehicles. We also love all the compartments our backpacks have.

We enjoy being mobile with them on our backs instead of lugging around luggage on wheels on cobblestone streets in Europe. They have also always fit in any overhead bin on any plane we’ve been on, from a small commuter plane to huge cross-continent planes. They actually fit under our seats too.

Cabin Zero is running a sale for Black Friday, for up to 50% off on select items. We’ve seen savings of over $100 on some of their huge bags we L-O-V-E.

10. Nespresso VertuoPlus Espresso and Coffee Maker: Nearly $75 Off

We resisted getting a Nespresso for a while. We already had a Keurig, so why would we need two coffee machines?

Well, because they’re not the same thing.

If you love coffee, you need a Nespresso. The little machine makes damn good espresso, great coffee, and even lattes with a milk frother that you can get with the machine. And Keurig doesn’t really do those things so well.

We stayed at a bunch of hotels over a period of a few years that had in-room Nespresso makers. Every time we had one at our disposal, we discussed getting one for our home. We finally bit the bullet and got one a few years ago and have been obsessed ever since. There has been no looking back!

We love our Nespresso Vertuo and the milk frother that came with it. They were worth every penny. The Vertuo pods are fantastic, and the technology in the machine is such that it scans the pod you place into the machine and figures out the correct water to add. MAGIC!

You can add warm milk to your coffee with the milk frother like they do in Europe or froth it cold in warm weather for iced lattes. It’s divine. As I said, we purchased this one this year and have never looked back. And guess what? Their pods are actually recyclable, unlike Keurig cups.

The Nespresso machine we recommend is usually about $250 with the frother, but you can get it right now for under $174.

We’re not sure how long this deal will last but it’s currently available at this price so don’t delay.

Save Nearly $75 on a Nespresso!

11. Solis Wireless Hotspot and Pocket Wifi Up to 50% Off Data Plans

We like being online when we travel and can’t always only use our phones. But how do you connect to wifi when you’re on a road trip through North Carolina or France?

(We sometimes do work in the car while traveling within the US, and we need to stay connected abroad because we both own small businesses. Have you seen what mobile data charges overseas cost?)

We love our Skyroam wireless pocket-sized wifi hotspot. You can get online for 24 for about $8 and connect up to 5 devices. That’s pretty good.

If you need a hotspot – or even think you might in the future – you should buy a Solis Skyroam device. Or get one for a friend who loves to travel. Their data plans are on sale for Black Friday, up to 50% off and they’re offering up to 40% off a Solis device.

This is the BEST deal we’ve seen for Skyroam devices and wifi passes. Take advantage of it!

Bonus Trivia: Why is it Called “Black Friday?”

Black Friday is a reference to bookkeeping and revenue for shops. When shops are in the red they’re in negative numbers, or not profitable.

But when they’re in the black they’re prosperous and doing well. When hoards of people would shop following Thanksgiving, as perhaps the unofficial kickoff to holiday shopping, companies would see their profits rise.

A triptych of holiday gifts for a post about online deals.

Somewhere along the line, the weekend following American Thanksgiving became the official start to Christmas shopping in modern history. And thanks to the boom in shopping, which equaled profits, it became known as Black Friday.

I grew up as the proud daughter of two parents running a small business for hobbies – with toys and crafts and all kinds of things for sale, including model airplanes, cars, crystal growing kits, and glitter + glue supplies. So I was very aware of Black Friday weekend and what it meant for small businesses throughout my childhood.

Some of the items here are through big business because it’s unavoidable. But many, like Stasher and Etsy, support small(er) businesses trying to do good and earn an honest living. Like most of us, right?

We appreciate your interest in these deals and are grateful for you, always. Which is why we create these posts for you to benefit from.
