Fortunately, I was able to get a great deal on Black Friday. I need a new Apple iMac because I can no longer get updates for mine. It’s 12 years old. I’ve been watching the prices for the Apple 27” iMac with Retina 5K display for months. Finally, for Black Friday, Apple reduced the price $600.
If you read my newsletter (sign up here if you haven’t seen it yet), you know I advised consumers to start their Black Friday shopping for several weeks ago.

I’m so excited that J. Money of Budgets are Sexy wrote an entire article about my newsletter Thursday, even including all of my top 10 tips from last week, for his readers. I have more than 100 new signups for my newsletter as a result. Take a look what J. Money had to say:
