Prepping for Black Friday

The countdown to Black Friday has begun.

In just two short weeks, the traditional kick-off to the holiday shopping season begins.

But in reality, if you want to be successful in scoring the best deals that day, you've got to start doing your homework now.

Here are a few Black Friday websites to get you started:

The turkey deals at the supermarkets have begun.

Holiday Help: Great gift for a great cause

Note: This is the latest installment in an occasional series of posts focusing on ways to celebrate the holidays without spending a lot of money.

I wanted to share with you one of my most favorite gifts for the holidays: the Whole Planet Foundation calendar sold at Whole Foods.

For just $3, you get a beautiful calendar filled with coupons for products sold at Whole Foods stores. And, every penny of your $3 goes to support micro-lending programs to help women in countries across the globe lift their families out of poverty.
