The deals may be hot this Black Friday, but the weather certainly isn’t.

As energy prices have also skyrocketed over the past year, this means many of us are trying to turn up the heat.

If you go shopping this Black Friday, you’re likely to come across discounted fashion, beauty, and technology. However, it can pay off to think long-term about your sales wish list.

The promotional event is a great time to stock up on essentials – and score a bargain on big ticket purchases you’ve been putting off – while they’re marked down.

If these purchases help you save money on heating your home in the winter, even better…

Check out our top Black Friday picks to get cozy on a budget this winter.
