Black Friday Prep: Your Guide

It's that time of year again: Black Friday Prep. I'm one of those people who is big on Black Friday because I love a good sale, and this is the mother of all sales. It also helps that for me, Black Friday is a family affair that my sister and parents love as much as I do! (Well, almost as much.)

I've created a long-loved series of posts on exactly how to tackle this beast.

Step 1: Make your Lists (and check them twice).

Step 2: Plan your Outfit for maximum efficiency.

Step 3: Put together your Game Plan to help get the most out of your time.

Step 4: Pack your kit so you don't go out unprepared.

I'll be coming out with more Black Friday content for those of you fellow shoppers.  Don't miss it!

How to Organize your Job Hunt

When you are sending out 10 job applications a week, it can be difficult to keep track of. Your poor computer weeps as you leave open 15 tabs of jobs you want to apply for but haven't gotten to yet. You can't remember if this new posting is for a job you've already applied for, or a new job at the same company. I have been there, and done that, and it's no fun. But luckily for me, and now for you, I discovered a site that helps handle all that for you!

It's called JobHero, and you can access it for free at You sign up and it basically compiles the job listing you save to it, kind of like pinterest, but instead of images with links, it has a listing with all the relevant info, the link to the original listing, and handy color coded buttons to help you keep track of the status of your applications.

Now you can close all those tabs, save listings to review later, and keep track of where you are in the applicant pool all from one spot! You can easily fill in the necessary fields using the bookmarklet which you can add to your browser, and then all you need to do is click it and highlight the necessary info. For certain job boards, like LinkedIn and Indeed, it will even upload all the detail automatically with one click.

This tool totally saved my sanity during my job hunt and it might save yours, too!
