What’s better than a free toy? Two free toys! Year after year, Walgreens offers buy two get two free children’s toys. They’re priced at $6.99, so after the sale they’ll come out to just $3.50 each. You can find brands like Disney, Marvel, PAW Patrol, Barbie, and Fisher-Price. I love this deal because I can get the kids toys and grab more for donations too.

A Black Friday deal on toilet paper or paper towels is probably not on the top of your shopping list, but I’ll be honest … if I can save on those items, I don’t care what day of the year it is. With a house full of kids, I might put a bow on one of the packs (just kidding).
