The Deals may be hotting up this Black Friday, but the weather certainly isn’t.

As energy prices have skyrocketed over the last year too, it means a lot of us are looking to cut down on turning the heating up.

If you’re doing some shopping this Black Friday, you’ll likely come across discounted fashion, beauty, and tech. However, it could pay off to think long-term with your sale wishlist.

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

If these buys help you save money on heating your home over winter, even better…

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