Five Fandom FridaysIt’s Friday. That means another edition of Five Fandom Friday from geeky bloggers all over thanks to the genius of Super Space Chick and The Nerdy Girlie. Today’s topic: Black Friday Purchases I Would Sacrifice A Night Of Sleep For. My choices are below. 


amazon kindleAs you may know, I’m an avid reader. I’ve had a Kindle for a very long time and despite some hiccups in the version I owned it served me well enough. That is until it got smashed and the screen is now ruined. As such, I would lose sleep to get a great deal on a new Kindle to replace the one I’ve broken.

Orange Kitchen Aid Mixer 

kitchenaid mixerI mix my cookies and cakes and other mixes by hand.  It tends to create a very tired arm.  I grew up using a Kitchen Aid mixer at my parents and would love to have one of my very own.  I’ve watched the price of the mixer over the years and if there was a deal resulting in an amazing deal on this kitchen staple, I’d gladly be awake for more than 24 hours.

LCD Projector 

lcd projectroI’ve been on the lookout for a quality projector (think office grade) that can display images from my computer for several years.  I’ve got some art projects planned that will be impossible to complete without this device.  So you can imagine I’d lose sleep over an amazing deal on a quality projector because until I own one those art projects will just remain an idea that I’m dying to realize.


pillowsI am in desperate need of new quality pillows. And given the fact there are 6 full size pillows on my bed, I could use a bargain. Don’t judge. Two are used headboard style which leaves only four for sleeping and you know you feel more comfortable with a pillow between the knees. Admit it. Imagine the night’s sleep I could get after losing sleep to buy quality pillows!

Fish Tank

I’ve been on the look out for a great fish tank (it’s almost like buying a car nowadays with all the options), but with the fish tank purchase come the need for several other things (filters, pumps, lights, underwater castles…). I would definitely forego some sleep to make my little fish buddy happier. Also, if you have knowledge about fish tanks, please let me know. It is not my forte.


And that’s my list of Black Friday Purchases I Would Sacrifice A Night Of Sleep For for Fandom Friday. I’m sure it would be quite the interesting meal. While I go watch some Thanksgiving episodes of Friends, you can check out more interesting Thanksgiving feasts from these women:

If reading about what I would lose sleep to buy doesn’t have you running out to shop, you can head over to twitter and search #Fandom5 to find even more items people are willing to lose sleep for.  What would you sacrifice sleep for to get a screaming deal on?

  1. I think that I would lose a night of sleep for a great deal on a KitchenAid mixer too. They are just so expensive normally and I’ve always wanted one. I adore the color of orange you chose too.
