Chances are you may not know what day or time it is because you’re focused on the results of the most consequential elections of our lifetime. NBD! But we’re here to let you know that Black Friday is actually 23 days away, and some retailers like Walmart have leaked some deals today to maybe help distract us. If anything, shopping early Black Friday deals will at least provide some much needed retail therapy in light of everything. 

Walmart appears to be starting Black Friday ahead of everyone else with hundreds of deals released tonight at 7 p.m. ET. This includes everything from major discounts on beauty products, fashion essentials, and electronics. Prices start at just $5. It really is almost enough to distract you from everything else happening right now, and we’ll gladly break out our credit cards over watching the news.

While there are plenty of expected deals, including an Instant Pot for $79 and Airpods for just $99, Walmart also likes to surprise. There are plenty of fashion deals you probably wouldn’t have anticipated from the retailer, like Gucci sunglasses and a Roberto Cavalli bag hundreds of dollars off. There are also plenty of pieces we should all be stocking up on for fall like puffer coats for just $25 and Hunter rain boots for under $100

As for beauty, Walmart is basically replicating some of our favorite Prime Day deals with discounts on CHI hair tools and the famous Ghd platinum plus flat iron. If you’ve already stocked up on those a couple weeks ago, maybe it’s finally time to invest in a beauty roller or Marc Jacobs’s best-selling daisy perfume

So while we all might joke about how easy it is to lose track of the days this year (and especially this week) you can honestly forget about Black Friday and not lose sleep over it. Just shop the best deals now instead.
