Sure, turkey and mashed potatoes are delicious and all, but we’d be lying if we said we aren’t as equally excited for Black Friday as we are for Thanksgiving (pumpkin pie aside, of course).

This year, however, several retailers are giving you the option to get a head start on your holiday shopping with early Black Friday deals on home essentials, tech gadgets, furniture, and more.

Now, it may seem a bit ludicrous to already be thinking of Black Friday, but RetailMeNot Shopping Expert Kristin McGrath told Today that if you don’t plan ahead for these sales, you may miss out — or the products may sell out.

To beat the crowds and stress less, here are early Black Friday deals from major retailers like Target, Ulta, Wayfair, and more.

Target is wasting no time. On Oct. 10, the retail chain kicked off its early bird Black Friday sale and patrons can score up to 50% off storewide.

If you’ve had your eyes set on a new set of AirPods or a KitchenAid mixer, be on the lookout for Target’s “Deal of the Day.” The daily spotlight features major markdowns on top brands like Apple, Nintendo, and more.
