The excitement and joy of being together with family and friends ramps up quickly in the weeks before Christmas. But unfortunately, holiday expenses add up quickly – like food for family gatherings, present-buying for the kids, and extra costs for holiday parties. Luckily, we’ve compiled a list of the top five money-saving apps to help you find the best deals on the biggest shopping day of the year – Black Friday.
