CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- While you re in the midst of Black Friday preparation madness, I m busy gathering bargains and freebies that won t drive you crazy redeeming. Most of them are online that you can access with a click of a mouse.

First off though, a great coupon you can take with you if you re heading to the stores. Barnes and Noble has a 30 percent off coupon for any one item, minus Nook e-reader products.

Crafts store Michael s has a slew of high-valued coupons to print out, too. One is for 30 percent off your entire purchase, or 50 percent off one item. You gotta check them out here.

Meantime, from one of my favorite, favorite places in the world, Hawaii, comes Maui Soaps. Free sample of Maui body lotion here.

A personal personalized Santa message here.

Paula Deen has an e-book download for her holiday hosting guide here.

Have a happy and safe Thanksgiving tomorrow I ll see you on TV.
