Your mission for Thanksgiving Day? Survive the tryptophan coma and hit the streets to take advantage of some incredible deals!

Last year I received a Christmas gift that's a close runner up to my childhood Nintendo 64 as the best gift in the history of forever. It was a Cricut Explore Air cutting machine.  This thing cuts everything from card stock and vinyl to poster board and chipboard.  Once I got it, I wanted to make ALL OF THE THINGS that I saw in some crafting groups on Facebook.  It's killing me seeing some accessories and supplies that I want for my machine and the small business that it's spawned and NOT being able to go pick them up tomorrow night.  We're actually sitting down to Thanksgiving dinner about the time most of these stores open.

But if YOU have cleared your evening to load up the sleigh with presents, here's a look at when the most popular stores in the Treasure Valley open for their holiday sales and what I consider a "hot pick" at each location!
