It’s that time of year again, when otherwise normal people kick off the holiday season and get into fist fights over cheap TVs… For our US readers I can report that Black Friday has certainly spread to the UK, which seems a little odd as we don’t do Thanksgiving and this weekend isn’t a holiday but there you go.
If you’re in the market for some new bits and bobs to make your working life easier, here’s our annual roundup of links to deals we’ve spotted for anyone who’d rather click their way to money saving than get into a physical confrontation with fellow bargain hunters.
