We gear up for Black Friday with tips on the hot tech items to be on the lookout for this holiday season with the High-Tech Texan, Michael Garfield. Plus, smart shopping expert, Trae Bodge, offers advice on the best deals, where to find them, and how to save money as you shop ‘til you drop.

As we shop for gifts for our loved ones, remember those children who may not receive a toy during the holidays. Toys for Tots is on a mission to deliver hope to those children who may not otherwise receive a gift. We talk with a representative from the organization who explains the history of the program and their efforts to ensure that every underprivileged child receives a present for Christmas.
