As part of an ongoing series, the CNN Underscored team showcases outstanding deals you can shop right now in the CNN Store. Each week, our staff features a product we think you'll love. This week, we're highlighting the CNN Store's Black Friday Sale.

As much as we want to go back to school, time and costs typically prevent us from doing so. But that shouldn't get in the way if you're looking to learn more about coding, data and analytics platforms, or even graphic design.

Online educational classes are a cost-effective solution that allow you to learn in your free time. Take the offerings on the CNN Store right now, for instance. Many of these education bundles offer lifetime access to the courses, so if you ever need a refresher or extra time to complete the classes, it's easy to do so. And many of these bundles (which range from iOs developer courses to the fundamentals of drawing) feature economical price tags — some even start as low as $8.

There's even better news. Everything will be further marked down this Black Friday. From now until Nov. 27, shoppers can take an additional 75% off educational bundles on the CNN Store by using the code BFBUNDLE75 at checkout. That means you can save more money on top of the already affordable price tag on all the programs below. And if you're looking to fill your shopping cart with other goods, the CNN Store is also offering 20% off its physical goods, such as headphones and power banks, with the code BFSAVE20 as well as 40% off its apps and software programs with the code BFSAVE40, such as VPNs and cloud storage.

To help get your shopping list started, we've compiled some of our favorite learning programs. These bundles will give you the professional know-how and insider tips and tricks to help you conquer complex theories, professions or even software programs. Consider your New Year's Resolutions for 2019 sorted.
