17 Nov How you Should Prepare for Your Black Friday Shopping Holiday Spree
Black Friday is the busiest shopping day of the year. With that being said, it is easy to get caught up in the chaos searching for the best deals. Millions of Americans wait till the first hours of Black Friday so they can get the best possible deal on their Christmas gift list. In our area many of the black Friday deals start early as 9pm on Thanksgiving evening. If you want to have a successful Black Friday shopping trip this year, it may be smart to follow this list of Black Friday tips on how to prepare for you shopping spree.
Make sure to have a list. Look at all Black Friday sale ads and plan a list of what you plan to buy. Having a list helps you stray away from unnecessary impulse buys. Having a list also helps you plan what you can afford without going over budget. One of the worst things is starting the holiday season already in debt. Having a list will help to alleviate some time in your busy schedule.
We recommend not shopping for yourself. If you have some extra money in your budget and feel comfortable shopping for yourself, that is your decision. But remember your goal of Black Friday shopping, to get the best deals on gifts to save money.
Take advantage of online shopping. Why wait till cyber Monday for the best online deals? Many companies have the same deals that are in-store, online too! Stay comfortable in your home on Black Friday and shop online. Online shopping is becoming more and more popular.
Double check on each stores return policy. In case you make that impulse buy that you may later want to return, make sure you can actually return it first. Some retail stores change their return policy during the holiday season. Make sure to keep your receipts until at least after Christmas.
Don’t ruin your Thanksgiving. It seems that every year retail stores are opening earlier and earlier. Don’t rush your Thanksgiving meal and time with your family just to get the best deals. At the end of the day, quality time with family matters more than any materialistic gift.
