The time has come - are you ready for it? BLACK FRIDAY .. the time everyone acts like a bunch of animals to save some cash. hahaha. I love it though, really. It's so much fun to people watch on Black Friday, plus - heck I'm one of those people that are out shopping at like 4:00am. You can get some great deals!!
Survival of Black Friday is the most important factor, besides the amazing deals though and I feel like there are so many tips to this! Here are a few of mine:
1.) Carry a bottle of water in your purse. You may get thirsty and the line's will be outrageous just to grab a drink. I also suggest throwing an extra bottle in your trunk, just in case.
2.) Dress in layers. Usually it's chilly, being it's late November, however, once you've been running around in stores filled with people you are going to probably be pretty steamy - so be sure that you have a short sleeved shirt underneath that sweater and scarf!
3.) Make a plan. Go through all of the Black Friday ads and map out which stores you want to visit and decide on what order to visit them in. If one particular store has a large item that quite a few people may be purchasing, I suggest hitting that one first and then going from there. Be sure to check out Office Depot too - they have some steals on great laptops, printing needs, and more! You might avoid the large crowd going to stores like this too, as not everyone thinks about popping into their local Office Depot. So plan well!
4.) Remember you are shopping for the holidays - don't be a grouch! Have fun, enjoy your shopping trip - not everyone gets to do this and you're purchasing items for a loved one - show some holiday spirit!
I hope some of those help! I know I always remind myself of each and every one of them!
Also, before Black Friday go ELF yourself! Hahaha. I absolutely love this little program. You can make yourself or a family member into a dancing Elf! :)
