Black Friday is fast approaching and if you are one of the brave souls You might be heading out to the stores to get the deals of the year. For those of you taking part in Black Friday for the first time I thought it would be nice to share some tips with you.
Make a List and a Game Plan
The crowds and the competition may be fierce. Know what you are looking for at each store and cross items off as you go. Scour the ads prior to leaving the house and know where the best deals are.
Get a Shopping Buddy (or 2)
Shopping with other(s) is key. Lines will be long. Have one person wait in line while you quickly find the items on your list. Be sure to return the favor and switch positions. If nothing else, having a friend with you to discuss the crazy shoppers can be entertaining.
Divide and Conquer
Perhaps neither of you mind waiting in line. In that case, divide the list up and each of you find the items on your half of the list.
It's going to be a long night and day....prepare yourself.
This is the season of good tidings and giving. Be nice. Be pleasant.
Avoid the Stores that are Open on Thanksgiving
This is a personal choice for me but I would boycott a store that makes it's workers give up their holiday so people can shop. Thanksgiving should be about family and giving thanks. It should not be commercialized and about buying more.
And because it's Monday, I choose to start my week off with Emily from Ember Grey for Grateful Heart Monday. What am I grateful for today? CYBER MONDAY. The deals are amazing. There are no lines and now waiting. I can shop in my pjs and not leave the warmth of my home.
You will not find me near a store on Black Friday. Where can I be found? The same place I am every year on Black Friday.
