Black Friday… everyone looks forward to the sales, but dread the crowds. It can be a very hectic day if you aren’t prepared, so I have prepared a list of  tips so you can go out their with a little less stress.

1.      Do your research: Make sure you know what you want to buy and have a list prepared. Going into stores unprepared is like a war zone! Make sure you have your ads ready and organized. Check out bfreedom.com for a round up of all the sales and deals for your Black Friday shopping all in one place.

2.      Compare prices : check out sites like Price Grabber that can compare prices on certain products and tell you where the better deal is.

3.      Rest up and go prepared: After your Thanksgiving festivities head straight to bed. Hey,  if you are planning on hitting the stores at 3am you will need those extra zzz’s. Don’t forget to bring snacks and a water bottle. You don’t want low blood sugar and dehydration to add to the insanity.

4.      Divide and conquer & practice the buddy system. Bring family and friends with you ‘cuz its more fun and can be super helpful.  Plan your attack- have one person hold your spot in line while the others go grab the goodies.

5.      Stay home and shop on-line! – Online websites have caught onto Black Friday and have offered the public great deals right at your figure tips.

Don’t forget about Cyber Monday!

Hopefully you have gained a few tips on how to cope with shopping on Black Friday. It’s crazy out there so be prepared and try and have fun!

What do you do to prepare for black Friday?

    Putting Black Friday and Cyber Monday to a close, I must say that these are two of the most exhausting times of the year. One reason being that I pulled a 48 hour wake from Thanksgiving all the way through Black Friday, and the other is that these are the final two weeks of class for this semester! Although I was dragged into the Black Friday festivities by my mom and my aunt, I definitely ended up getting a lot of great deals on some new clothes, and I definitely needed some new clothes. I also got this amazing jacket that I would probably wear to bed if it wouldn’t wrinkle. But enough about that.. before I end up sounding weird. The tips here are essential to anyone who wants a successful Black Friday or Cyber Monday. Unfortunately, with the internet being so vast, it becomes a little bit harder to match up the right prices online for Cyber Monday, however, that huge Thanksgiving paper (you know, the one that can break a window if you club it) is the one you need to grab asap in order to really figure out where the deals are. I think that my holiday shopping was a success, I just forgot one big aspect of the whole thing: SLEEP! =(
