Ways To Save On Black Friday!

I love shopping on Black Friday. I always have a lot of fun, and the deals can truly be amazing! Apparently, even under the influence of a “Turkey-day hangover” and nostalgic holiday sentiment, I still do not spend frivolously. Here are some of my favorite Black Friday shopping tips to save you some cash!

- Have a plan. The importance of having a plan can not be overemphasized because it will allow you to efficiently make your purchases without wasting the whole day going to store to store (unless that’s part of the fun for you). For example, last year I had a list of about 6 stores that I wanted to visit, with their special Black Friday hours of operation, the items I wanted to buy, and a contingency plan if I was unable to get a desired item at one location. For example, when I got to Best Buy, the line was too long, so I knew the same items that I would buy at Best Buy could also be purchased at a similar price at Target, so I left Best Buy and went to the next store.
- Also, work out the logistics of your trip as well. For example, consider stores in close proximity of each other and choose stores with multiple locations. This could significantly reduce your driving time. All of stores I visited were less than 10 minutes away from my house and were just a few blocks away from each other. Also, make sure you have enough space for your purchases. This may mean emptying your car trunk and your back seat.
- Do comparison price analysis. Check out the costs of the items you are interested in by visiting Amazon.com.
