The day of pressing your nose against a store window chanting, “Open, open, open,” is almost here. Black Friday. It’s THE day to hit hot sales, shop ’til you drop, and save some cash.
For shopaholics like me, it’s the most wonderful time of the year. But for those who hate shopping, it’s a pain in the ass. It doesn’t have to be. If you’re armed with a list, a plan, and a whole lot of patience, Black Friday can be a fun day of bargains and accomplishments. Think about it. If you can can get most of your holiday shopping done in one day, that leaves the rest of the season for you to sit back, relax, and enjoy.
So whether you’re dreading Black Friday or not, follow these nifty tips on how to shop Black Friday, and you’re bound to have a great day of shopping.
Making a list, setting a budget, and allowing this to be your plan of attack is the most responsible way one can shop. And shopping responsibly is the only way to ensure that you have a good shopping experience on Black Friday.
But, what about all those deals on televisions, gaming consoles, and smartphones that drive people crazy? How do you get a piece of that action?
Again, depend on BlackFriday.com to keep you updated on those deals. Expect to shop on Thanksgiving Day, not Black Friday, in order to be able to partake in those sales. And expect chaos, disgruntled employees, and possibly violence. If you do nab an off brand tablet for a mere $30, good for you. I hope interrupting your Thanksgiving Day was worth it.
As for the rest of us, let’s opt to shop responsibly and with our dignity intact. We deserve an enjoyable shopping experience to kick off a festive, joyful holiday season. Shop with intention, and you are sure to have more fun.
