Black Friday

Tomorrow is the biggest shopping day of the year, commonly referred to as Black Friday. Shopping on this day can be an overwhelming experience, so it’s best to go with a plan! First, either call or check the websites of your favorite stores. Some will be opening as early as 4am! Make sure you prioritize the order you will visit stores, as the best deals expire fairly early in the morning, and obviously the selection goes down very quickly with so many shoppers. Check online or in your local newspaper for coupons for additional savings. And, most importantly, set a budget for the day. I like to do this by taking out in cash the exact amount I’m allowing myself to spend. That way, when it’s gone, it’s gone. It’s easy to go overboard with so many good sales. Happy shopping!
