Can you believe it’s only 10 days until Thanksgiving? And do I dare even mention that only 11 days until Black Friday? That’s scary! Each year I tell myself I am going to start shopping earlier for the next and each year I seem to put it off until it’s almost the holiday.
Now I am not one that likes to deal much with all the craziness of Black Friday. I do know there is so many good deals out there. I found a site called www.theblackfriday.com they have managed to put together an awesome list of all the scanned black friday ads. This might be an excellent place for you to check out so you can start mapping out your daily schedule.
I would also like to offer a few strategies for all the shoppers!
Cyber Monday is just a couple days away so save some money, Breathe deeply and know that it’s going to be okay!
If you have a smart phone download some shopping Apps. That way you can scan barcodes and compare prices. A couple of my favorite shopping apps? Redlaser (it is free) and amazon mobile.
have some kind of idea of what types of things you are looking for. Write them down so you don’t forget. Sometimes we may have in our heads what we need but getting out in crowds can be stressful and may make it hard to remember.
If you can get a group together go in numbers. It will be safer that way.
wear layers of clothes you can add or shed so you are comfortable. This isn’t a day for lipstick and heels- okay the lipstick is okay!
Throw a snack in your purse. those lines can get long!
stick to a game plan and don’t budge.
watch out for other people. I am not saying be paranoid but this is the time to be Careful! Hold on to your purse or carry your money/CC somewhere safe. Also hold on to your phone.
Take time out of your day to do something for you. treat yourself to a nice brunch or pedicure..
