Black Friday's Back!!!

Black Friday's Back!!!

Black Friday is the culmination of the entire year’s spent looking forward to this very special day. Shopaholics get to indulge in their shopping addiction and people saving their money throughout the year take it out to splurge on absolute delights. Black Friday is no joke. It really is big business and there are deals absolutely everywhere from your favorite pair of skis to musical instruments, kitchen appliances and more. It’s time to celebrate Christmas early!

What To Buy First - Separating Confusion

You may not know where to begin. There are so many sales and so little time (only 24 hours in a day) so the best thing is to prioritize. Maybe there is something you have wanted for a really long time that you actually need - like a laptop. Write a line down a piece of paper and separate them by writing ‘Wants’ on the left hand side and ‘Needs’ on the right hand side. Write 5 points for each and start off with your needs. Then go ahead and write all the things that you really want but are not that necessary in your life. After you have done that work out how much you are willing to spend on each item.

As stated above, write down exactly how much you are willing to spend per item. Once you have done that see how much you have available on your credit card and money in the bank. Be careful. You do not want to spend more than you can afford and if that is the case take that list of yours and literally halve it.

You will feel much better for it.

Time Management

So you will really want to get up early on Friday. From online shopping to actually waiting at stores - especially waiting in line at stores, being there early will give you an advantage. If you want extra energy for the day you are going to want to put an extra pep in your step and that can be done by taking a supplement or two early in the morning.

Bring Help Along

You only have two hands so bring help along! Whether it’s your sister or your mom or a bunch of friends (especially a bunch of friends, making it even more fun!) bringing along help will really be important. You will need a car to place all your items in, so if you don’t have one make sure someone does. You can all help each other carry bags and get through the crowds of people.

If you know you are going to bring in new clothes, go through your cupboard and take out items you never wear and put them somewhere where they can either be given to charity or sorted out later. With regards to kitchen appliances, make space under the counter by going through your cupboards. If you haven’t used a certain pot or appliance for over 2 years you know it’s time to get rid of it. In general, just make space available so that once your new items are brought into the house it will not be a huge mission placing them. Enjoy getting ready for Black Friday and enjoy all the special offers Black Friday will give you. Hopefully you will be able to get at least a few items that you really have needed for a while!
