Helpful tips for Black Friday Shopping

1) Safety first!

*Everyone loves a great holiday deal or two, especially when you have several people to shop for. BUT it's important to be safe and responsible when you're out shopping in the holiday rush. Nothing is more important than you health and well-being so be careful and have fun!

2)Do your homework!

*Make a list of all the things you have to shop for and decide where you need to shop to get it. There are numerous stores that are offering early morning Black Friday deals therefore it's important to narrow down which deals are best suited for what you need to buy.

Essentially, you want to know what you're looking for before you rush out in the early morning crowds.

3) Compare shopping!

*After you figure out everything you want to shop for, compare the differet Black Friday deals offered by each store selling the item(s) you want. You don't want to get up early, just to spend more money on a hot ticket item at one store when you could've got it cheaper by shopping at
another store.

4) Be prepared!

* If you have your eye on a special deal that was advertised in the paper, you definitely want to make sure you have the sales paper with you! It's always good to have the store's sales paper in hand when you're shopping on Black Friday, in case , you're looking for a item but get turned around trying to find in a rush in the store.

If you have a sales paper, you can easily point out what you're looking for to an employee at the store and be directed to it without breaking a sweat. The Groupon app and stores apps are also handy to download on your phone because you may get extra savings off. Best Buy and Walmart , for example, have great smartphone apps to download for free.

5) Stay Focused!

* Black Friday deals can be rather tempting and hard to pass up. However, it's important to remember what you need to shop for. You don't want to end up buying a bunch of items that you don't need and then return them later.

If you stay focus on what you need to buy, you can shop smarter and perhaps have enough money left over to shop for what you want or to put towards other gifts.

Most of all have fun and enjoy your holiday and shopping!
