Black Friday Tips

Do you realize that Black Friday is 18 days away?  Christmas is 48 days away!  WHOA!  I have to admit, I have NEVER experienced Black Friday.  The idea of it always gets me excited and I’d like to attempt it but when it comes down to it… I have no idea how to be a successful Black Friday shopper.

There has to be a method to the madness or else people wouldn’t do it, right?

So.. why not collect tips from all of you pro’s to help me and others out!?  I know its sortof a late notice link party to join, but I’ll do this each Monday until the week of Christmas so that we can all help each other out!

I am linking up a friend of mine in my first link party to get the ball rolling as she has already started trying to help people out! 

PLEASE link up and tell us your secrets! If you have already written your post today, its okay—you can write another one or leave a comment!  Share the deals you have found!

I don't really have enough to write a whole post about because I've only been a couple of times. It's a major adrenaline rush though! It's do or die. You can be rude, pushy, and violent and nobody cares LOL.

These are my tips: Plan ahead! Know where you are going, what times, and what you need from every place. Make a paper list so you don't have to remember. Have enough people with you to get all the items you need. Sometimes everything is unwrapped at one time and it's first come first serve. If you don't have enough friends make a friend at the store that might need the same things you need. Get two and swap! Also, just wear your pjs. You will be getting up way earlier than should be legal and will probably be going back to bed as soon as you get home. :)

All I do is shop online...early in the morning. Best way to do it. I don't do the going to stores thing...that is too insane for me! lol!

JennyKate would have TONS of tips. They make a whole 24 hour day of it and I'm not even kidding. I've done it a couple of times but I have people rage. This year, I'll be in Michigan so I probably won't go. But I'm gonna check out the tips.

Great idea J!

I haven't done black Friday either mostly because I'm too lazy to get up early. I think it sounds fun though. Maybe this year. :)

I absolutely LOVE black friday! Something about it, just gives me a rush! haha. I ususally only go to Toys R Us & Target, so I guess I'm not as crazy about it as others.. but I'm at Toys R Us waiting in line in the freezing cold every year. haha. I'm so so so thankfull that they open at 10:00pm on thanksgiving night now, makes it so much easier. :) My advice is make a list of what you want at eat store, big items first. If you have more than one big item.. make sure you have at least two people. bring an unbrella, gloves, big coat, hat, hot chocolate, etc. if you'll be standing in line. Try to stay calm, & walk, very very fast!! ;) lol. Yep, that's all i got, but I love it.
