How To Survive Black Friday
Create A Game Plan //
Before you even leave the house or sit down for Thanksgiving dinner, you should create a ‘How To Survive Black Friday’ game plan. This game plan should consist of a list of places to shop, when to shop at each store (do they have doorbuster specials?), what you are buying in that certain store, who you are buying for, and how you’re shopping (in-person/online). This game plan could change based on the store but you should try to keep to the game plan as much as possible.
Prepare Extra Coupons //
Most stores will start (or have already started) sending out additional coupons. If you are getting these coupons via email, take a screen shot of the coupon. More times than not, stores will have spotty wi-fi so having a picture of the coupon will make it easier to pull up. Now if you are using physical coupons, keep them in a safe location you won’t lose.
Dress The Part //
Leave the heels at home and dress the part. When deciding what to wear on your shopping trip, keep it comfortable and casual. Either opt for a pair of leggings, joggers, or jeans. As far as shirts go, dress in layers. It’ll be cold outside standing in lines but the stores might be warm and toasty. Sweaters and t-shirts are great layering pieces.
Make It Fun //
Black Friday can be stressful and exhausting so it’s important to make it fun. Go shopping with a group of people who are easy to joke around with, make you laugh, you can take silly SnapChats with and help make the day seem less overwhelming. Also, think about stopping at a good breakfast or lunch restaurant.
Sales start at all hours Thanksgiving Day, Thanksgiving night, Black Friday morning, and Black Friday afternoon. Stay awake with lots of coffee. Think about taking a thermos or Yeti tumbler full of coffee just in case you can’t find an open coffee shop.
