Black Friday shopping can be super stressful. To say that stores are crowded is putting it lightly. I used to love going to the mall, and waiting in ridiculous lines, and then leaving very satisfied that I got all my shopping done. In my old age though, I prefer to spend it in front of the computer screen.

However you choose to shop on Black Friday, here are some tips to make the most of it:

  1. Make a list of what you “intend” to buy otherwise you can go a little crazy. I am the return queen, and always buy more then I need with the intention of returning some items when I decide what I really want to keep. If you are not good at returning, make a list do that you don’t purchase more than you actually need. Which brings me to my second point…
  2. Make a budget. I like to allocate certain amounts of money for different people, and then I just search for items within my budget.
  3. Browse ahead of time. I like to put things that I want into my online “shopping cart” and then I keep them there until they go on sale.
  4. Don’t buy something just because it is on sale – see my first two points of making a list and a budget. You will over spend and you will buy things you don’t really need if you do this. I guarantee you! If you do see something that you love, snap a picture of it and send it to your hubby/mom/mother in law. They are probably out shopping for you as well. 😉
  5. Read product reviews. You may want to shell out the extra money if a product works better or lasts longer than it’s less expensive counterpart.
