I am a die hard Black Friday shopper. Last year I mapped out my shopping conquest and literally was out from 9pm (the time I got in line at the first store) until 11am the next morning when I was crawling my tired but up the stairs and into bed. But I saved over $250 dollars on Christmas…can’t beat that! Though I will say, I was tired and worn out for about a week…but it was worth it!
My plan of attack this year…online shopping! With Black Friday online deals and Cyber Monday deals, you can sometimes get even better deals all while staying in your comfy PJ’s! One of the first stores I usually hit when I go out on Black Friday is Target. They always have amazing deals and I love the way they set up the store for you to pay…they herd you around the store in one large line, but it’s organized and efficient. One year I even picked up a $10 vacuum that would still be working today if it wasn’t for the fact that I dropped it down the basement stairs. Since I don’t plan on going out this year, I do plan on using coupons to purchase my items. The nice thing about Target online, if it doesn’t fit or I don’t like it, simply take it back to my nearest store! Easy peasy!
My other favorite store to hit up is Macy’s. Now Macy’s can be expensive, but when you can hit one of their sales, you get a TON for your money! I was in Macy’s shortly before I started my new job and it was right around one of their “Biggest Sales of the year” sales. I got 5 shirts for work that would have normally cost me over $100 and only paid $23. $23 dollars! That’s crazy! So on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, I will do the same thing with Macy’s that I will be doing with target…using coupons! Why not save even more money?!?
So have you looked at the Black Friday ads yet? What is your must have item for that night/morning?
