Are you nuts about black Friday?

I have a friend who literally plans for a month just for the Friday after Thanksgiving and all its glorious wonder. Therefor since we are a month away from BF we are going to start preparation.

Now I’ll be honest with you.  I’m not all that into Black Friday.  I love all the great deals, but I hate the huge crowds.  Plus I usually spend Thanksgiving weekend with my Wife, 2 daughters and extended family at the Family Beach House on Whidbey Island.

None the less, there are some screaming deals to be had on that special Friday-day.

Here are 5 tips so you are ready to get in get out and stick it to the man.

  1. Plan Ahead - Do not just shoot from the hip and head out Friday Morning.  You need a Plan.  If you fail to have a plan then you plan to have a fail. (That statement really doesn’t make sense. :) )
  2. Research - Determine what you want and look into the stores that have what you want.  Plan on visiting those stores first… first and early.
  3. Get some sleep – Store up as much sleep as you can in preparation because the best deals are found EARLY and the best Black Friday-ers do not sleep at all.
  4. Set a budget - You can get trapped in all the wondrous deals real fast.  Set a budget and spend no more than that.
  5. Post BF attack plan – Most deals are the send in for a rebate type deals, so Facebook your BFF’s (Black Friday Friends) to a PBFP (Post Black Friday Party), get all those rebates filled out then have a parade down to the post office and send them away.

Mission Accomplished.

As we get closer we’ll share more BF tips with you.
