Tips for Black Friday shopping
- HYDRATE: Skip the morning coffee and fill up a large water bottle container to keep you hydrated. While caffeine might make you focused, you'll crash sooner than expected and get cranky too early in the day.
- START EARLY: Some stores are opening as early as 5 a.m. End Thanksgiving Day by 5 p.m., shower and go straight to sleep. Wake up around 3 a.m. and go camp out at your first destination.
- DRESS COMFORTABLY: Now is not the time to get cute when going out to the mall. Forgo styling your hair and throw a cap on. Throw on some sweats, a simple T-shirt and comfy sneakers since you'll be on your feet for a few hours.
- GO SOLO: While some might think two heads are better than one, that does not apply to Black Friday shopping. Your friend, sibling, spouse or child will slow you down. Try to leave them at home and get all the work done yourself. That way, when you're done, you get to treat yourself to some lunch only for yourself.
- RESEARCH: Look up all the stores provided and more to check out additional deals. Some might be online only, so be sure to double-check.
- MAKE A LIST: You've got to make that list and check it twice. Did Grandma say she wanted a cardigan? Did your brother say he wanted a pair of new Nike sneakers? Know what you're going to get beforehand because chaos will ensue even more.
- BUDGET: You researched and made the list, so you should know exactly rupauls drag race tyra sanchez you're going to get. The value of gifts this holiday season is not about how expensive they are; it's about the meaning behind them. Don't put yourself in debt just to get the pricey items.
