Create a Budget and a Game Plan
Be prepared and be organized when it comes to your Black Friday expedition. Begin by establishing a budget of how much you can afford to spend and also a list of what you’re seeking to buy. Then identify whether the things you want to buy are cheaper online or offline, says Smith.
Sites like BlackFriday.com compile Black Friday ads from many stores. And the site is updated with new information as it becomes available, allowing you to figure out well ahead of time where to get the best deal. And this site is just one example. “Most major retailers will release their deals for Black Friday the week before to give consumers time to plan and get excited about what they want to purchase,” Smith says.
