Your Guide to Black Friday Shopping

Happy Thanksgiving to all! This is a wonderful time of year to enjoy relaxing with family and eating up to your brim the delicious foods of the feast. It also is a unique opportunity to recognize the wonderful blessing it is to live in such a place as this great country.

Take extra time {and effort} this weekend to express your gratitude for your loved ones.

And before you let the inevitable pressure to shop get to you, take a moment to remember that there are going to be incredible sales the next few days and weeks as the year winds down. Don't let yourself feel pressured into buying something purely because it is a percentage less expensive!

We are here to happily remind that there is no rush, and no pressure. So if you don't want to get into that crazy Black Friday bustle, don't! Let yourself relax and enjoy your time off!

In the event you do hit up the nearest mall to get some holiday shopping in, we'll share a few pro tips we’ve learned.

Fifty great sales each under $50 dollars.

Shop like a Pro:

  • Set a limit before you go. Whether or not you stick to a budget is up to you, but we know everyone enjoys a shopping adventure that was a success. One easy way to make a success is to set a limit of how much you’d be willing to spend, and then- here’s the hard part- stick to it. By telling yourself (and your kids) ahead of the trip how much you plan on spending total, you set a clear expectation that will be easier to hold to once inside the store.
  • Beeline for the back. Before weaving through each aisle to check off your list, head straight for the back sections of the store where the clearance and marked-down sections are. You never know how much of your list you’ll be able to check off, and even better done at a discount!
  • Use your resources. Use your phone to check the price at the store compared to the price on Amazon or Walmart, and make sure you are getting the best bang for your buck.
  • Relax.After you’ve been able to check off your list, do take some time to wind down! Enjoy shopping for yourself now that the rush is over!
