Ready. Set. Go! A snarling rush of buyers squeeze through the doors in the early hours of the morning to get the best deals on expensive electronics, popular toys for Christmas and for the next "it" items. Understanding how to beat the rush and get a good deal can be frustrating for people who do not have time to plan their shopping venture.
Tip #1. Choose the most important things you want to obtain and place them on the shopping list in terms of cost. For example, buying a new laptop would be higher in the list than getting a new pair of socks.
Tip # 2. Make it a simple breakfast. Black Friday shopping can be difficult after a celebration dinner. A high protein breakfast, like bacon and eggs, provide energy for the days shopping, especially if you visit the stores that open early. Take frequent breaks during the shopping excursion, drink water, eat snacks and take stock of what is bought. Keep track of a budget and how much money is spent on this to avoid overspending or buying too many unnecessary gifts.
