Plan Your Shopping List

This means that you should sit and write down all of the things you need and are planning to purchase on Black Friday.

I recommend writing the list by category, so you are the most organized you can get. 

Also, write down which stores you are planning to purchase from.


If You Shop Online, Have The Items in Your Cart

One of the most important Black Friday tips to know about if you want to make sure you have your hands on whatever you decided to buy – a few days before Black Friday, add the items you desire into your cart, so once the Black Friday deals start, you can purchase them immediately!


Plan Your Shopping Trip

By this, I mean that once you’ve finished your Black Friday shopping list, decide which mall/malls you want to go to, and write down the stores you are planning to visit.

I recommend writing them down by the mall’s floors, and really plan the shopping trip to the mall so you won’t waste time looking for stores and getting lost in the mall.

Look Through Leaked Ads Early

There are a lot of leaked Black Friday ads before Black Friday. Also, I highly recommend checking out to keep yourself updated on new deals and Black Friday deals updates!


Get Out Early

If you don’t shop online, and you want to go to the mall itself, make sure to get out early. This means heading out to the mall on Thursday night or heading out early on Friday.

The sooner you’ll arrive, the more likely you’ll find the stuff you want.


Shop Late

Since malls and stores want shoppers to be in the store all day, sometimes they offer late shopper deals.

This tip doesn’t mean that you should be 12 hours at the mall, you can also sleep in and arrive at the mall later in the day when the late deals start!


Shop With a Friend

Black Friday shopping is always exciting, but it is definitely much more fun if you are doing it with a close friend!

Pay Attention to Early Black Friday Deals

If you want to mark some items off your shopping list, there are great early Black Friday deals during Black Friday week.

So if you see something you really want to get and it’s for a great price – why not get it on the early Black Friday deals and mark it off your list?!


Use Cash

I always recommend using cash on Black Friday because it really helps you keep track of every dollar you are spending.

Also, by using cash you basically decide on a budget for Black Friday, which means no money problems after! 😉


Know The Return Policy

This is one of the most important Black Friday tips honestly.

It’s important to know the return policy because usually, people go crazy at stores, there aren’t enough dressing rooms and the line to it is long, and then you don’t try the clothes on (that’s one example though).

That’s why it’s very important to know the return policy in case you come back home and find out you don’t like something or regret buying it.


And that’s it! These were my TOP 10 Black Friday tips I think you should know before the biggest shopping day of the year!
