My Plan Of Attack For Black Friday
There is only one thing that I look forward to more than the Thanksgiving meal. Well, other than the leftovers.
And that would be shopping. You definitely need a plan to shop strategically on the biggest retail day of the year.
So, in the spirit of giving -I will share my plan of attack for Black Friday this year (mind you, I have trackbacks on my blog so I will know if you follow/stalk me ; ) )
1. Collect and analyze the circulars. This step is crucial to knowing when stores open and to determine who has the best deal on what. For example, we want to buy a large flat screen TV. We will check out the prices at electronics stores, departments stores and big box chains.
2. Drive, baby, drive. While I am running around going to work this week or doing errands, I am going to pay close attention to the signs on stores and malls. Today I noticed that a major mall near me is going to have a Midnight Madness sale and open at 12am Friday morning, with giveaways and contests. I am so there!
3. Plan a path. Once I have figured out where the best deals are, I am going to centralize my shopping to a certain area. No need to waste time to go from a city that is an hour away from a good price. I will do my best to stay within a 30 mile radius while on my spree.
