Crowds of shoppers on Black Friday.
Thanksgiving is all about turkey, family, and being grateful for everything you have. The day after Thanksgiving, on the other hand, is about shopping, and scoring the best deals possible. Stores are going to be packed with shoppers all trying to buy the best gifts at the lowest prices. Don’t let that psyche you out, though. Here are a few tips to getting through the Black Friday shopping frenzy with your sanity (and wallet) intact:
Develop a shopping strategy. All those deals can be very tempting, but just because the item is cheap doesn’t mean you need it. Before you hit the stores, make a list of the people for whom you need to buy gifts.
Think carefully about your recipient’s interests. Just because a model airplane set is on sale doesn’t mean that your foodie nephew will be into it.
Set a limit on how much you can spend per person- there’s no reason to go into debt over holiday gifts.
