Save Money Monday: Black Friday shopping tips

As if Thanksgiving, one of the best holidays of the year, wasn’t enough, it’s followed by Black Friday – the best shopping day of the year. Save Money Monday is here to provide a how-to shopping tips to help you get the most out of Black Friday.

The first key to a productive Black Friday shopping trip is to figure out what items are on your list to buy. That point is vital to remaining efficient in your shopping.

Once you have a list of items, the next step is to scout out which stores have the best sales for the types of items you are seeking. Coupon bloggers can be of great assistance in this matter. Some of our favorite coupon bloggers are The Realistic Couponer, Nifty Mom, Southern Cali Saver, Coupon Katarina and Coupon Mamacita.

Now that you know what items you want and which stores you need to target, you should figure out when each store opens when and plot out your trip. Some kick off at midnight, while others don’t open until the wee hours of the morning. That information is pivotal to your planning.

Use a site like Mapquest or Google Maps to get directions to each store and take that into account as well when deciding which route to take and which stores to visit first.

Finally, with everything planned, set a budget. Even on Black Friday, you can wind up spending a fortune if not careful. The last thing you need is to go into debt, while buying discount merchandise!

Have fun shopping everyone and share with us your strategies in our comments.
