Black Friday is the day following Thanksgiving Day in the United States. Since the early 2000s, it has been regarded as the beginning of the Christmas shopping season in the US, and most major retailers open very early and offer promotional sales. Perhaps this is the best time to buy what you need to spruce up your deck, to give your home the makeover it needs, or tools for home maintenance to save on costs.
To make the most out of Black Friday, here are some tips worth well remembering:
- Decide in advance what is the most important you absolutely need. Black Friday is not the time to browse.
- Give preference to big-ticket items, as you will save more on those.
- Buy only what you need.
- Park smart. Park in the parking lot of nearby other place where there is no sale. This way, you wont get stuck in BIG queue of people coming in and out to the main store.
- Shop online. No crowds. No queues. No hassle.
