What once was a somewhat limited, three-day sale that began the day after Thanksgiving has grown! Today, there are Thanksgiving Day sales, Black Friday weekend sales, Cyber Monday sales, and a bunch of other sales spread out over that week. Here is how to make the most of the Black Friday Sales.

Do Your Research
Start by figuring out what you need to purchase. Make a list of the things you want to buy family members as holiday gifts.

Do you need to replace appliances, upgrade computers, or do home repairs? Add that to your list as well.

Next, visit the websites of the stores you think will have what you want to buy. Compare prices. Make notes on your existing list that clearly states which store to get what item from. Doing so will help streamline your shopping during the busiest sales of the year.

Start Early
There will very likely be people who decide to camp outside the stores the night before the sales begin. They do this because the first people to enter the store have the best chance of getting to the things they want to buy.

Not everyone feels the need to be that extreme about Black Friday shopping, though. Instead, people will arrive at the stores as early in the day as possible. The doorbuster items will sell quickly. Those who start shopping in the afternoon risk missing out.

Bring a Friend
It simply isn’t possible for you to cover the entire store all by yourself. The best way to handle this is to bring a friend with you. Take the time to divide up the shopping list before you go. That way, one of you can hit the toy aisles, while another heads to electronics.

This same strategy can be used for online Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales. A team can visit more store’s websites, in a shorter amount of time, than one person can.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
