Preparing For Black Friday

Posted on November 14th, 2013 by Discount Debbie

Most people are saying, “Can you believe that we are two weeks away from Thanksgiving TODAY?” However, there are those of us who, if we are being very honest, would also say that they are thinking about the fact that Black Friday (which as morphed into Grey Thursday) also takes place two weeks from today.

Here are a few tips as you begin to think about actually saving money on Grey Thursday/Black Friday:

1. Do Your Homework. Be sure that you look online and in stores now for the items you are interested in. Just get familiar with the prices and keep track of the best prices you’ve found. It’s just like shopping for anything else. For example, I see apples “on sale” for $2.49/lb all the time. However, I know that I can get them for under $2/lb on sale at a couple of places. So, the fact that there is a mailer or sign that declares $2.49/lb as a sale price doesn’t really matter to me.

2. Be Aware Of Doorbusters. The purpose of doorbusters is to get you into the store. Stores don’t normally carry very many of the doorbusting items, intentionally. So, you could skip your Thanksgiving slice of pumpkin pie and head right over to get in line for that special doorbuster or you can look online for a comparable deal and stay home with your family and friends (and pumpkin pie) instead.

3. Online Deals. Experts say that often online deals are better than in-store deals and that Black Friday online deals are better than any deal you could get on Cyber Monday.

4. Do You Need It? Don’t forget that the best money saving is not spending money on something you don’t really need anyway! 😉
