Black + Friday = Nirvana

Ok, 16 days until...The BIGGEST shopping day of the year.
I wanted to give you ample notice so that you can create a strong plan of attack for Friday, November 26th...aka Black Friday!

I have found this site (which updates each year) to be very helpful: www.blackfriday2010.com
What I like about it is the various "leaks" to deals they tell you about, and even a new iPhone app which helps you identify the best deals in your areas. Very very cool.

A few tips for the big day, and I know I have written about this before, but good to review:
  1. Easy access shoes (slip on and off). Nothing worse than having to tie or zip shoes when trying on something quickly.
  2. Bring snacks and water. If you are serious about the Black Friday deals, you need to be up and out at 5am. Which means no time to worry about a leisurely breakfast.
  3. Be realistic about what you want to buy. I don't recommend shopping for "whatever you find" this day- Black Friday is about seeking out an item (or 2) that is significantly discounted. Go there and purchase.
  4. Go with people you like. It's a crowd heavy day: you should bring along someone(s) who will rally, not complain that you're actually participating in the madness.
Here's my two favorite comrades for Black Friday!
