Holiday Hustle: Black Friday Shopping Tips

lak-black-fridayAs we’re picking out our recipes for our Thanksgiving Day meals and and dreaming about stuffing our faces, we’re also thinking about how to stuff our shopping carts with Black Friday deals. It’s always part of the Thanksgiving weekend activities, but Black Friday has become a force of its own — what person doesn’t want to take advantage of a good deal? Of course we want you to get the best deals, so we came up with a list to give you a competitive edge. Here are 5 Black Friday shopping tips.

Shift Away from Friday While some people are excited to get up at 3am to get a good deal on a cute dress or toys to wrap to stuff a few stockings, not everyone has that kind of drive. For those who don’t plan to bust down any doors, you too can get a few deals — and you don’t have to wait until Friday. A lot of retailers have early bird deals you can take advantage of long before the turkey hits the table. Start looking for promotions the Monday before Thanksgiving — they may not say “Black Friday,” but a deal by any other name would smell as sweet. And what’s sweeter than sleeping in on Black Friday knowing you already have your shopping done?

lak-black-fridayTweet! Pin! Post! Stay connected to social media! Retailers post deals and sales constantly all Thanksgiving weekend. One tweet could lead you to a gift you didn’t know you needed at the price you didn’t think could go so low. Whether it’s on your phone, tablet or desktop, keep a lookout for the right deal for you from the Monday before Thanksgiving all the way through Cyber Monday.

Focus If you haven’t already put together your holiday shopping list, now’s the time to do it. Have it handy so you know what you’re looking for when you’re being showered with deals. There are so many items coming at you at once, but you can only buy so much — a list helps you stay on the straight and narrow path to a happy holiday.

The Aftermath Get familiar with return policies! If you impulsively buy something just because it’s a good deal, it doesn’t mean you need it or have a use for it, and you may not be able to return it. If you know what you’re getting into, you’re reducing the risk of getting stuck with a pile of products you don’t want.

Don’t Stop Believing Even if you think you’ve gotten everything you wanted from your Black Friday experience, there may be more deals ahead. Just because you didn’t get to the store or click on the right product fast enough doesn’t mean you’ve lost out. Keep checking back for new deals being rolled out later in the day or week.gift-app

I know this year I will not be out shopping the day after Thanksgiving, “Black Friday.”  It is way too crowded for me and way to stressful to deal with.  Cyber Monday does definitely seem to be the way to go.  Get all the holiday shopping done with a click of my finger while I am in cozy pajamas drinking warm hot chocolate.  But my heads up to you all is there are great deals to be had before Cyber Monday and going forward.  Lakeside updates their online only shopping deals all the time, there is the new deal of the week, customer favorites and new items at unbelievable prices.  Don’t be stressed out the day after Thanksgiving, get it all done before then and that is something to be thankful for.  Happy Shopping!
