1. Be Prepared and do your research
Check all the ads to see what stores have the best deals for your holiday shopping. Map out what stores open at what times and make a plan to when and where to stop and shop till you drop.
2. Be prepared to run on little sleep
Getting the best deals around are not easy. You will have to stay up all night or set an alarm for 3 or 4am. Even though we all love our sleep, it is nights and mornings like this where you make fun memories with your friends and family running around Walmart in the middle of the night.
3. Find people crazy enough to battle the crowds with you
This event is definitely a hectic, but fun event. It is always more fun to wonder around stores with crazy amounts of people with a friend. You can laugh, keep each other awake, take turns standing in line, and cry together when you were one person away from getting that big ticket item.
4. Dress for the occasion
Running/comfy shoes are a must. You will be on your feet for hours running around the store to try and grab the hot items before they are gone.
5. Be kind to one another
We all know the Black Friday is a very crazy event, but try your best to be considerate of others. We’ve all heard the stories of people getting hurt during this madness, so be respectful and don’t punch anyone over a TV. Just remember it’s all for fun and scoring a few good deals.
6. Don’t forget about Thanksgiving
Sometimes we get all wrapped up in the deals that are going on the night of and the day after Thanksgiving, that we forget the real meaning behind the holiday. Spend time with your family and be thankful for what you have in life. Oh, and eat as much good food as possible, because it is socially acceptable to excessively over eat on Thanksgiving.
