How To Survive Black Friday

Feel Good / Mindfulness


Shopping secrets for the biggest sale of the year. 

Black Friday is just around the corner, and we’re here to make sure you’re armed and ready for some of the biggest sales of the year. For the past few years, Black Friday has begun as early as Thanksgiving evening, so it’s important to have a plan of attack if you want to ensure a smooth bargain-hunting experience. From drafting an in-store game plan to browsing for deals from the comfort of your own home, here are five tips to help you find the absolute best Black Friday deals this year.

Make A List

The biggest mistake people can make is to go into Black Friday blindly without a plan. People are already pushing and shoving to get the best deals, so going in without any prep is a guaranteed disaster. Step one is to make a list of people that you want to buy gifts for, and then jot down a couple of specific stores or items that suit their taste. But keep in mind being flexible is incredibly important when it comes to avoiding disappointment.
Many of the biggest doorbuster items are offered in limited supplies. Have a backup (or two…or three) in mind when your first choice is gone. Trust us, planning ahead always pays off. Also, if you’re in the market for a new handbag or a perfect pair of jeans, it’s the time to stock up on items you’ve been eyeing, now at a great price point.

Draft An In-Store Game Plan

Malls are both a gift and a curse for the shopping-obsessed. If you’re going to a shopping center, make sure you have a general idea of where certain stores are, and in what order you want to tackle them. Little things such as store hours shouldn’t be overlooked, as many places open Thursday night and have discounts that run only in a certain time-frame. So grab that mall map, get set, and go.

Get Social

Keep tabs on the stores you love via Instagram, Facebook, or Snapchat. In this digital age, promo codes and ads are promoted on our favorite social channels. You never know if a nifty coupon is lurking on their feed, so don’t forget to check a brand’s social channels to score deep discounts.


Beware Final Sale Items

There’s nothing that makes our hearts beat faster than a sign marked “80% off”. But when it comes to Black Friday, beware of these steep discounts and crazy deals, as many of them are actually a final sale item. This means no returns, no refunds, no exchanges—no exceptions. So if you thought you could skip the line for the dressing room and “just try this on at home,” think twice about that item and make sure you’re positive that you love it (or you know your bestie’s sweater size) before making a commitment.

Don’t Forget About Cyber Monday

Don’t put all your eggs in one basket and spend all of that hard-earned cash in one go. There are still a ton of deals waiting for you on Cyber Monday, straight from the comfort of your PJs. Although you aren’t able to see the products until they get shipped to your door, we’d gladly trade the delayed gratification for slapping on a DIY face mask and shopping online, lazy-girl style, instead.
