Make the most of your Black Friday Shopping Trip - Shop with a plan

Before going out for those Black Friday deals you need to have a plan.  Decide how much in total you want to spend.  Make a list of everyone you need to buy for -- listing the gift you need to purchase and a realistic amount of money you can spend on that gift.  To cut down on stress you must keep on budget.  A few days before, do your research online & using flier/sale inserts.  Black Friday is not the best time to go out just to browse. To maximize your savings you have to go shopping with a plan.  Write down next to each person's name the store that has the best deal for the item needed & the time frame they are offering the sale price on that item.  Look at your list and decide what stores to go to based on their sales time and location.  Write down the order you are going to shop the stores.  By creating this list, and sticking to it, you can arrive at the store, go in, go directly to what you are looking for, purchase it, and move on to the next store.
