November 28, 2014: Maximize Black Friday
Is it worth it to brave the crowds today? I have your answer coming up!
While it’s true that you can find some of the best deals of the year today, you also have to take some other factors into account on Black Friday.
First of all, think of the lines and traffic! Is it worth it for you to give up sleep, travel time and gas just to get a good deal on a sweater?
I will admit, today is one of the best day to score amazing prices on electronics, but you often have to be one of the first in line in order to do so. If you prefer to maintain your sanity, wait until 10am or so to hit the stores. Sure, some of the hottest deals may be gone, but I’ve still been able to find plenty of what I needed at this time (like office supplies, clothing and kids’ toys) and the crazy crowds seem to be gone by this time.
Whatever you decide to do on Black Friday, make sure it doesn’t detract from the gratitude you embraced the day before.
