Whether you plan to shop this Black Friday or not, you have to admit that there are some really good deals available. If you do plan to brave the stores and malls the Friday after Thanksgiving (or avoid all the fuss and just shop online), here are some tips to keep in mind for holiday shopping that everyone should subscribe to.

Save Early and Know Your Budget

Though it’s a bit late to start saving if you haven’t been, it’s still a tip to keep in mind for next year. What you can do right now is figure out your budget. This helps to ensure that you spend only what you’re willing to spend and lets you know how much money is going to go towards purchases for each person on your list. This will help you narrow your gift search to items within that particular price range.

Do Your Research

Once you decide what to get someone, or once you know the budget for that person at least, you can begin to research gifts within that range and can look for the best deal. Whether shopping in store or online, it pays to do some research to make sure you’re not paying the full amount.

Have a Plan on Black Friday

Check out catalogs, advertisements, and mail offers and know where you want to shop. Make sure your top shopping destination is your first stop on Friday morning in order to maximize your chances of snagging the best deals there. Don’t oversleep the morning of (the turkey will have probably done its job knocking you out) and make sure you prepare the night before so you’re not looking for your keys at the last second.
