2. Have a Shopping List. Many people go into Black Friday with specific item in mind like a T.V. or new fridge. This helps them to concentrate on getting what you need without being distracted by everything else going on around you. This is the same for clothes. Having a list of items you are looking for or if you're doing your holiday gift shopping, who you're shopping for, will help keep you focused and better your chances of getting what you want. If you go blind it's easy to get overwhelmed by all the mayhem and end up with nothing. So even if your list is a simple as Boots, Jeans, and a new scarf for mom, it will make your day that much easier. This goes for shopping online during Cyber Monday too!
3. Wear Comfy Clothes. To me, shopping on Black Friday is equivalent to going to the gym, so you need to dress the part. This is no time to where your stiletto heels and new wool coat but rather leggings, sneakers and zip up hoodies. Stores get pretty crowded and the last thing you want to happen is your feet being in agonizing pain and you're sweating enough to fill a bath tub.
4. Make Friends in Line. This is when High School Musical's "We're All In This Together" should be on repeat on your phone. Making friends in line is beneficial for a couple reasons. One is those lines can be looonnggggg so having a little buddy that you can chit chat with will allow the time to go by much faster. Also if you need to step out of line quickly for any reason, your new best friend will graciously hold your spot for you preventing you from going way in the back again.
5. Shop Online! A lot of the times we don't even need to leave the comfort of our own beds to get the amazing Black Friday deals. If you know your sizing and is comfortable waiting a few extra days to show off your new look to the office,then online shopping may be the way for you. Cyber Monday is also great if you're comfortable shopping online because often there's even BETTER deals on the Cyber Monday then there is on Black Friday and once again, you don't even need to shower to experience it.
These are just a few tips and pointers on how you can make your Black Friday shopping much more enjoyable. If these tips worked for you or you have others that you like to add to this list please help out your fellow Poor Girls and comment them below!
