Hello everyone and happy Thanksgiving eve! With Thanksgiving comes family traditions, football, pie, and of course, black friday shopping. Despite my love of bargain shopping and sales, I have never been black friday shopping. But this is the year that I will finally get to take full advantage of the ridiculous sales first hand. I am going in, full force, with a game plan. Friday morning I have made arrangements with a licensed driver (my grandmother) to take me at around 5:30 AM to the closest outlets.
Here are the stores where I plan to shop: Kate Spade New York, J crew Outlet, Levi’s Outlet Store, Nike Factory Store, Under Armour and Tommy Hilfiger.
Here are a few new-bee black friday sale tips that I have come across in my hard core research:
-Follow your favorite stores and outlets/mall on Twitter. They will announce special sales here or they may announce the sales first here as well.
-Have an idea of what gifts you actually want to get so that you do not walk out of the mall with three carts full of extremely cheap action figures when you have no one to give them to.
-Dress in layers and wear comfortable shoes, in case you have to grab that last sweater in the clearance bin at the J crew outlet. I plan on wearing Timberlands, leggings, a hoodie and vest and maybe a beanie.
I hope these tips help and have a wonderful Thanksgiving and black friday!
