              Set yourself a budget and stick to it. After you have decided your budget, make a list of items that you want to buy and write the items you want the most at the top of the list. This way you can keep focused and find the lowest prices for the items on your list. You could also visit stores earlier during the week or the weekend before; to make note of the previous prices of the items that you are interested in and take mental notes of where the items are located in the store so that you can find them quicker whilst navigating the crowds. Also, it might be beneficial to take a backpack full of items to help you. This backpack can contain simple items such as your shopping list, some snacks and some drinks.

The late November weather can be very cold, so it is important that you stay warm, especially if you’re planning on queuing up outside the night before. Make sure you wear a jacket, such as our Black Quilted Jacket, which would look great with our Mid Stonewash Straight Fit Jeans.

Your choice of shoes is also very important. During Black Friday you’re probably going to be standing a lot of the time, so wearing a comfortable pair of shoes is very important.

4. Stay Inside

If shopping outside in crowded high streets and shopping centres isn’t for you but you still want to get involved in the Black Friday sales don’t worry, there is a simple solution, shop online instead.

Many retailers also offer their Black Friday deals to their online customers and many online stores don’t have physical stores to purchase from.If you don’t use a price comparison app on your Smartphone, online shopping makes price comparison even easier; you can check the prices of many products without having to leave the store. Just open a new tab check prices on a different website.

Another benefit to staying inside and doing your Black Friday shopping online is that you can browse multiple websites at once. In a physical store, you’re restricted by the store you are currently in and the stores close to you. Online, a new store is just a few clicks away.
