Black Friday – Are the Savings Legit?

We all know that the Christmas shopping season is just around the corner – and if you’ve been smart with our cash and time, you might have already started saving and buying.

If you are like most people – and I bet you are – Black Friday marks the beginning of the shopping madness as we scramble to get gifts. As you know, Black Friday is the ‘start of the Christmas shopping season’ and falls on the Friday after American Thanksgiving.

Up in Canada, we may have had Thanksgiving a month ago, but we’re ready for the deals now. Retailers will be rolling out their best sales for what’s traditionally one of the biggest shopping days of the year.

Are They Deals You Want?

Are you going to get in on the action and start your shopping? Be sure you listen to our previous thoughts on coupons and how that relates to sales.

Remember, a sale is only a good deal if you are going to save money on something you’d want anyways.

Make Your List, Check it Twice

Like anything with cash, some pre-planning helps. Know your budget and gift list before hitting the mall or net. Don’t let sales and prices dictate how much you’re going to spend. Set your limits and stick to them.

That can reduce some holiday stress and help you spend more time with your loved ones (instead of stressing about how to buy and pay for their presents).

Get ready for Black Friday in more ways then one. Before you check out the deals, make sure you know how much you can spend and who you’re buying for.
