Black Friday Shopping Survival Guide

By now, you know I’m the first to dive into a bargain, but the Black Friday mayhem becomes less appealing when the news headlines are of people getting trampled. Personally, I’m a Cyber Monday kind of chick. The deals are just as good, no long checkout lines, and you can shop from the comfort of your own home [or office]… It’s a win, win!

If you do decide to conquer the Black Friday crowds, keep your smart phone handy and take a minute to download the TGI Black Friday app. The app is free, and you can easily browse the store ads, find all the deals, and create a wish list. It’s a must-have for getting the best deals, and will be extremely helpful during your shopping journey.

Stray away from the mainstream and department stores like Best Buy, Toys R Us, and Macy's [to name a few]. Head to some stores many won’t think of, and you'll still be able to partake in Cyber Monday for any purchases you missed as your plan-b!

Francesca's has become one of my favorite boutiques, and new locations are popping up everywhere. Shop in stores to take advantage of their BOGO 50% off sale, or online for 25% your entire purchase. A little treat for yourself never hurt!
REI is having a huge sale where you can save up to 30% off. It's worth checking out if you're looking for a great gift for your handsome outdoorsman. I strongly encourage you to shop online first to check out their REI Oulet section online, which has savings up to 70% off. You have nothing to loose with free shipping and returns!
I know you have a Pintrest board of DIY projects you want to do, so take this weekend to stock up on all the supplies you need. This is perfect if you are planning on making some Christmas gifts, or you want some new holiday d├ęcor. Head over to Michael's where they have coupons for Thursday, Friday, AND Saturday. If you are in need of a Christmas tree, be there on Thursday to get their 50% off door buster deal… no need to wait for the post-holiday markdown!
