Who here loves to go shopping on Black Friday and score all the big wins? I do! (Waving hands wildly in the air.)
I haven’t always gotten to go Black Friday shopping because hubby is not always a fan — and because: budget. But when I do get to go Black Friday shopping, I like to have a plan of attack. Am I right? Where will we start, where will we eat lunch, which items will we buy at each store, and what’s our fallback place to purchase each item in case the first store we go to runs out?
And of course, coordinating my plan with the plans of my friends. That’s important too.
Truly successful Black Friday shopping requires you to have a plan in place. So, this year we’ve got a FREE Black Friday Planner for you! Do us a huge favor and pin this so your friends can find it too! Then just click the link at the end to get your free copy. (Pinning is not required at all – it just helps us keep the coal bucket full at the office. Figuratively speaking of course.)
According to Wikipedia, Black Friday is the day following Thanksgiving Day in the United States (the fourth Thursday of November). Since 1952, it has been regarded as the beginning of the Christmas shopping season in the U.S., and most major retailers open very early (and more recently during overnight hours) and offer promotional sales.
But we all know the truth, right? Black Friday is all about hanging out with our sisters and/or best friends, finding all the amazing deals so we win MOM OF THE YEAR awards at Christmas, and eating out twice in one day! Maybe even three times! That’s the Black Friday we’ve come to know, love, and plan for.
So what’s your plan this year? Know who you are going with? Know what you are looking for? Know what to save for Cyber Monday? Because we’ve got a planning page for that too!
According to Wikipedia, Cyber Monday is a marketing term for the Monday after the Thanksgiving holiday in the United States. The term “Cyber Monday” was created by marketing companies to persuade people to shop online. And I’ve seen some pretty amazing deals online – starting on Black Friday and going on and on through Cyber Monday as well!
On Friday, I’ll be standing in line, but come Monday I’ll be sitting in my cozy chair on-line. And when it is all said and done, I’m hoping I’ll have all or most of my Christmas shopping done and a few things checked off of my own wish list too.
So here’s the deal. We’ve got a free printable Black Friday Shopping Plan for you. It’s got seven pages, which you can print as many times as you need to plan your shopping days – including the one for Cyber Monday.
