Make Your Black Friday Shopping Plan and Save


If you’re wanting to save money this holiday season, shopping on Black Friday is a must. The biggest deals of the year come out on Black Friday on toys and games, electronics, clothes, accessories, and more. If you have wish lists, get them organized, and get ready to make your Black Friday shopping game plan to save the most money you possibly can. All it takes is a little planning, and mapping out which deals you really want to be able to take advantage of on Black Friday.


Do you have kids to shop for? One of the easiest things that you can do is to shop from their wishlists. If you have kids, you can help them create wishlists at popular stores like Toys R Us, Target, Walmart, and others. Once kids see the holiday toys catalogs come out, they’re all about circling the photos of the toys and games they really want. Take the catalog or flyer, and then add the circled items to the wishlists. Some stores even have wishlist apps that you can download to your smartphone. One of the hottest holiday toys is the Shopkins collection. Toys R Us will have up to 20% off Shopkins, or Buy 1, Get 1 50% off. They’ll also have a free shipping deal. When you purchase Shopkins or other toys from the child’s wishlist, it’ll automatically show as a purchased gift, and then others won’t need to look for that toy. It’ll help the whole family keep track of who has bought what, and for whom.

Looking for the best deals ahead of time is a smart plan of action. Once you have the list of gift ideas you’d like to look for at hand, you can start scouting deals online. Shopping in store might sound like fun. Sure, you can call up your gal pals or best bud, or maybe even your spouse, and burn the midnight oil while you chug latte after latte, but do you really want to deal with the crowds, potential fights, and the traffic? Skip it all by staying home and shopping online. There will be just as many great deals online as there will be in-store, and tons of merchants will offer free shipping, which will just sweeten the pot. Shop from the comfort home home, in your nice warm pajamas, and brew your own frothy coffees from your Keurig.


If you have electronics in mind for gifting this season, Best Buy is your best bet to save on iPads. You can get $100.00 off an iPad Mini 4. Best Buy also has a great selection of large and small appliances, home entertainment electronics, small devices like tablets and notebook computers, etc. Video games are always a great gift option, and there’s a ton of excitement around the NES by Nintendo. Disney Infinity game sets and figures are being discontinued, so if you’re wanting to round out someone’s collection this holiday season, stock up on those figures/game pieces.

Toys and electronics are some of the most sought after holiday gifts. When you know where to find the best deals, you’ll have no trouble getting your hands on the gifts that’ll make them smile this holiday season. You’ll have a heart filled with joy as you give those gifts you worked hard to purchase, and you’ll feel a sense of pride knowing how much money you saved. Maybe you could put those savings toward a fun trip in the new year!
