Black Friday, a.k.a. the day after Thanksgiving, can either be a shopping nightmare or a shopping fantasy, depending on who you ask. Some people love the thrill of getting up at 3 a.m. to camp outside of the mall until those glass doors unlock, while others dread the pushing, screaming, sweaty people they’ll need to shove past to grab the best gizmos and gadgets for their loved ones. No matter what your type is, here are some tips for avoiding the madness and making the Black Friday shopping experience as stress-free as possible.
1. Utilize Online Shopping
You don’t need to physically go anywhere to get the Black Friday deals. Online shopping is becoming more and more popular, and it is quite convenient. Most popular retailers will offer their same in-store deals on their websites, but be sure to check ahead of time to make sure.
