Tips For Smart Black Friday and Cyber Monday Shopping

November 22, 2018

Black Friday and Cyber Monday are undoubtedly the pre-Christmas of Christmas, and Walmart and Target are like a kids playground on this day. You think to yourself, I’ll just go for Christmas shopping and get my “needs,” only if I really need it. But everything looks like a necessary purchase when prices are slashed in half. So how can we make conscious buying decisions during this season of spending?

 

Plan Your Purchases

There are several blog sites and catalogues that show you exactly what you can anticipate spending ahead of time. Set up your must need purchases and a budget for them before you hit the stores. Not only will this help to keep you on track but it will make your shopping experience run smoother. Black Friday can be an overcrowded nightmare, and the goal is to get in and get out.

 

Quality Items Only

Just because it’s cheap doesn’t mean it’s worth the money. What’s the longevity of the purchase? If it’s something with a quick expiration date, then it may not be worth the purchase. Instead, thing of quality items that will extend longer than the dollars spent on it.

 

Do You Have Something Similar Already?

Do you already have a blender but see one that has more button functions? Or do you see yet another cute little black dress on sale? If you already have a perfectly functioning item or outfit, then there’s no reason wasting coin.

 

What Purpose Does It Serve?

Sometimes something being cute is a purpose in itself, specifically if it is a cute item that you actually will use down the line. But if it’s something that is cute but you have no idea what you’ll do with it’s simply not worth it.

 

Can It Be A Christmas Gift To Someone?

Why wait until December to start shopping when you can get gifts on sale now? Toys for the kids in your family and kitchenware for your grandmother on Christmas are definitely worth it purchases. Heck, even treat yourself to a Christmas gift. But remember, if it’s a gift for you make sure it serves a purpose, is if quality, and something unique.
