Black Friday shopping can definitely be overwhelming but with these 5 tips we hope to make this busy and sometimes stressful shopping day a bit easier.

1. Go Online
This is number one because In this day and age you don’t have to head over to the mall and deal with the madness to take advantage of black Friday shopping. Now the offers are available to you from the comfort of your own home. Many of your favourite online stores and boutiques will have their prices slashed on black Friday. Be sure to go online early though, some retailers will kick off their sales at midnight thanksgiving day.

2. Be Prepared
Check out the ads before hand in your Thanksgiving day newpaper and online to get an idea of what deals will be available. Know the stores you want to visit in advance. Trust me, you don’t want to be wandering around the mall on Black Friday. Make a list of exactly what you’re looking for whether it be a 42" HDTV or a pair of skinny jeans to keep yourself focused once in the stores. If you’re shopping for Christmas gifts for family and friends make sure you write down all the people you’ll be shopping for and the items you want to find for them. Also be aware that "leaked" Black Friday ads from all the top stores-Walmart, Target, Best Buy, Kmart, Sears, Kohl’s, Toys R US, etc are all out there floating around online.

Be sure to go online early though, some retailers will kick off their sales at midnight thanksgiving day.

3. Get There Early
Many stores will have greater deals and deeper discounts in the morning before 10 or 11 or noon. Door busters are usually very early in the morning, sometimes as early as 5am! If you are shopping for big-ticket, electronic items go for those first as those items are usually available in limited quantities and will sell out first.
4. Be Comfortable
You may be pushed in crowds or waiting in line in excess of an hour! Opt to wear sneakers instead of heels and comfortable clothes. Eat something before you leave you don’t want your stomach to be growling as you run to grab the last iPhone on sale. Bring a bottle of water. You may have to wait outside so make sure you wear layers to keep you warm and also so you can take some items off once inside.
5. Shop Smart
Just because it is on sale doesn’t mean you should buy it, especially big-ticket, expensive items. Many times items on sale will include undesirable brands and refurbished items. Make sure you do your research on the products and brands that you really want and that you know will last you in the long run. Try not to impulse shop.
