Black Friday Shopping/Gift Advice!!


November is filled with many great things. School breaks, Thanksgiving, time with family and friends, and shopping!!!!! Black Friday is a great opportunity to get necessities, but it also can get very distracting. Here is your guide to making this year’s Black Friday shopping the most efficient one yet!

Stores with good deals and gift opportunities:

Bath and Body Works

-makes good holiday gifts

-various school or home necessities

Charlotte Russe

-great deals on basic clothing

American Eagle

-has good deals if want to buy more than one thing

-A lot of buy-one-get-one deals

Forever 21

-gifts for others

-necessities for yourself

Best Buy

-good deals on electronics

Cell Phone companies usually have great deals for Black Friday

Stores to avoid:


-Even though it may seem strange, Target usually does not have great deals but stays extremely crowded anyway. It is easy to get distracted in this store and it is not worth the line. Pick a different day for the target.

Kohls, JCPenney, Popular/standard department stores

These stores may have good deals and good gift opportunities, however, the stores will be incredibly crowded and picked over by the time you get there. Instead, I would recommend getting the deals they have online.

Don’t Forget:

Cyber Monday offers great online deals for clothing, electronics, and so much more. Anything you forgot you needed on Black Friday, take a look online for the following Monday.

The following Tuesday is Giving Tuesday. This is a day to give back and give a gift to many important charities.
