Who else has already been shopping the Black Friday sales?! While it used to be that the best deals didn’t start until Black Friday, I’m seeing more and more stores throwing their best deals out earlier and earlier.
Before getting into my Black Friday info, I thought we’d touch on this pretty outfit first:) This outfit remixes the jeans from Tuesday’s post, along with the jewelry. I swapped my booties for OTK boots, and layered my blush faux fur jacket over my favorite cami. This look is casual chic for the holidays. You can look put together but still be comfortable.
And now for what all the Black Friday info:
MY #1 BLACK FRIDAY SHOPPING TIP
I’ve shopped Black Friday for many years (14 or so???). I’ve watched Black Friday move from Black Friday until the week before Black Friday, and I’ve watched the sales move from just in-store to online. Now, I mostly shop online for Black Friday. After all of the time I’ve invested in scoring Black Friday deals, my #1 tip for Black Friday shopping is to scan the ads and cart what you can before the sale even begins.
Carting means you add items you want to your cart, but you don’t checkout right then. Instead, you wait for the Black Friday sale to hit and the discount to be applied to what’s in your cart. Now, this doesn’t work with everything. If something is a special Black Friday item, then you’re probably not going to be able to cart it before hand. You should be able to cart many regular items that are simply a percentage off.
Once you cart, be sure that youre account is signed in and your payment info has already been entered. The more quickly you check out, the better chance you have at getting what you want:)
