As I’m writing this, I’ve got my Pandora Christmas music station on. I promised myself I’d wait until after Thanksgiving, but it’s hard not to get in the holiday spirit while working on holiday content! Today I wanted to share some of my best Black Friday shopping tips, since I’m apparently the odd one out because I absolutely love Black Friday. Ya’ll, I’ve got my Black Friday system down pat!

Black Friday Shopping Tips:
- DO YOUR RESEARCH BEFORE YOU SHOP // Each year, I like to go through all of the sales before I start shopping to get an idea what’s going to be on sale, what I actually need to buy, and which stores have the best sales. I try to do this a couple days ahead of time when some stores begin to release their Black Friday ads. P.S. I’ll have a complete Black Friday sales guide here on Courtney in Couture tomorrow!
- KNOW WHAT YOU NEED // And stick to it! I like to make a list beforehand of specific things that I’m looking for because the sheer amount of sales can be a bit overwhelming. I find if I know exactly what I need it makes shopping all the deals a LOT less stressful.
- SHOP ONLINE AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE // On Black Friday, I do almost all of my shopping online so that when I go out to the stores I don’t have to fight crowds or wait in line for 45 minutes to check out. When I do hit the store’s I’ve got everything I actually needed ordered, and if I see something else that catches my eye there’s a lot less pressure to make sure I grab it!
