Tips for shopping on Black Friday:
1. Get there early and wait in line, after all, thats why you are there right? block out a solid 6 hours for line waiting and shopping from 5am to 11am and then take your finds and go out to brunch!
2. Stay focused! Black Friday is about getting deals on specific items, not for browsing. If you want a nice leisurely stroll through the mall, go on another day. Go shopping with a list of what items you are looking for on sale and shop for them ONLY!
3. Shop alone or with a close friend but no kids or family. They will only slow you down and make you miserable.
4. Be safe. No item is worth getting hurt over. If it means that much to someone else then let it go.
