Last week I wrote all about how we were on a mission to transform Black Friday into Sweet Friday and skip the shopping all together to celebrate sweet moments with our friends and family. I heard from so many of you who LOVED this idea, and I’m right there with you. But I also heard from heaps of Cookies who did have their eye on a few items they knew were going to be on sale this Friday and wanted tips on how to handle the crowds and chaos without blowing their spending plans. So in that spirit, I present this round-up of Smart Cookie approved must-haves that are guaranteed to prevent a holiday spending hangover.
Is it just me, or does Black Friday mania need to calm down? Call me crazy, but the thought of kicking off the holiday season inline at 5:00 am at a bigbox store to get 60% off items I don’t really need for myself or anyone I love. It just doesn’t seem right, or worth it for any price.
Eggnog, cozy fires, decorations and shopping! It is such a gorgeous time of year to celebrate what really matters. And as a Smart Cookies you’ve worked so hard all year to make smart choices and work towards your financial goals, and this is time of year when its easy to get caught up and spend more than we mean to. We can’t help it, if we’re giving people, right!? But this holiday season you can show those you love the most just how much you care without spending a ton.
I have to be honest, the thought of shopping on Black Friday gives me a bit of anxiety. The crowds, the chaos, is it really worth it?
Truth is, yes if you’ve been eyeing a few select items, heading out of black Friday might be worth it, but there are also some items that are better to buy in the weeks leading up to and after Black Friday.
So to save you money, time, and anxiety we bring your our Black Friday survival guide.
