Check Online First

 
 

Many of your favorite retailers sell the same items online that they are selling at their local stores.  If the items you are looking for are online, check there first.

Leave The Kids At Home

 
 

Never a good idea to take little ones into crowded stores on Black Friday.  Schedule a babysitter and enjoy your time without the kids!

Be Kind To Others

 
 

Never push, shove, or yell when out shopping on Black Friday. Remember it is the season of giving! Wait your turn and be patient.

Team Up

 
 

Take a friend or family member with you.  Two people can get a lot more work done than just one!
