Whether you decide to take advantage of the Black Friday sales, or plan to shop online, don’t let your budget get ahead of you. Decide on what exactly you want to buy before heading into the stores. Don’t go in with an open pocketbook and no plan. If you’re not brave enough to tackle the crowds, skip the stores and shop online. Here you won’t get caught up in the frenzy and you’ll be able to make logical decisions. Or, wait until after Christmas. If that TV, new outfit, or tablet can wait, then you may find a better deal after Christmas. Black Friday is just the start of the season. Don’t get hooked on the hype so soon. Stop, take a breath, and think about every purchase you make.
If you think the lure of the ads is just too much and are afraid you’ll get pulled in, spend money you don’t have, and regret it later, then just say no. Turn of the TV. Shut down the computer. Ignore the ads. Instead, spend time with your family. Lock up your money and stay true to your budget to avoid the Black Friday hangover. Stick to your budget this season so when January rolls in, you don’t wake up and wonder what happened to all your money.
