One of my favorite things to do on Thanksgiving – besides overindulging in pumpkin pie – is pouring over the Black Friday ads.
In years past, I used to scour the deals WEEKS ahead of time, come up with a strategic game plan for hitting as many stores as possible, as early as possible, and as painless as possible.
While that was definitely fun, my shopping technique is a bit different nowadays. Instead of looking what’s on sale first, now I write a list of what we’d like to give and to whom, and then what store has it for what price.
I’ve found that this method makes it MUCH easier to not only stay within budget, but it’s so much more practical than my previous method of standing in line at 4am and freezing to death.
Being a foodie, I love to give foodie gifts. For my own good, I’m semi-banned from Williams Sonoma.
And Cost Plus World Market.
