It’s only three weeks until the shopping extravaganza known as Black Friday. Last year I shared tips on successful Black Friday shopping which we’ve used to find many bargains over the years.
Now it’s time to figure if I want to participate in 2010. Mr. Boomer and I started talking about what we want to get in the near future.
To avoid buying things just because they’re cheap, make a list of what items you may buy at the right price.
We don’t have a video camera and hope the flip type cameras are a bargain this year. It would be great to film our grandson and take on trips.
The thinking is that the iPad will be the big item this year so if you want one, get ready.
The sales aren’t just on Black Friday. We bought a netbook last year at a great price during a pre-Thanksgiving sale at Best Buy. One year later even we are surprised at how much it’s used.
After you know what your want, start scouring ads now.
It was October when I received my first email from Black Friday 2010. They change the year on their site annually so subscribing to their updates will carry over to the next year.
A similar site is Black Friday.Info. Both sites have scans of the actual ads as well as a search database. A good feature is the ability to create your shopping list to print out and take with you.
The shopping day starts at 3 am for at least one store. Will you be shopping on Black Friday?
