*I recommend also looking at the Ad Scans that are linked, I didn’t include duplicate sales*

As a thrifty shopper, I want to pass on a few of my tips for setting out on Black Friday:
- Plan ahead: Plan your route, the stores you will hit based on priority, and what you will buy. Sales are made clear weeks before the actual day, so it’s best to plan so that you can get everything you want at the lowest price before it’s sold out.
- Have a backup plan: Big items sell out incredibly quickly. Be prepared to hunt for that half price console.
- Go early to get the best savings!

 

Good luck next Friday, and happy shopping!
