Are you terrified of shopping on Black Friday and Cyber Monday? If you are, look no further! I am here to get you through what is probably the craziest shopping weekend of the year. I know it can seem extremely overwhelming, sorting through different deals and websites to get the best gifts for your loved ones this holiday.
I am usually the last minute shopper. I don't do anything in advance, and I scramble on the week of Christmas, basically lose my mind for a few days, but at the end of the day I get it done. The past few years have been a different story. It's hard to be social media present, and not partake in either of these glorified shopping holidays.
This year especially, I did a lot of planning in advance. I listed all of the sales I was interested in, and wrote down the percentages and coupon codes for each. I then made a list of everyone I had to shop for, and then planned accordingly. I don't shop in stores anymore and I would much rather shop online so this weekend is definitely much easier while sitting in the comfort of your own home. Since most online shops honor Black Friday online as well, it's a win-win on both ends! Here are some of my tips for shopping this weekend.
- Stay organized, and make a list of every shop you love that's participating
- Make a list of everyone you need to shop for so you don't forget anybody!
- Use social media (lots of stores announce their deals early on, so make sure you keep an eye out)
- Stock up on coffee + snacks if you're hitting the stores, it's a busy day out so be prepared to fuel your day!
In the past I have done the early bird shopping on Black Friday, and although it wasn't my favorite- it was still pretty fun. There's an adrenaline rush that comes with shopping in a store where everyone is on a mission. This year, it's all going to be done on my recliner at home. Nothing like relaxing, doing some shopping and setting up Christmas decorations.
If you're like me and you can't wait to get all of the good deals, make sure to check out Office Depot's deal center to snag the best deals out there. They also offer free shipping on any orders over $35. Also if you're feeling fun make sure you #Elfyourself on their site as well. I already elfed Oliver, and I can't stop watching it and laughing! It's pretty hilarious and it'll make anyone you share it with smile.
