Savvy Shopping

The holidays are upon us and for most people in the United States, that means at least a little holiday shopping. For store owners, the day after Thanksgiving is traditionally the biggest shopping day of the year — and it’s called “Black Friday” because it’s the day their books go from red to black.

If you’re a shopper, it can also be an opportunity to score some good deals on the gifts you need to buy. Coupons and markdowns might be even more prevalent this year, since a later than usual Thanksgiving means fewer days in the holiday shopping season and stores want to encourage shopper to buy ASAP.

    hears a tip: make two jars one for spending on for gift ideas. find stuff for your loved ones right the price down and that not you budget then add tax and theirs you budget

    The best way to shop is on Black Friday and go to the less Rual areas. Then find the store that is not as crowded and has good prices. Another tip for how to buy gifts is rate the people your buying for 10-1. Find out the average (per person) you want to pay. Finally find out how much it will cost in total.

    Shop at low price stores for the same quality and also use coupons. They will save you BIG! Sales are also a great opportunity.
