What shows your gratitude more than going out and buying more STUFF? You’ve thought about buying that TV all year long or really just want to get all your Christmas shopping done, but sometimes Black Friday can be intimidating. You know the traffic is going to be atrocious and fighting people to get the perfect sweater does not really sound that appealing, and do the stores *really* starting to open on Thanksgiving day? While there are a lot of weird/intimidating aspects to Black Friday, it’s not completely useless. Not every product will have *amazing* sales, but there are certain categories to keep an eye out for. More expensive items like TVs, laptops, and electronics usually have their best sales of the year. Fitness gear, furniture, toys, jewelry, luggage, and the latest gaming consoles may look like they have good sales, but usually the better sales are at various points in the year. Regardless, don’t enter Black Friday unprepared. Figure out a list of what you want and get out quickly. And girls, don’t worry. We’ve done your research for you, so check out the best deals below.
