Keep to a budget

It’s been a tough year so remember to stick to a reasonable budget. Consider the well deserved treats when you’re working out how much you are able to spend, and go from there. Make a list, do the calculations, job done.

Be strong-willed

You might try to outsmart Black Friday but it might end up outsmarting you. Top tips; use your judgement and keep your eye on the prize, stay cool and reserved, and just think, you deserve that pair of Air Force 1’s.

Timing really is everything

Black Friday isn’t going to wait until you’re ready to bag up a couple of bargains. Some of the best Black Friday offers start at midnight so overload on caffeine, because it could be a long night.

If you failed Black Friday

It happens. If you feel like Black Friday shopping has been a total fail and you’ve come away empty-handed, don’t panic, you’ve got the whole weekend to try again. Cyber Monday is another chance to get involved in all the flash sales and discounts. So if Black Friday just wasn’t your time to shine, you’ve got a second shot to smash the sales.
