Black Friday 2011 – Ads, Game Plan, Opening Times

 - by Christine

Well, it’s the 1st of November, which means Black Friday is quickly approaching!  I am so excited I can barely stand it! (as usual)

Every year, I make a game plan consisting of the following:  (start making yours now!)

  • Which stores I will go to
  • What time each store opens
  • What items I will buy at each store
  • Map or written directions on where each item is in the store

I’m also “crazy” and don’t go to sleep Thanksgiving night so that I can get to a store and stand in line! 8)
