Stop a Black Friday Breakdown in Its Tracks
Black Friday can be a great time get some holiday shopping out of the way, but it can also be a crazy time that can cause a lot of stress if you let it. Here are some strategies that you can use to prevent letting the rigors of Black Friday like overspending and burnout get to you:
• Have a plan. Write down the items that you plan to buy and the cost of each to prevent wandering aimlessly from store to store and potentially spending too much on unplanned purchases.
• Bring a friend with you to intervene when you feel tempted to buy something that you hadn’t planned on and spend more than you had anticipated.
• If you value spending time with your family during Thanksgiving and can schedule your shopping for another time or do your shopping online, enjoy the time with your family and bask in the joy of roasting marshmallows together and preparing leftovers for the week ahead!
