It is always a good idea to avoid the stores during the Black Friday sales. I have to back myself up, so please listen to what I have to say.
I know Black Friday has its merits. It has those attractive discounts that make christmas shopping more affordable. I do not deny that. Black Friday is the day where we all get those expensive shoes that we have been eyeing. That good quality belt we can’t really afford.
However, some of us do not have long shopping lists. We do not have things we have been waiting all year to buy. We have no plans. No budgets. Yet, we stroll through the mall (or shopping centre, depending on where you are from) and find ourselves buying everything because it is cheaper. We end up spending more than we planned.
For those without plans, please stay home. Avoid regrets. Avoid impulse buys. Be smart.
