It’s that time of year again, friends. The day after Thanksgiving, as you very well know, will be mad. Crazed shoppers and attitudes alike will be flying—but if you’re into Black Friday, you’ll be trying to dodge them, and catch some deals. Black Friday can be a whirlwind unless, of course, you’re prepared.

I think everyone tries to prepare the best they can, but having a strategy is everything. Since you’re headed out into the battlegrounds, we thought we’d prep you the best we can. Here are your official hacks for making the most out of you Black Friday shopping.

1. Stick to the Priorities

If you’re someone who’s got a long list of potential buys for Black Friday, know that you’re better off making that list and checking it twice. Mark the items that are high-priority and focus on those. You’ll be a lot less stressed and probably more likely to find what you’re looking for.

2. Plan Ahead

Once you’ve come up with your priority items, it’s time to make a plan. Do your research when it comes to demographics in your area and just how many other people might be looking for that item. Come up with a few places to hit, and have a backup plan.

3. Power in Numbers

You know what they say about two heads being better than one, and in this case, it holds. Being in multiple places at once is not possible (yet). Rally the troops and double your efforts by having multiple people to help with the hunting.

4. Shop Local

Shopping local and staying away from big brands and corporations is likely to save you time and energy. If a local store is participating in Black Friday, there’s probably even a chance they’ll be willing to negotiate. Larger stores don’t make their own rules, but local, small businesses do.

5. Social Media

As part of your strategizing, seek out social media cues and deals. You may even find potential Cyber Monday offerings that will save you the trip on Black Friday. Signing up for newsletters and free subscriptions can go a long way, and provide you with insider information when it comes to future deals.

6. Don’t Fall for the Hype

Without naming any names, there are a ton of businesses that exploit Black Friday to make consumers believe they are participating when there isn’t much of a discount at all. Or, offer regular discounts, available any other time of the year. Know your facts about how much things actually cost and what deals are being offered before the big day.

We’ll see you out there, GR8 friends. Stay safe and happy shopping!
