Get some sleep: A huge takeaway from the previous Black Friday’s is that shoppers will get up extremely early to beat the massive lineups. How early? Shoppers have been known to get up as early as 3AM to get in line at 4:30AM. Therefore, go for an intense run the night before and tire yourself out. You’ll need to go to bed early in order to get up early the next morning, and most importantly: To be able to function properly the next day.
Bring a girl: While girls are your competition, teaming up with them will definitely help you shop more efficiently and effectively on Black Friday. The reason being is that they’re shopping veterans; they’re extremely organized as lots of them have probably prepared weeks before hand by building lists of their stores that have the sales, while cross referencing by their clothing products by colour and size and all of this crazy hyper-organized stuff.
