Black Friday Tips
It’s that time of the year again. Where everything you can buy becomes more affordable than ever. Black Friday is the time of the year when there are great deals, probably the best deals of the year.
Whether you feel like shopping online, shopping at stores, or simply relaxing at home, you can always feel the holiday vibe.
Here are some Black Friday tips from Roses Only to help you celebrate this special holiday.
Shopping Online During Black Friday
Black Friday is one of the best times of the year to save tons of money especially if you're buying gifts for people. And shopping online is the most convenient way to do it. Here are tips for you to maximize your online shopping experience.
Create A List Ahead Of Time Before You Buy
You should first know your wants and needs. It can be really easy to end up buying stuff that you just want over the things that you actually need on Black Friday. If you have a list ahead of time, then you can stay focused and not get distracted by so much advertising and noise coming at you.
Compare The Prices
Write down the expected price for the product online, so you'll know how much savings you're getting.
Just because it's a Black Friday special doesn't mean it's the best price online or of all time. Doing your research on pricing would help you know if you're getting a good deal or if you're just getting caught up in the hype.
Research The Products
Sometimes, retailers would discount products that aren't that great, because of having extra inventory of it. It may be tempting to take this incredible deal, but the product might be terrible, since they may just be clearing it out.
So make that list, bookmark the pages that you like. Do as much research as you can and read the reviews to be more assured of the quality.
Look For Coupons And Discount Codes
What's cool about online shopping is sometimes, you can stack the savings by Googling the brand name, the website name, and coupon code. So now you have the Black Friday price plus the coupon you get online. And now your saving goes crazy.
Add To Cart Early
Stocks of products would go to zero very fast on Black Friday. Here’s a pro tip, add to cart previously and then check your cart at 12 am, because that’s when the price drops. Proceed to checkout before the stocks run out!
Don’t fall asleep from all the turkey!
If You Want To Shop In Stores
If you prefer to have a feel of the store and its products, you might need these tips from Roses Only to help you get ready, since it’s a lot more challenging to shop in crowded malls.
Pick Your Starting Time And Set Your Alarm
The worst thing that you can do is just wake up at 10 am on Friday after Thanksgiving and decide you're going to shop for Black Friday. Well, it's not going to end well because you'll be stuck in so many lines. If you want to do a lot of shopping, it is best to start earlier.
Know Where You're Going
Be familiar with the store layout. Visit ahead of time and take note of where your items are mostly placed. So when the foot traffic becomes heavy, you’ll know excactly where you’re going and you won’t be rattled with all the ruckus. And if you’re driving it’s best to know the shortest route, anticipate the traffic, and narrow parking spaces. Condition your mind and be prepared to shop like a pro this Black Friday.
Dress For The Occasion
You don't need to dress hip on Black Friday. You'll have to prioritize comfort over style. Equip yourself with the most comfortable top you can wear.
Women can wear long skirts and use big scarves or sarongs so they can try on clothes without needing the fitting room (some actually do this), use fanny-packs or any other hands-free bag, and have a pony-tail holder to keep cool.
Men can wear a nice pair of shorts and sneakers. Any dress that can keep you comfortable, you can wear them on Black Friday.
Prepare Your Digital Coupons
Have those coupons ready. It’s a lot more convenient having them on your phone than on paper. Make sure all your coupons are useable on Black Friday!
Clear Your Mind After Shopping
Now you're done gathering your loot and you're all tired from all the shopping. A great idea is to download a meditation app to get you back on track and spend more time with your loved ones.
If You Want To Stay At Home
You don’t always have to shop on Black Friday. There are many people who actually avoid that. The traffic is also unbearable. Most people get a four day weekend. And it’s the perfect time to stay home and unwind. You’ll be using those free time to nurture your relationship with your family, friends, and yourself.
Take A Rest
You deserve it! Give yourself some time to recharge. Whether by having a beauty rest, taking a warm bath, meditating, exercising or listening to music, Black Friday one of the best days to find your inner peace.
Eat With Your Loved Ones
Whatever you’re craving for lately, indulge in them! Make cooking a family activity, enjoy Thanksgiving leftovers, or have food delivered so you can avoid Black Friday traffic. Make sure you’re enjoying the moment with your loved ones!

Monopoly is also popular-- some families even have tournaments!
Sportier families can play football in nearby parks or in their own backyards.
