With the biggest shopping day of the year closing in on us its time to get ready for the craziness that will ensue on Black Friday. There are two ways you can do Black Friday — the hectic way or the relaxing way, you decide.
The Hectic Way to do Black Friday:
If you’re a crazy person then you will get up at 3 a.m. to go stand in line at the store at 4 a.m.. You will bring a thermos of espresso so that you won’t get cold as you wait for the store to open at 6am. Then you will kick and punch your way past the rest of the crazies to look for gifts that those on your shopping list may or may not want. Then spend 40 minutes fighting traffic on your way home. Fun.
The Relaxed Way to Do Black Friday:
Now if you’re sane then your staying home on Black Friday and eat leftover pie at 10 am. Around noon you start shopping by turning on your laptop and then you pick out some relaxing gifts that you know your friends and family will be sure to love. Stop by Clutch and take a nap. Relaxing.
If you choose the Hectic Way then I wish you luck. If you choose the Relaxing Way then pat yourself on the back you made a good decision. I suggest you check out these products on some of my favorite sites to help your shopping even easier. Which means you can take an even longer nap.
