It is that time of year again. The time of year when people camp outside of the stores just to be the first one in to get that unbelievable bargain being advertised. The time of year when with a little preparation and planning, just about all of the holiday shopping can be completed in just one day. Yes, we are talking about the day after Thanksgiving, better known as Black Friday. On Black Friday there are so many deals, that the only downfall is trying to determine just which stores to go to first. Stores have already released their ads for Black Friday, and the potential savings on this day are tremendous.
Usually, if there are certain items that you want, you have to look at the time frame when these items will be offered. While many stores will begin opening their doors at 3 a.m. or 4 a.m. on Black Friday, a few stores like JC Penny and Wal-Mart, will begin their Black Friday specials on Thanksgiving Day. Of course, at Wal-Mart, the popular items, like electronics, will not be available until 12:01 a.m. on Black Friday. Some stores are also offering some of their deals online so that customers can bypass the mass hysteria that accumulates when physically present.

The secret to success on this day is knowing exactly what you want to get, then trying your hardest to get in and get out, so that you can move on to the next store. There is bound to be crowds and lots of traffic on this day, but the many bargains make it all worthwhile. Happy saving!
