Black Friday is a time to get the best deals and for many people, it is the start of the holiday shopping season.
While the 2014 Black Friday shopping event is likely to be a good one this year, if you don’t have a plan you might not be able to get the deals, as many of the best items are only available in limited numbers.
If you want to get everything on your list at a great price this year, use some of these tips to make your Black Friday shopping trip a successful one.
Make A List
Of course you have a Christmas list and maybe even a Black Friday shopping list, but since many stores open at different times and are offering certain items during certain days and time periods, your list needs to be more detailed than the average shopping list. Use Black Friday ads to make a schedule and list. Know what store you want to visit on what day and at what time as well as the items you plan to buy there.

Bring A Group
The best way to tackle a busy store on Black Friday is to bring a group and split up. You can assign certain group members to get certain items and then bring them back to a set point in the store where you can split them up before paying for them. This will ensure that everyone can get the items they want even if the items are spread out across the store and available at the same time.
