Smart 'Black Friday' Shopping

"Black Friday" is a day of  sales at many stores. We can get  good deals on electronics, appliances,clothes and sometimes even cars. 

         But most of us dont know the main reason behind this day..we only think this day is only for shopping.There are many stories about this day.Here is a short brief story..

"During the Indian massacre of 1622, nine of the settlers at Berkeley Hundreds were killed, as well as about a third of the entire population of the Virginia Colony. The Berkeley Hundred site and other outlying locations were abandoned as the colonists withdrew to Jamestown and other more secure points.
     The modern Thanksgiving holiday traces its origins from a 1621 celebration at the Plymouth Plantation, where the Plymouth settlers held a harvest feast after a successful growing season. This was continued in later years.It is celebrated with great dinner.
Black Friday is the name given to the day following Thanksgiving Day in the United States, traditionally the beginning of the Christmas shopping season "

Checking out the deals and shopping smart is the real good way of using the benefits of black friday.

  • Prepare the list of the items you want to buy.Then you compare the 'real cost' and the 'cost on the black friday'.If their is a big difference then you can afford to buy it.
  • You won't be able to get everything on your list, so must save the most money on the largest items.Buy the costliest item which is on your list.
  • Make sure your credit/debit cards are ready for shopping.
  • It's better to avoid kids and old people for shopping.Because leaving them at home will really saves your time.
  •  Figure out how you're going to get to the store, and back. If you're going very early, check the mass transit schedules or the parking situation. 
  •  Some stores have limited quantities and  Some end their sales early.So check this and shop early.
  • The best way to buy instead of standing in the crowd is buying them online.
  This is not the least and the very important thing to be noticed is....Make use of this long weekend.Plan it before and shop early so that you can spend your time with your loved one's.
