Trueblood is the most popular show on HBO and the new movie Twilight, both are about Vampires. I haven’t seen Twilight, but from the previews it looks like a great movie. I’ve been watching Trueblood faithfully and it is intriguing.

Prepare for Black Friday

What is Black Friday?

Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving day. On Black Friday retailers have a massive discount sale. It’s the day for retailers to even out their profits of any losses from January to November sales. Both the retailers and customers benefit from this huge sale.

On Black Friday, expect to be in crowded stores and have a lot of patience you will be dealing with rude, and pushy people. In my past experience, I’ve learned to avoid Black Friday as much as possible by using layaway plans or buy sale items through out the year for my holiday gifts. Yes, I know I may not receive the discount price, but I’ve bought it without all the chaos of Black Friday.

Add the following step to your preparation on sale items. Don’t be fooled with items on sale. Search for the regular price first then look at the sale price here you will determine if the item is actually on sale. Most merchant may advertise a sale, but is it? Yes and No, the item is for sale, but not on sale. You want to save you want discounted prices, so compare, search and be alert.

There is a store that I visit frequently, which I’m not going to mention this particular store has a weekly sale. The sale items are marked with yellow tags with the sale price on it, but the sale price is the same as the regular price. So, how is it on sale? It’s not. This is to confuse the consumers thinking its on sale, but it’s not. Compare, search and be alert.

If there is a need to attend Black Friday prep yourself up with a few steps for this chaotic day.
