With Thanksgiving just days away, many dedicated shoppers are preparing for the most important day of the year, Black Friday. It is the one day where shoppers can run rampant through the stores and grab as many deals as they can find.

The stores open at 6 a.m., so one might want to leave their family dinner a little early if they are in need of a special deal.

Black Friday shopping is not just some silly tradition, but some see it as an art form because in order to make it through the night, one must have skills and patience to score the biggest bargains.

The first trick every shopper must use it to make a prioritized list. When making your list of items you need to buy, list them first by store and then by order of importance. This will put the “must find” items at the top so you can first focus on finding them as you visit each store.

Once you have your list ready, decide which stores you will need to visit first. One should start with the one that item that is a must-have item. Shoppers can then figure out which ones to stop by after that based upon your list or a route.

It is recommended to put deodorant on your socks to help with sore feet and use the restroom at specific places. By doing so, one can guarantee a more comfortable experience that will make shopping a breeze.
