So You Wanna Look Like … A Christmas Bow?!?!
This look is inspired by a Christmas Present! Black Friday is less than a week away so it’s time to start the yearly gift giving!
Here are a few tips on how to survive Black Friday.
1) Set a budget! Every year my sisters and I set a limit. It’s easy to get caught up in the whirl of Black Friday and buy too many things (especially when you have a large family). Don’t buy for the sake of buying just because something is on sale. Think about what you really want, set a budget – and do not go over it.
2) Pre-Friday Sales: I personally do not like Black Friday. There are just so many people at the mall pushing and grabbing for everything. It’s stressful and I feel like I need a glass of wine just to prepare for…the large sea of people. If this is the case for you then fear not! Some stores have pre Friday Sales (and there are some online shops that offer exclusive deals). In fact I have almost always done my Christmas shopping before Black Friday
3) Dress Comfortably: If you’re not doing your shopping online dress comfortably. You are going to be doing lots of walking and standing in long lines. Make sure to eat a hearty breakfast that morning as well. Also, I suggest keeping a bottled water in your purse (it gets hot in a crowded mall).
4) Online Shopping: If you want to skip the crowds I suggest online shopping! I am planning on doing all my shopping online this year. Get organized by adding all your Christmas items to a favorites folder (or pinning them to a secret Pinterest board. That way you will be ready to go when it’s time to start buying.
With all this talk of buying it’s important to note that it’s not really the gift that you buy someone. It’s being together and cherishing the fun time with your family and friends this year. Telling someone how important they are in your life is one of the best gifts in the world . 🙂
I hope you all make it through the stress of Black Friday. Just have fun and try not to spend too much money.
