For all you other frugal loving people out there, one of our favorite shopping days is quickly approaching.
Black Friday will be here before we know it!
And while your kids are sleeping, you’ll be up with your coffee in hand ready to get every great deal you can find.
The most important thing you can do to set yourself up for success is to create a Black Friday Shopping Plan, and a shopping plan for Cyber Monday.
Whatever you decide in your shopping plan process, make sure to go on-line right at midnight and be ready to jump on the top deals.
Because, as we all know, some super sales will get snatched up quickly, and most are first-come, first served.
Or, the Early Bird gets the worm.
That Early Bird needs to be YOU to get the most bang for your buck!

ACTION STEP: Gather all the ads to the stores you love and go down your list comparing prices of the gifts you want to buy until you have a plan ready!
If you are a super couponer, deal-seeking is an art and a science.
If you are an everyday savings kind of person, it’s about finding those perfect match-ups to get the cheapest price possible.
To make your planning WAY easier and a little more organized, I created these FREE printable Black Friday and Cyber Monday Planning Sheets.

Steps for Planning Out Black Friday Shopping and Cyber Monday Shopping:
- Print out a few copies of each list — Black Friday Shopping Plan, and the Cyber Monday Shopping Plan.
- Start writing down who you need to buy gifts for.
- Examples: family, friends, teachers, co-workers, mail person, hairdresser, UPS delivery, coaches, etc.
- Jot down things you know each person would like or that they have an interest in.
- Have a budget in mind for each person on your list, so you don’t overspend.
- The final piece of your planning puzzle is to start digging through your sales ads and papers.
- Keep all of your sales papers with the lowest prices in a folder to take with you, in case you need to verify a price.
- On your worksheets, the lists are broken down into categories.
- Write down the Item/Gift to purchase, the price that was advertised, the section where the item is located, and the Recipient’s name. Check it off!
- Keep everything organized, store-by-store, so you know exactly what you need to buy and where it should be located.
- Don’t forget to write down your store names and hours at the top of the sheet if you are planning to do any in-person shopping. And, be sure to bring a mask in case one is required.
- Print out extra copies of this shopping list for your mom, girlfriend, sister, spouse, or anyone joining you for the shopping day frenzy!
- Tunnel vision should get you in and out with what you came for.
- Stay focused on your list and budget.
If you follow these simple Black Friday and Cyber Monday Shopping Plans you should have a successful and organized shopping experience this year!
