When you do your Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping don’t just think of things for the upcoming holidays — think long-term!
Many sales are at their best on these days. Black Friday kicks off the big end-of-the-year holiday shopping frenzy and lots of people use it as an opportunity to stock up on gifts for the coming season.
But you can also take advantage now and buy items for events and purposes throughout the year. That’s right, you should think long-term when you plan out your Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping.
Many a time has passed where I thought I’d see an item on sale again but it ended up not being as good as the Black Friday or Cyber Monday price. Damn! Missed out.
Of course, for this to work you have to have money in your budget to buy extra now for the rest of the year. It’s silly to put great deals on credit if you are going to end up paying credit card interest later on.
If you think out it and plan well, buying now can save you money, and time, for the upcoming year.
