Planning + Preparing = Black Friday Success!
With the right plan and preparation, this Black Friday can most certainly be a successful one for you! Don’t miss out on the great deals that the day will have to offer.
Let’s take a look at some of LBL’s tips on effectively planning for Black Friday:
Set a budget
Knowing exactly how much you would’ve spent by the end of Black Friday is a step that not only sets the foundations for the day but also guides the approach you have towards your buys.
Nail down exactly which fitness items you wish to have by the end of Black Friday and designate a set budget which aims to cover the purchasing of your desired items!
Designate separate budgets
Black Friday is a great opportunity to buy health and fitness items on the cheap, but it’s also a chance to get some present shopping done in preparation for the festive season! So, designated a budget followed by separate budgets that are dedicated for different people and purposes!
Check pre-Black Friday prices!
You may be asking does this really matter? Well, the answer is yes! Checking prices before Black Friday can indicate which offers are the best ones! So, if you’re looking for bargains, make sure that the prices you pay actually are bargains!
Do your research
Black Friday is a global phenomenon but in no way are all stores obliged to offering Black Friday deals. So, ensure to do your research so that you know exactly which stores/sites will offer deals…don’t fall into the trap of expecting everyone to simply offer amazing and unmissable deals! Keep an eye out for updates and announcements.
Plan exactly which items you want to buy
Whether you screenshot items, bookmark pages or note down product names, it’s super important to enter Black Friday with completely knowing exactly what it is that you want to buy. This will save you both time and uncertainty on the actual day.
Have backup options
It’s pretty much a given that with countless people swarming both shops and websites in the hunt for extremely attractive deals, there will always be the likelihood that the items you planned on securing may not still be available by the time you get to them. With this in mind, it’s important to have a set of alternative options that you can consider in the situation that something happens to be unavailable.
Organisation is key
An organised shopper is a clever shopper…be organised! Approach Black Friday knowing exactly what you want, stick to budgets and avoid impulse purchases. Also, ensure that you keep all receipts just in case any future complexities come into play!
Prepare, Or Prepare To Fail
With a proper plan and the right preparation strategy, anything is possible! So, before the 26th of November 2021, make sure to prepare and know exactly how you’re going to approach and manage the day. Also, keep an eye out for our own Black Friday LBL deals!
