Why Moms Need the Web Before Black Friday Shopping Begins

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on November 22, 2010

Tis’ the season for harried moms to start developing their 2010 Black Friday Ad shopping lists and withdrawing their Christmas Club funds. It can be a harrowing experience especially if you have several kids to shop for and deciding on the perfect gift gets harder every year. Budget-conscious moms know that while Black Friday deals can be a great help, it still takes some work to keep holiday gift giving within a family budget.

How Does the Web Help?
While we all wait anxiously for the Black Friday Ads 2010 to appear in the newspaper, busy moms need extra help to get things in order. The Internet is a wonderful resource for moms on a budget who need to save time. Thanks to the magic of the Web, moms can now get a sneak peak at what to expect from retailers during Black Friday 2010.

Advertisements in the newspapers and through mailing circulars typically do not come out in print until the last minute. But through the Internet, moms can get a head start on their research and comparison shopping.

Imagine the Possibilities
As a mom with a full schedule, can you imagine the possibilities of mapping out your shopping strategy for Black Friday Ads weeks in advance? On the Black Friday Ads 2010 site, holiday shoppers can comparison shop the discounts, incentives, and exclusive offers well in advance of the general public. Not only can moms save tons of money on their gift-giving list, they will also save a lot of time and frustrations. Knowing where to go, when to go, and how much you’ll expect to pay can make shopping this year the best time ever.

Make It a Team Sport
With the added advantage of using the Internet to sneak peak the Black Friday Ads 2010, you and your mom friends can make it a true event. Start by visiting the Black Friday Ads 2010 website and check out all of the deals and incentives being offered by the retailers in your area. You can coordinate a list of places you want to visit and the items you want to purchase for all of your holiday shopping needs and divvy up the lists amongst friends. What a time-saver to have your friends tackle part of the job and share in the fun of Black Friday holiday shopping.

Before you even hit the malls, you can set your budget, know what you need, and where to go to get all of your gifts in just one day when the deals are hot. Here are some preparation tips for your Black Friday mom shopping marathon:

Gather Your Friends
Moms in the same circle will often have children of the same age with the same gift ‘wants’. Coordinate with your mom pals on the hot items of the 2010 holiday season.

Get Online
Visit the Black Friday Ads 2010 website. You can browse by stores including major retailers like American Eagle Outfitters, Best Buy, GameStop, Target, Walmart, Amazon.com, and Toys R Us. You can also visit the ad details for husbands and other family member’s gifts from places like Home Depot, Cabela’s, Costco, and Dell.

Make a List
Write down all the places you need to visit to get the things on your list. You can use the website to compare prices to find the best Black Friday deals. Take note of the advertised prices on your list so you can make sure you are getting the right deals.

Divide and Conquer
If you have several friends willing to go the distance on a Black Friday shopping spree, divide the list and assign different retailers to each person with a list of what is needed. Because the prices are available on the deals, you will all have an idea of how much you’ll need to spend.

Get Prepared
If your list has a lot of large items, come prepared with a personal shopping cart that can help you lug your goods to the car. Wear comfortable shoes and layered clothing to help you deal with the congested stores and the long day. Pack some water and quick snacks in your purse to prevent the urge to spend more at the food court. To save even more, plan to meet back up with your girlfriends for a picnic lunch already packed in the car.

Black Friday shopping doesn’t have to be a hassle or a headache. Make it a fun time for all of your mom friends by knowing what you need before you go. Stop by the Black Friday Ads 2010 website today to get started a week earlier than the rest of the country.

Have you seen the Target commercial with the lady “in training” for Black Friday… doing curls with the shopping baskets, doing sprints through the stores, and wrapping presents for time? That’s the same prep I do for Black Friday! Bring it on!
