Fuel Up for Black Friday Shopping

If you're going to brave the Black Friday crowds today, be sure and eat a good breakfast before you go. If you camp out at your favorite store or mall the night before, bring along plenty of high-protein snacks. Experts warn shoppers to avoid mall food and stick to fruit, nuts, coffee, bottled water and protein bars.

Other Black Friday survival tips include:

  • Get some sleep before hitting the shops.
  • Make a list of your most-wanted items and the stores that have the best deals on those items.
  • Resolve to stick to a pre-determined budget. It's easy to get caught up in the madness and overspend, buying things you don't even want or need.
  • Shop online. Many stores offer their Black Friday deals, and you can score them from the comfort of your own home.
Good luck and happy hunting!
