Let’s find out what treats are in store for your Black Friday and holiday shopping this season!


My Top Tips for Snagging Great Deals This Black Friday 

If you’re planning on braving the crowds, grabbing some great deals, and getting your shopping done on Black Friday, here are some of my tips for getting the most out of your shopping trip!



Have a Game Plan

Do your homework ahead of time so you know which stores to hit, and when, for the best deals.


You can check printed and online ads during the week of Thanksgiving.


Sites like and are great all-in-one places to see ads from popular stores.


And, so you don’t have to stuff all those ads in your purse, the Black Friday app keeps ads on your phone.


Compare Prices 

Wondering where to get the best prices for the items on your list?


Sites like,, and will compare prices to show you where you can save the most money.


There are even apps, such as ShopSavvy, that will allow you to scan barcodes to make comparing prices easy!


Take Advantage of Perks 

If you’re the type who likes to get up at dawn (or camp out before Black Friday) to get doorbuster deals, you can get some great bonuses.


Many stores will give away gifts to the first shoppers in line.


Also, stores with loyalty programs will sometimes offer Black Friday perks and promotions for members, so make sure and check into any deals where you have points or club cards!


Stick to Your List 

Make a gift-buying list and stick to it so you don’t drain your wallet with tempting deals before your shopping is even done.


This is especially important if you’ve set a shopping budget!


Resist temptation, my friends!


Know Return Policies and Keep Track of Receipts 

It can be tempting to grab an item that’s on sale thinking you’ll just return it later if you change your mind.


Make sure you know a store’s return policy before you buy (even if you have to ask at the register).


Get gift receipts for any gifts you’re buying.


And, make sure you keep all your shopping receipts together in one, secure place – say a zipped pocket in your purse or wallet – so you know you have them in case you do end up returning something later.


Bring Provisions

When you head out shopping, before you know it, you can spend a whole day out and about.


Make sure you’ve got a few items to make things easier.


  • Water – Stay hydrated!
  • Snacks – You gotta keep up your energy.
  • Charged phone and portable charger – Make sure your phone doesn’t die while you’re out shopping and comparing prices.
  • Sunscreen – I know you included your daily SPF 30+ in your AM skincare routine, but if you’re out all day driving and walking outside shopping, it’s a good idea to reapply every couple hours.
  • A good attitude – Shopping all day in crowds can be overwhelming and draining. But, remember, it can be super fun too! Strike up a conversation with people waiting in line around you, be kind to fellow shoppers and employees, and enjoy the holiday season!


Skip the Crowds

If you’d rather kick it at home in your PJ’s (I hear ya), skip the stores and do your shopping online.


Lots of stores and sites offer equally great online deals.


Bonus: No traffic and you can lie around and enjoy your Thanksgiving leftovers!


Special SkinCare by Alana Treats This Shopping Season
