5 Tips for Surviving Black Friday

We all know they call it “Black Friday” for a reason… but if you are brave enough to take on the biggest sales and crowds of the year, please take advantage of these helpful tips. Good luck!
STRATEGIZE: Shopping on the Friday after Thanksgiving is intense, if you don’t go in with a plan, you will probably not be successful. Decide which stores you want to go to and in which order. Plan your shopping “route” around the location of each store for the easiest access
LIMIT SURPRISES: Get the Thanksgiving Day newspaper in your area and flip through all of those ads. You might be surprised to notice how many of the ads are time-sensitive — as in, deeper discounts may apply if you shop before 10 or 11 a.m. or noon. Other ads will let you know what time certain stores plan to open and close. This will also help to determine which
stores will be the most crowded at which times.
GOING OUT EARLY? PLAN ACCORDINGLY AND BE PREPARED: Remember to dress comfortably — warmly enough for the time you’ll spend outside, but with layers so you won’t collapse from heat stroke inside stuffy, crowded stores. Comfortable shoes are a must, and so are portable snacks and drinks. They’ll prevent you from having to endure low blood-sugar levels, dehydration or congested food courts.
MAKE A SHOPPING LIST: You’ll feel more in control and focused if you head out with a list of the people you’re shopping for, the gift ideas you have in mind for them and the target price range for each item. Otherwise, a shopping day like this one could be so overwhelming you might fail to accomplish as much as you had hoped.

TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE INTERNET: No crowds, no lines, no need to change out of your pajamas. Many online retailers offer sales and special discounts on the Friday after Thanksgiving — and sometimes those sales kick in at midnight on the night before Black Friday. It might be a weird way to spend the wee hours of the morning, but you’re guaranteed not to get scratched, kicked or trampled.

Thanksgiving on a Budget

Tips and ideas on how to save money on Thanksgiving dinner

PLAN AHEAD: Planning out your menu ahead of time will make everything easier and less stressful. Making a grocery list before you go to the store will enable you to find coupons and save more. Setting a budget for your shopping trip is also a good idea. That way if you think you will go over, you can re-evaluate your list and see what you can do without.

PREPARE YOURSELF RATHER THAN “HEAT AND EAT”: I’m not saying you have to make everything from scratch, but where you can, do it! You will save a lot of money; those prepared foods can get really expensive. Take some extra time and save some money. Your guests and your wallet will appreciate it!

KEEP YOUR EYES OPEN FOR SALES: This one is kind of a given, but make sure you watch the grocery store ads for sales and don’t forget to check for coupons in the paper. Some fresh veggies can be blanched and frozen for later use. Also, some things in cans can be bought ahead of time.

HAVE A POTLUCK: If you are planning a large family gathering, why not ask everyone to bring a dish? Then all the work and expense won’t fall on one person.

GET A FREE TURKEY: Yes, it’s possible! During the holiday season grocery retailers are constantly competing for loyal customers by offering great deals to lure them into the stores. Both local and chain supermarkets have been known to offer a turkey, free of charge, if you spend a certain amount of money in their store. If they don’t offer this, they may offer other mealtime goodies like savory side dishes or delicious holiday pies and desserts. It doesn’t hurt to ask!

Twilight T-shirts for a Cause

This Thursday the Grand Theatre 16 in Lafayette, Louisiana, and United Blood Services, will be joining forces with an exclusive T-shirt and a blood drive before the big New Moon premier.

The first 10 donors in line at 8:30pm will receive a general admission movie pass, and all donors will receive this exclusive black T-shirt with a New Moon design.

“More than 5,000 pints of blood are needed each month to meet the need of more than 60 medical facilities here in south Louisiana. It is crucial to maintain an adequate blood supply for local patients this holiday season,” said Amanda Landers, director of donor recruitment, United Blood Services.

Sometimes it seems like people would do just about anything for a free T-shirt. Not to mention an exclusive, one-time-only, limited edition Twilight Blood Donor T-shirt! With this great T-shirt promotion, Louisiana should be all set on blood donations, that is as long as the vampires don’t come out and steal it!
