Here are 10 Black Friday Shopping Tips:

1. Have a list of your top must have items. Check out several apps to see which you prefer first to keep track of gifts, deals, and items purchased. Some apps will find the best Black Friday deals and keep them all in one place.

2. Make sure to get a gift receipt. This will help the receiver tons if for some reason they need to return or exchange your gift.

3. If you insist on heading to the early bird sales, keep it light. Make sure to wear a purse that you can wear across your body, that way you can keep your hands free!

4. If the store is opening early for that “must have” item that is a few hundred dollars off, chances are you are not going to be the only one in line… unless you plan on camping out. Make sure to know the layout of the store before heading in as well.

5. Consider shopping on Thanksgiving Day. Many retailers {in stores and online} will begin to show you the price drops on Thanksgiving.

6. If you are saving a lousy few bucks here and there and you're gonna be in a bad mood because of the crowds, STAY HOME! There's honestly no reason to hit the stores unless it's for a Doorbuster item and even then you are taking your chances.

7. Get to know the Black Friday store policy. Many retailers offer "Doorbuster items" and are offered during a set time frame. These offers are limited and no rain checks will be issued. If you are going after a non-doorbuster item, consider placing your order online and earning cash back! In addition, consider making your non-doorbuster item purchase early.

8. Can the item be price matched? Typically, stores will price match an item as long as it's not a "doorbuster" item. In this case, be sure to do a price match and bring the competitions ad in! If you are going after a BIG ticket item, consider price matching other "smaller items" to maximize your savings and get your shopping done in 1 trip!

9. If you are doing shopping online, have the browsers open (including eBay) and ready to search! Make sure to check out cash back sites too.

10. Even if you don't get the deal you were after or you totally not a early riser, consider making it a family tradition. It can be one day a year all the woman in the family get together, swap cookie recipes, go shopping and create a lasting memory....just.have.fun!

Do you head out early on Black Friday? What tips do you have?
