If you want to save big bucks but have no attack plan on how to brave the massive crowds, here are some tips to get you through this marathon day of shopping:

Make A List – If you write down exactly what you plan on getting for friends and family, you’ll save yourself time and money by not buying things you’ll end up returning later.

Wear comfortable clothing and shoes – This translates into sweatpants or jeans and sneakers. This is not the day to be cute! You’ll be grateful after the third or fourth hour of shopping.

Travel Light -Ladies, I know we love our big bags, but this day requires all hands on deck! Leave the big bags at home.

Check out the deals online – Most retailers have already placed their products and deals online.
