I always make a Black Friday game plan to help me to not lose sight of my budget, and the list of holiday gifts I hope to aquire at the prices I want to pay.

That being said, it’s easy to get caught up in the buying frenzy of 2012 Black Friday, and end up with things that you really didn’t need at prices that may or may not have been the best ones afterall.

Keep your wits about you while doing your holiday deal shopping and remember…

 There are always more deals to come.

Difficult when you’ve just lost out on that iPod Touch 5th generation at $50 Off during an Amazon Lightining Deal, but it’s true.  

I’ll survive… really, I’m OK.

 If you find yourself with 20 items in your cart at checkout, make sure you can pin each of those 20 gift items to a specific recipient.

 If you can’t, then consider putting some things back.

You’ll thank me later.

 Black Friday is one big sale day (Or in Amazon’s case 2 weeks worth of days…) to kick off the holiday season for retailers.

It will not be the only day you’ll find great deals both online and off before Christmas.

 I promise!

  A list and a budget will save you time and money in the long run.

  Make them, and stick to them!

Most of all, have fun.  Black Friday is designed to get you to spend money, but  frankly, if you’re headed out into the fray, spending time people watching can be the best deal of all!
