Black Friday Survival Guide!

You have been planning for weeks about what you are going to buy on Black Friday. You have mapped out the route you are going to take to get to your favorite stores the quickest. You have all your coupons stacked and ready to go on the counter, just waiting for Friday to arrive. But have you thought about some necessities you might need when shopping? Perhaps you have, but you might want to read over this list just to make sure you didn't forget anything!

1. Comfortable Shoes
               You are going to be racing around and standing on your feet for hours, so why not wear comfortable shoes! Here are a couple suggestions that are comfortable, but still cute!

2. Cross Body Bag
                It is crucial that your hands are free during this shopping trip! But no need to resort to a fanny pack from decades ago. 

3.  White or Black Tank
                 Come on! Who really has time to wait in line for dressing rooms on Black Friday? If you are a smart shopper and wear a tank top underneath your sweater, then you can just try things on in store! Well, you could try things on without a tank top, but I don't think other shoppers will appreciate the show! 


4. Water Bottle
If you decide to bring a water bottle, made sure you can slip it in your cross body bag, or leave it in the car for when you drive to your next destination. The worst thing that could happen this Friday is for you to get dehydrated during your excursion. So plan ahead!

  4. Great survival list. I find water to be indispensable when running around and I also throw a granola bar in my purse too so I have a portal snack.

  5. Great list ! You gave me a lot of good ideas for when I shop that I don't think of !

  6. Such great ideas, Scarlett! I ALWAYS try to wear a white or black plain top when shopping - that way I can try on blazers, skirts, pants, etc. knowing that I'm likely wearing whatever top I would already pair it with!

    Thanks for adding me on IFB :)


  7. So bummed out that we don't have anything like black friday here. :) great tips anyway. x Angie

  8. Good tips! I'm a wuss, though--I wait for Cyber Monday!
