One of the most hectic experiences of the year is right around the corner—holiday shopping on Black Friday—but if you do it right, you can check nearly every item off your list. In preparation for the largest sale day, we're sharing savvy shopping tips that will help you stay organized while snagging the year's best deals. Start in advance by making a list of who you need presents for, and have an idea of what you'd like to give. Keep in mind that there's nothing wrong with doubling up on gift ideas and buying the same thing for your dad and brothers or a co-worker and a distant cousin; this saves time and puts less stress on you.
Once your list is complete, hop online and browse the stores you know you'll head to post-Thanksgiving so know exactly to buy come the in-store craziness on Friday. While browsing online, be sure to take screenshots of the gifts you plan to buy and print them out so you can have your shopping list ready to go while you're snagging the deals in person. Another helpful tip is to consider shopping at bigger department stores like Nordstrom, Bloomingdale's, and Target. This is an easy way to knock a lot of gifts off your list at once.
