Black Friday

On Black Friday most people spend too much money on things they don’t need to impress people they don’t like.

Instead of letting Black Friday take advantage of you, take advantage of Black Friday – here is how:

Prepare.
Take time to list all things you think you need. Revisit your list often and remove what you no longer think you need.

Focus.
Stick to this list on Black Friday. No matter how attractive a deal looks, you’ve already decided that you don’t need it. Focus on what you need and resist the temptation to buy more.

Reduce exposure.
After shopping don’t expose yourself to more deals to avoid the risk of buying more things. Spend a limited time shopping and schedule meaningful activities for the rest of the day.

Bonus tip.
Use Black Friday to stock up on items you need most often during a year.

This way you use Black Friday for meaningful shopping.
