Shoppers mark November 25 on their calendars. That’s Black Friday this year—the Christmas shopping season’s core.
We’ve seen “Black Friday creep” for years. One day has taken up much of November and even October. Pre-Black Friday sales start in October, and merchants launch their formal Black Friday online bargains a week before Thanksgiving. Black Friday and Cyber Monday have also become a weekend-long shopping marathon, with bargains starting on Black Friday, lasting through Saturday and Sunday, and starting again on Cyber Monday.
The Best Things to Buy on Black Friday
We can help you develop a good shopping list. Our official Black Friday shopping list is here. On Black Friday, these items will be at their lowest prices. So add them to your cart, check out quickly, and enjoy Thanksgiving weekend.

Upgrade your laptop, desktop, gaming PC, or tablet on Black Friday. Best Buy will sell Apple items (not Apple.com). Dell, Lenovo, and HP will offer online doorbusters all weekend. To navigate these electronics sale events, check their Black Friday ads in advance.
Doorbusters often feature low-spec equipment. Since the price is cheaper than usual, you can utilize that “extra” money to enhance your storage and processing capability. Tablet replacement? Tablets are top Black Friday buys. Best Buy and Target usually provide Black Friday iPad bargains.

Home Goods And Clothes (Towels and Sheets)
Black Friday’s unsung hero is linen cabinetry. Towels and linens are undervalued Black Friday buys. Besides, it’s a good time to buy clothes such as Black Friday Shapewear or waist trainers. You can find them at an unbeatable price.
Massage guns are among the “items you won’t know you need until you need them.” Amazon has offered Black Friday discounts of up to 30% on massage guns, which cost over $100. Black Friday is about obtaining expensive stuff for much less.
The days when Black Friday sales were limited to only one day are long gone. It’s chaotic. So you need a plan. this year. With inflation rising, smart Black Friday shopping can help you avoid holiday excess and stock up on essentials for the year ahead.
