But hear this: You can’t go into it unprepared! That’s why we’re dishing these five hacks that’ll have you saving and ensuring all your shopping dreams come true.

Sign up for newsletters

Failing to plan is planning to fail – yes, it’s that serious. If you want to win at Black Friday, you have to plan ahead and that means signing up for newsletters to stay on top of the latest and greatest deals. Some brands release their deals beforehand, making it easier for you to see exactly what’s on offer and plan your budget accordingly.

Fill your cart

Why spend time looking for those heels when you can add them to your online “cart” beforehand. Take some time now to scope our your fave sites and add your must-haves to your cart or wish list. Just a word of warning: Some sites only allow you to keep items in your cart for 24 hours, so either browse the day before or add to your wish list for easy access.
