Black Friday Tip #2::
This leads us to tip #2 … DO NOT go without a plan. Before heading out know exactly who you are buying for, their size(s), which store is offering the best price and what their hours are. The holiday hustle and large sale signs can easily instigate the retail rush, but stick to the plan and you won't fall victim to emotional shopping. Here are a couple of our favorite printable lists … gift idea planner …and master gift list from Organized Christmas .

Black Friday Tip #3::
Don't forget to take inventory of your wrapping paper before you leave and pick some up while you're out if necessary. Start wrapping your presents as soon as they are purchased so you can truly cross that person off your list … love that feeling! If you don't already have a gift wrap organizer that is another purchase to add to your list. We think these organizers are pretty NEAT.
