WHERE TO SHOP

We all know the most important day of the Thanksgiving holiday is not Thanksgiving, it’s Black Friday. While you’re holed up in the house on Thursday, get your Black Friday game plan in order. My suggestion: avoid the mobs and masses and shop online. Don’t think you’re going to skirt the frenzy by shopping the web. Snagging the items you want will still be cutthroat, but at least you can battle from the comfort of your pjs. Build your wishlists preemptively so you know exactly what you plan to purchase from these cyber sales:
