A good friend of mine once said, that he loves the smell of fall, the taste of winter, and the sound of spring. Is this a famous quote yet?!! Anyways, besides the fact that fall smells especially delightful as far as seasons go, it also means to get ready to spend a lot of money


You see, every year Black Friday takes on a new role. A bigger and badder role. I’ve never been considered a trust fund baby, I’ve paid for most of what I own, so anytime I’m buying gifts for others or myself I find the rock bottom deals. It’s an odd concept, but some people feel better paying full price for something and I am not one of those people. All the black Friday hype has turned a one day event into a near two month event.

Eager Retailers Greet Crowds Of Shoppers On "Black Friday"

I’m not here to tell you what to buy (email me if you want to hear that), but rather to start finding the deals and checking off gifts for family members and friends. Doing so will decrease your chances of trying to buy a product that is sold out, which can be frustrating, especially on black Friday, TRUST ME. Also, you’ll save money in the long run!


Let’s be honest college students, we don’t have a lot of spending money and if we do it should go towards our school loans.


So, rather than waiting to buy gifts for your siblings and long lost friends you’ve missed since August, get a head start and scope out all the tasty deals online. Everybody who knows of the Internet knows of Amazon and that’s a trusty place to start. I’m not a buying expert from Yahoo!, in fact that’s where I got some of this information, but what I can do is try and let you busy students know in advance, that way you’ve given siblings and friends more smiles, saved more money, and had the best thanksgiving break a buff could ask for!
