Black Friday Will Never Be The Same With These Tips From

Everyone can get stressed out during Black Friday looking for savings, so is hoping to take a new approach and rebrand this day to Mauve Friday by giving us some tips. Black Friday is an American holiday that has grown in popularity here in Canada, as retailers offer savings in-store and online to entice Canadian shoppers. 
When most of us think of Black Friday we think of early morning wake-up, long lines, aggressive shoppers, and slow websites due to the amount of traffic because everyone is looking for the best deal. But Black Friday doesn’t have to be stressful. 
Follow these simple tips from for a more mellow and tranquil experience: 
Set a budget: It can be easy to get caught up in sales, so before you head out set a budget that you’re comfortable spending to avoid buyer’s remorse. 
Research the deals before you go: Search digital flyers on trusted sites like from the comfort of your home so you know what’s out there and where you can find the products and deals you want. 
Make a list: Develop a list before shopping to avoid an impulse purchase. 
Be savvy: To ensure you have the right item for the right price, compare the digital flyers while shopping with’s new mobile app. 
Dress comfortably: If you’re going to be out all day, make sure to wear comfortable shoes. If you can handle a brisk, chilly walk through the parking lot without your coat, you’ll really enjoy not having to carry it with you. 
Online is in: To avoid the crowds completely, you can always try online shopping. On November 29, will have compiled great deals and discounts for Canadians in one spot.
