Get through Black Friday without getting black & blue
Don’t Fall Into the Black Friday Trap
Holidays, and in particular, holiday spending can leave your budget seriously bruised…even if you do hit all the sales.
Remember, the stores are offering these great bargains out of the goodness of their hearts. They’re doing it to get you to their stores (or websites) to sell you stuff beyond the 55-inch 4k, 3D capable OLED television for $49.

Don’t fall into the Black Friday trap. Have a holiday spending budget and stick to it like Odysseus sailing past the Sirens songs of deep discounts.
