#1 - Use the internet. Google what you are looking for. Not only for prices, but reviews. Compare the sale price you find to two of the biggest discounters: Walmart & Amazon. Check out Sarah's Deals for hot offers as they are found.
#2 - Think small. Black Friday is known for deep discounts on big ticket items, but it's also the best time of year to pick up many new household items. Linens, appliances, decor and much more are at the best prices of the year.
#3 - Split your resources. With the age of technology at hand, have the best shot at scoring the deals by staying connected as you shop. Three people at three different stores will have a better chance of getting the items on your list. A cell phone and a friend at home online could be your secret weapons.
