Going shopping blindly without any guidance from a list can lead to you spending money left right and centre on items you’re simply buying because you’re overwhelmed. The last thing you want is an empty bank account and none of the things you want.

Do your shopping before Black Friday, but add your basket to your wishlist. That way you won’t have to search for all of your items on your list in a hurry, they will already be ready and waiting. This means on the day you can get in and out, securing what you want without wasting time scrolling and risking missing out on your top picks.
#7 Give yourself a budget … and stick to it!
It is important to budget your money effectively when shopping over cyber weekend to ensure you’re spending on items that are either one of three things;
Some luxury brands only offer exclusive discounts at this time of year, so if you’re looking to treat yourself or a special someone to a luxury item then cyber weekend would be the time to do so. It’s also a great chance to think about what you’ll want for the year ahead. Don’t only focus on winter boots and Christmas gifts, look ahead to any upcoming spring birthdays or the summer sandals you know you’ll want. While the discount is there, you might as well bag bargains for the whole year.
Therefore, by planning ahead, creating a budget and sticking to it, you can ensure you’re making the most of your money. And who knows – you might find yourself with some spare cash to splash!
