Black Friday Tip 11: Clean Out Your Fat Wallet

There are 11 days until Black Friday 2011 and we’re counting them down with money saving and holiday shopping tips.

Today’s Tip:

Clean Out Your Fat Wallet

Take a few minutes this week to prepare yourself for a good shopping experience next week. Clean out your purse or wallet of all the extra receipts, coins, and gum wrappers so you’re ready to shop til you drop on Black Friday.

Having a heavy purse is going to tire you out and having a wallet stuffed full of old receipts is a great way to misplace the important gift receipts you’ll be collecting with all your gifts on Black Friday.

Another good idea is to balance your checkbook so you know the money’s available and be sure to transfer any money from your holiday savings account into your checking account.
