Black Friday Tip 57: We Just Sold the Last One

There are 57 days until Black Friday 2011 and we’re counting them down with money saving and holiday shopping tips.

Today’s Tip:

We Just Sold the Last One!

Ahhh..what a bummer. Retail space is valuable and stores don’t often carry an inventory in the stock room any more. While they try to anticipate the demands of their customers, no store is perfect and with the chaotic rush of Holiday shoppers, it’s likely that some of the items on your list are going to be gone by the time Black Friday gets here.

So today’s tip is to shop early if possible. There are great deals to be had online (ahem…FatWallet) as well as early sales happening in the stores. With price adjustments as an option, and the priceless peace of mind knowing you’ve already got what you need for the holidays, it may be worth it to shop ahead of the crowds.
