With Wal-Mart or any store, it is best to research what will be on sale on Black Friday ahead of time. Some stores start having major sales before Black Friday.
Many stores will have the same items on sale. It is best to do a price comparison before choosing where to purchase an item. If multiple items are wanted, take a friend or two along. Spread out and try to get as many things as possible on the lists. Make sure to stick to the list. Just because something is on sale does not mean it is a good deal. In addition, purses and wallets should be in a secure place to avoid theft.
