Surviving Black Friday With Li'l Rizzo's

Black Friday is one of the best days to get your holiday shopping completed. Many stores are offering one-day-only sales or extending their "Black Friday" deals to all week or month long, so it is the best time to shop. After stuffing yourself full of turkey, you may be making your way to your favorite stores to find the best deals on the gifts your family has been wanting. To make sure you get the best Black Friday shopping experience, Li'l Rizzo's has a few tips to consider before heading out this Friday.

1. Create A Game Plan

Make a list, check it twice and stick to it. Black Friday ads have expanded beyond the traditional Sunday circulars. Many stores have their Black Friday deals online, so take advantage of this. Do your research and figure out which stores have what's on your wishlist. Once you get in the stores, the craziness of Black Friday may get overwhelming, so having a list that you can stick to will make sure that you don't forget anything - or overspend.

2. The Earlier, The Better

If you feel the need to do something other than sitting on the couch after filling yourself full of turkey, go shopping! There are many stores open Thanksgiving night, so take advantage of it. Often times, the Balck Friday discounts will be in effect on Thanksgiving night. Capitalize on the great deals and avoid the long lines and Black Friday crowds.

3. Make Pit Stops

Black Friday isn't just an early morning shopping craze, it is an all day shopping experience. If you plan on a full day of shopping, don't forget to include where to have snacks, lunch and dinner in your game plan. If you want to celebrate a successful day of shopping, planning where to enjoy Happy Hour isn't a bad idea either! Luckily, the best Italian restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks is conveniently located next to the Osage Beach Premium Outlet Mall and across the street from Bed Bath & Beyond and Dick's Sporting Goods.You won't have to travel far for a delicious lunch that can recharge you, so you can have enough energy to find the best deals.
