This weekend, my mom and I will be venturing down south to Seattle and its neighbouring areas for Black Friday, also known as the Canadian Boxing Day equivalent but on a much larger scale. I have yet to shop in the states for Black Friday, but my mom is a professional. Phrases I have never heard of in the shopping world plague my dreams every night leading up to our mini holiday: compounding coupons... shopping beginning at midnight... specified hours of sales... To calm my quickly-growing excitement, my mom has emailed me a few pointers I should take note:
1. Don't forget to pack your passport.
2. Wear a tank top underneath so you can try on a top right in the store if the change rooms are too crazy.
3. Also, wear comfortable easy on/off shoes.
4. Scout the outlet store websites before for coupons. (She says, “I usually print, cut and put them in an envelope (in alphabetical order)”. Such a mom thing to do.)
