To keep your sanity while shopping this Black Friday, it's important to have a game plan and let that plan start by downloading the free app, BFAds.
Before the shopping madness even begins, the app allows you to search through thousands of products, comparison shop, and even create a shopping list to take with you on the big day.
Register and you'll receive alerts of new sales are released.
Save yourself the hassle of running from store to store with a simple barcode scanning app.
The free one called Bakodo barcode scanner and QR
barcode reader is well reviewed and easy to use.
Scan your object and then search more than 20,000 stores to see if that product is somewhere else for a better price.
Don't waste time in stores digging through your purse or pockets to find coupons, before you leave home, download the free SnipSnap app and take photographs of all your coupons, so clerks can simply scan the barcode on your screen.
A minute saved means a minute more of shopping somewhere else.
Happy Black Friday.
