As the holidays approach, many people begin to think about their shopping lists. Black Friday is one of the busiest shopping days of the year, and it can be easy to get caught up in the excitement and spend more than you intended. However, if you take some time to plan ahead and make a list of the items you need to buy, you can avoid overspending and stick to your budget.

Think about the people on your list and what they would like or need. Once you have a general idea, you can start looking for specific items. Make sure to set a budget for each person so you don’t get carried away while shopping.
