I have been saving up for Black Friday for quite a while, and I planned my trip out before going out, and this week I cam much closer to finishing up my Christmas shopping. Most of my Black Friday purchases was for our household, but it was things that we had been waiting to buy for a while, because we had not found the right deal. Part of frugal living is definitely having patience, because quite often you will have to wait a while to find the right bargain to fit your budget. The key is to do your research, know what the items are worth, so that you do not buy something just because the store says it is on sale.
