Black Friday in South Africa

Black Friday in South Africa

Are you ready for Black Friday in South Africa? It’s my favourite time of the year, I love shopping especially when there are discounts and savings involved. Before we get into the deals, here are some tips to surviving Black Friday in South Africa.

Tips for surviving Black Friday in South Africa

  • Online shopping is your best bet, especially if you don’t enjoy crowded malls.
  • If you are visiting a shopping mall, opt for the small branches/stores instead. Shopping malls will be crazy (we saw the clips circulating last year).
  • Wear comfortable shoes and clothing. A backpack is a good option because you have one less thing to carry.
  • Be patient and kind. Self- explanatory
  • Stick within your budget.
  • Pick a shopping buddy to assist you where possible.
  • Drink lots of coffee, you’ll need the energy.

Here are some of the Black Friday deals I am most looking forward to.
