To send you on your way, here are some tips you can use for your Black Friday shopping.

1. Place the item in your cart ahead of time

If a retailer is pulling the trigger on a deal on Black Friday, you need to make sure you’re the first in “line” to get that item.

How do you do this online?

Place the item in your online cart ahead of time so when the clock strikes the specific time - you’ll be ready. Then press “checkout” and go on your merry way.

2. Identify what you want ahead of time

Whenever you go grocery shopping, you usually make a list. There should be no exception to this rule when you’re doing Airbnb shopping on Black Friday Weekend.

It can be incredibly easy to spend, spend, and spend some more on Black Friday weekend because of all the sumptuous deals.

This is where a little self-control and restraint comes into play. Make a list of everything you need and stick to it.

This will be especially helpful in stores like Walmart that sell everything under the sun.

3. Prevention is better than cure

If you suspect one of your appliances or electronics is on the way out, you’d be wise to replace it or at least get a backup.

You don’t want to be one of those “I should have known”s who don’t jump on a hot deal.

If you use your home as an Airbnb frequently, then it is a safe bet to have two of everything (or have the money to buy a replacement) - especially when it comes to appliances.

Think about it: if your high-end coffee maker gives out on you some time next year, then you’ll be wishing you had the chance to replace it at 70% off.

With some things, this isn’t reasonable.

No one has the space to store a second refrigerator in the home, we get that.

But if your fridge is 20 years old and makes ice inconsistently, you better start shopping around on Black Friday weekend for a new one.

This is where a good mental tally of everything in your home starts to come into play.

Think you yourself: “how long have I had this item and how long has it been working for me?”

Well, that about wraps it up for his 2018 edition of our Black Friday Airbnb Suggestions.

Happy Thanksgiving and Happy shopping!
