Who doesn't love the incredible savings available on Black Friday? Unfortunately, the crowds can make what would otherwise be a pleasant experience, miserable. Don't fight off a suburban mother of four who's desperate to grab the last blender only to find out that the same blender is cheaper at a different store. Although I can't promise you won't have to face crowds, you won't do it in vain this year, because I'm about to teach you how to maximize savings.
