Shopping Survival – Don’t Let Black Friday Make You Blue

Black-friday-2012-deals

Braving the Black Friday rush requires a plan that includes patience, sustenance, and the guarantee of cocktails at the end of your shopping spree – even if you do wrap up your whirlwind at 11AM. Keeping your energy high and your frustration low depends, in large part, on fueling your bargain-hunting bod. A few ideas:

Coffee: Obviously a necessity in this scenario. Keep a thermos in your car to avoid the hassle of carrying a cup through crowded aisles. Plus, the promise of hot java waiting will keep you focused on getting in, getting it done, and getting out.

Water: Think of Black Friday as a marathon. Stay focused, keep a steady pace, don’t trip anyone and hydrate, hydrate, hydrate.

Fruit: Bananas, apples, and grapes are the least messy fruit choices.  Leave the pineapple and pomegranate for the experts.

Nuts: No, not the nuts that stand in line as soon as the table has been cleared – I am talking real nuts. Skip the processed carbs and go for almonds which will keep your blood sugar and your sanity in place. Add some raisins or dried cranberries to satisfy your sweet tooth. And speaking of teeth, keep smiling.
