How Preppers Can Score Big on Black Friday 2018

The Best Black Friday / Cyber Monday Deals for Preppers! 

When this time of the year comes around, people either LOVE or DREAD Black Friday and Cyber Monday. For me, my family were avid Black Friday shoppers growing up, so naturally I lean more one way than the other. No matter your feelings on the crazy holiday shopping spectacle we are about to witness, the fact remains that DEALS ARE EVERYWHERE!

For me, I ditched the in person crowds a few years ago and instead moved my shopping online. I typically find better deals online with NO CROWDS! All it takes is a little bit of planning, making a shopping list ahead of time, and depending on the retailer - the willingness to shop late at night or early in the morning to ensure they don't sell out!  Check out my last post on holiday deal shopping for handy tips on getting your list together (here).
