Huge crowds, insane lines, and unreal deals, Black Friday is absolutely unreal. Even though it is originally an American-only sale, Canada has slowly adopted it as well. As a broke student, saving every last bit of money is essential. Black Friday allows you to save money and buy the things you've been wanting to get for a while now. Whether you're shopping for warmer clothes or in need of winter boots, the changing of seasons calls for a switching of wardrobes. \n\nBlack Friday is also the perfect day to do some shopping for some of the electronics you've been meaning to buy. From headphones to IPads, you name it everything will be on sale. It's also a great time to buy appliances, with markdowns of over 40% off you will definitely save your money.\nNovember 24th is also a great day to grab some makeup bits that you need. Whether you have to re-stock on your contour or pick up the new Fenty Beauty foundation, makeup shops always have some sort of Black Friday deals. Plus with the holiday season just around the corner, it is also a perfect way to save some money on present buying. Seriously, Black Friday is a day of savings and you have to take advantage of them.
