Black Friday used to be something that only our wild deal-hungry neighbours to the south did, but these days, it's a part of plenty of Canadians' holiday shopping routine. On Friday, November 29 there are tons of stores across the country that will be offering super low prices just in time for you to cross everyone off your shopping list. Black Friday advice is already rolling in on Twitter and not all of it is helpful.

If you're eager to get in on all the deals this month, then you're not alone. 

Some of the most hotly anticipated sales from Amazon and Walmart are going to make shopping this season a total breeze.

For better or worse, Twitter is already full of tons of advice for shoppers who will brave the stores and the malls for deals.

Some information is really helpful and offers guidance on how to survive the craziness and even where to get the lowest prices.

However, some of the tips are less than helpful.

#BlackFridayAdvice was trending on Twitter in Canada and if you expected to take notes, then just hold off for one moment.

If you were expecting tips like "stay hydrated" and "bring reusable shopping bags," then you are sorely mistaken.

Some Black Friday advice on Twitter was dark and pessimistic. One tip reads "Stay home," and another reads "don't leave the house." 

Anyone who doesn't want to leave the house can still take advantage of the sales online and on Cyber Monday, too.

There are a ton of Twitter users with "advice" about the combative and competitive nature of Black Friday.

"Prepare to fight your way out," reads one tweet, and "wear protective gear," reads another.

Of course, things don't typically get as rowdy in Canada as they can in the United States. 

Even though Black Friday is on November 29, Twitter is already full of dubious advice for those who are desperate enough to seek it. 

There are stories everywhere. If you spot a newsworthy event in your city, send us a message, photo, or video @NarcityCanada on Twitter and Instagram.
