Believe it or not, some people dislike taking part in all the goings-on typically associated with Black Friday. They’d rather spend a quiet morning at home than wait in lines, fight crowds and run around town. We, however, are not one of those people. To us, there’s something super-exciting about getting in the mix and finding deals on great gifts—so every year, we’re among the first to hit stores. This year? No exception. We have every intention of carrying on our fave tradition, though—for once—we’re going in with a plan: In addition to prepping the perfect here-and-there outfit, we’re pinpointing the best sales and charting a smart path. (First up? Doorbusters!) We’ve even found a way to shop several deals early. (Gotta love Shop Your Way!) Want the full scoop? Get it here, all week. We’ve agreed to share all our Black Friday secrets—on just one condition: You hit a different mall.
