Depending on who you’re talking to, Black Friday is either the worst or the best day of the year. If you love the tradition of waking up early and waiting outside stores in the cold weather, then go out and get those marked down items! But, what exactly are you shopping for this year? Pretty much every store you go to will have great prices for every item you can think of. Here are the top 3 things to buy for your dorm this Black Friday.
#1 TV- If you don’t have a TV in your dorm and you’ve been dying to get one, or you just want an upgrade, Black Friday is the the day for you. Pretty much every store that specializes in TV’s or just caries electronics will have smokin deals on televisions. Just be ware to check the quality of the TV before purchasing because the high-end ones won’t be marked down as much. Try Best Buy or Target for tons of discounts.
#2 Coffeemaker- Have you been pulling all nighters and spending WAY too much money at Starbucks lately? You could wait until christmas to ask Santa for a new fancy coffeemaker or you can buy it yourself and have it for finals. Places like Macy’s and Kohl’s are having great deals on coffeemakers and other kitchen appliances, so be sure to check them out.
#3 Speakers- Speakers are definitely an investment that you will have throughout college, and probably after. Whether you’re just playing some light study music or having friends over before going out, speakers can be a great addition to your dorm room. Since they’re not really a necessity, it’s hard justify running to the mall and dropping a few hundred bucks on them, but who says you have to? Black Friday can be the perfect day of the year to indulge a little and get a great deal on them. Look out for markdowns at Best Buy or Walmart.
Aside from the bigger and more expensive stuff you’re looking to buy, black friday also offers great prices on everyday items like towels, bedding, headphones, clothing and much much more. If you’re willing to brave the weather and the crowds then happy shopping!
