Saving money is something that millions of Americans are thinking about as the overall economy continues to struggle. With this being the case look for many people to wait until Black Friday to get their Christmas gifts. One of the major retailers that is set to release their sales and deals ad is Target. The 2010 edition of this ad paper is sure to include many TVs, computers and digital cameras.Unfortunately, it is the case that Thanksgiving Friday sales will not be officially released for at least a few more weeks. By knowing someone who works at a major retailer you may have the opportunity to get an inside view on what items will be on sale but for those of us who do not know retail workers it will be the case that we will have to wait until the beginning or middle of November. Fortunately, there should be many great sales and deals for some wonderful items as most retailers realize that Americans are looking to save money with an unemployment rate still above 9%.Before making any purchases when it comes to Christmas gift ideas it is always important to see what is going to be on sale during the major shopping days of the year. There is very little doubt that Black Friday is the busiest shopping day of the year as millions of Americans will be out and about after they have spent the Thanksgiving holiday with their families. This can be very good and very bad all at the same time. It can be very good because it offers millions of people an opportunity to save quite a bit of money when thinking about Christmas gifts for their loved ones. They can be very bad because there are way too many people in one spot and it is often the case that someone ends up getting hurt.With the Target Thanksgiving Friday Sales paper being released before Black Friday it would be a very good decision to come up with a strategy as to how you want to make these purchases. Instead of waiting until the last minute and hoping to get these items on the morning of Black Friday it would be very smart to pick out the items that are must haves and go straight for these products. Unfortunately, some of the more popular sales and deals will cause a great amount of demand which will in turn mean that some of the shelves will be empty.
