Five Things Every College Student Needs and Must Buy During the Black Friday SaleBy Staff Reporter, UniversityHerald Reporter
It's that time of the year again. Yep, you heard that right. It's the annual anticipated Black Friday Sale that everyone is excited about. It is the time when avid shoppers try to beat each other (literally and figuratively) for the most amazing deals. But while college students want to scramble the racks, their limited budget must remind them to get only the items that they absolutely need.
Each year, broke college students hope to getall those high-priced stuff they want because everything is on MEGA sale. Whether it's that new laptop they've been eyeing for a while, or those high-heeled boots to rock on a party, they can get it this Friday for a lot less.
Sure, it is easy to score a good deal on a new sweater, but the uncertainty of what it is good for will hit every college student. Everyone is on a budget, so spending on things they don't need is a big 'No'.
So here's a list of worthwhile items to put in your Black Friday wishlist:
- A winter jacket is a must-have.
This piece of clothing is particularly important especially in areas notoriously known for harsh winters. Black Friday is the perfect time to invest in that winter jacket that everyone's looking for -- fashionable and functional. Everyone needs to keep warm. Though that scarf looks really good, a winter jacket is an investment that won't make it to the closet inventory list a week after.
- Snow Boots cut out for harsh winters.
The cold weather is also about snow and ice. Get shoes that can deal with both, but still look fashionable. College students can still run to their class in the morning even if it is snowing when they got the perfect snow boots on. The frightening terrain that winter brings doesn't have to be scary at all.
- Texting gloves are essential.
While being away from home for college is fun, it can be quite challenging to send a message while one is out and about on a winter night. Texting gloves are a perfect investment. They help keep extremities warm while allowing the college student to send a text message. It's just perfect!
- An external hard drive is a necessity.
With all the papers due in two weeks, it is best to keep a back-up of all those files. Technical tragedies can happen to anyone, but nobody wants to suffer from it. Instead of putting money on another outfit, it is best to invest it in an external hard drive. Forget about fashion for the next few months, invest in a hard drive instead.
- Business Outfit for the future.
College students must prepare for the future. Adding a piece of clothing that's good for business is definitely the right investment on Black Friday. Whether it is for the internship or the scholarship interview, a good business outfit can make any college study stand out. It could include a blazer or two and maybe a few short dresses too.
Even though the Black Friday sale is for spending, it is best to keep your mind on a budget to stay on track. College students cannot afford to go overboard. In all the shopping that needs to be done, remember to bring the student ID. An extra percentage of discount will surely be of good help.
