(CBS MoneyWatch) If you are one of the brave souls who will venture out on Black Friday (and the newer version, "Gray Thursday"), one of the best ways to save money is to not fall prey to retailers' seemingly "great deals." According to dealnews.com, not everything will be a good purchase on Black Friday. The site has compiled 10 items that are not worth buying this Black Friday.
Don't forget that if you are going to brave the crowds this holiday season, conduct research before you go out. Many of the large brick and mortar stores will have online coupons, so you can easily compare prices from the comfort of your home. If you have a smart phone, load it up with shopping apps like Nextag, TGI Black Friday and Snip Snap. As always be sure to bring a list of the items you want so you don't blow your whole holiday budget early with spur of the moment, emotional purchases.
