Black Friday can be a bit intimidating -- there are some hardcore shoppers out there attacking the shelves at 4 a.m., which is why I stay safe in the confines of my apartment on this day. Sure I may miss out on some amazing deals, but I'd rather not risk getting trampled on or killed. But lucky for those of us who are scaredy cats, because a trend began growing last holiday season to have Black Friday deals throughout all of November. This year, Best Buy and Walmart have really great early Black Friday deals on their electronics that begin this weekend, so start your shopping early!
