Here's your guide to shopping like a proper organised adult this Black Friday.

Black Friday is coming this November and we're expecting it to be bigger than ever. Last year we saw deals like 50% off Xboxes at the Microsoft store, up to $500 off laptops and 40% off everything at Cotton On. This year, the sales should be better, bigger and across more categories.

As this is certainly one of the largest sale events worldwide, this is a sale you should try to take advantage of. In fact, organised savvy shoppers will use Black Friday to tick a fair few things off their lists. We chatted to a few Black Friday devotees and organised people and asked them what they're buying at Black Friday and why.

Read on to see 7 things organised people are shopping for this Black Friday. Take notes. You can be organised too!

Christmas presents

This year Black Friday is exactly one month out from Christmas Eve, so it's just the right time to start thinking about your gifts this year.

An organised person will have an idea of who they're buying for and what to buy ahead of time. That way when Black Friday officially starts they can take advantage of all the deals on offer and save hundred on your Christmas shopping. We're expecting David Jones, Cotton On and Catch.com.au to all have top Black Friday deals, so head to these sites and start planning.

Home appliances

An organised person would be sitting and waiting to pounce on all the home appliance deals this Black Friday. The biggest discounts you see during the Black Friday period are on appliances and electronics so these are certainly some of the best deals you'll see all year.

If you need to replace your fridge or toaster, an organised person would be waiting for 24 November to score some huge savings on these items. Check out David Jones, The Good Guys and Catch.com.au – these are a few of the retailers we're expecting to have a sale.

Furniture is another huge category for Black Friday. Any organised shopper who is in need of a few new pieces for the home would have these already picked out and ready to buy as soon as the sales go live. We saw some sales of up to 50% off furniture last year and we're expecting it to be bigger this year.

An organised person knows that the best time of year to buy a phone is Black Friday. Even if you needed a replacement a month ago, just hold out a bit longer. Organised people do their electronics shopping on Black Friday for a reason, the savings are worth it.

Try shopping at Kogan, David Jones or Catch.com.au to score yourself a phone on the cheap.

TVs and home entertainment products

This is another staple category for Black Friday. You'll see a bunch of brand new bundle deals only available for Black Friday. Not only are these great value for you, but they make great Christmas presents. Head to Catch.com.au, Kogan or The Good Guys on Black Friday and check out the electronic deals on offer like an organised adult!

Luxury skincare

If you know anything about luxury items, you'll know they very rarely go on sale – especially skincare. The exception to the sale rule is end of financial year and Black Friday.

Organised shoppers will be ready to pounce on any luxury skincare deals from brands like La Mer or Jurlique or any potential sales at David Jones. You're not going to see these kinds of sales again for a long time so you might as well take advantage now and save.

Fashion sales of 30% off and more

Most organised and savvy shoppers will know a thing or two about sale events. There are a fair few: Click Frenzy, Afterpay Day, Vogue Online Shopping Night, Cyber Monday, Boxing Day and of course Black Friday. Within these sale events you see a lot of 15% to 20% off offers but you rarely see an offer of 30% off or more.

Organised shoppers will have their wishlists prepped and ready to go just in case they see one of those 30% off deals. If you need new jeans or new boots, it's time to grab these pieces now, or you'll risk paying full price later.
