As much as we love spending quality time with our friends and family on the day of giving thanks for things that money can’t buy, we also love finding crazy awesome deals for our friends and family. We know, it’s complicated.

That being said, we need to give thanks a little early this year for these Black Friday apps that will keep us sane and organized as we race through the aisles like 10-year-olds and swipe our credit cards until they break in half.

From finding the best deals to planning the safest route through the mall, here are the four best Black Friday apps, courtesy of Strollerderby.

Black Friday Deal Finder
As “the ultimate one-stop resource to shop, save, share and compare all the best deals of the holiday shopping season,” the BFDF app allows you to search within particular stores for items in your desired price range or by brand. You can also search multiple stores at once to plan your attack around your desired sale items.

It couldn’t be simpler: just scan the barcode or QR code on the product’s tag, then wait for the app to tell you where you can find the best deal! Maybe your instincts were right and you’ve got the best deal in your hand, maybe you just need to pop to the store across the street to get two bucks off, or maybe you could order it online for half the price. Either way, you’ll be sure to get the best price.

TGI Black Friday
View Black Friday ads even before they’re printed, compare deals between stores, receive frequent updates on “leaked ads,” and share your favorite deals with friends on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ (or keep them to yourself, you dirty shopper!).  This app also allows you to create a personal shopping list by adding items directly from the ads for you to check off as you shop.

Point Inside Shopping & Travel
Not only will you have access to additional deals and coupons, but this app also provides interactive maps of over 1,250 malls nationwide, so you’ll never get lost in the Black Friday throng.
