Black Friday is notorious for a lot of things; great shopping deals, long lines and angry mobs of people among them. If the last two are too much stress and hassle for you to take advantage of the first, you're not alone. But there's still a way to use all the Black Friday hoopla to your advantage. We've found two sites geared towards Black Friday shoppers, but packed with enough useful year-round comparison shopping info to help anybody out, even you last-minute pickers. But if you are brave enough to battle the masses, you can check out these two great sites to be your personal shopping guide...

  • TGI Black Friday This simple site displays ad scans and news updates. Click on a category's drop-down menu to get even more tailored results. We clicked on Camcorders under Electronics, and the site spit back over 25 deals. Click on a camcorder, and you'll see a list of retailers carrying the camcorder as well as similar Black Friday deals. For the best Black Friday sales, add the site's Top 40 deals to your RSS reader.
  • BlackFriday.FM If you're already a Twitter user, then you may as well get Black Friday deals sent to you at twitter.com/blackfriday_fm. But if you're not, simply visit BlackFriday.fm for news, the latest deals, and more. Search based on price, early bird specials, keyword, category, or store. Not sure what brand of GPS or camera you want? Then check out the site's Best Black Friday 2008 section, where it aggregates the best TV, camera, laptop, MP3 player, and GPS deals. Last but not least, watch videos on shopping advice, Black Friday predictions, and the history of the crazy shopping day.
