CLEVELAND — On Friday's edition of Lunch Break with Jay Crawford, we offered the inside scoop on what you need to know in the midst of Black Friday shopping madness, the best time to buy your holiday tree to get the most bang for your buck and creative ways to make those Thanksgiving leftovers even more appetizing than they were the first time around.

Jay lunched with 3News’ Danielle Serino who quizzed him on what to buy Black Friday -- and what you can hold off on.
