    Default Black Friday

    Is anyone going? My DH and I have gone for the last 4 years. Even though it's crazy, we love it! Any favorite spots that you hit? We mostly hit Target, Kohls, Best Buy and Toys R us.

    Heavens no...lol. I went to Walmart last year for two things for my son. I would have gladly paid more for the item I was able to get just to avoid those crazy people! Perhaps if I had my sisters with me or something I could tolerate it, but we don't have family close so I am on my own.

    I always have to work that day because generally I'm out of vacation by that time of the year. I went out once or twice with my mom before I got this position. It was chaotic, but I enjoyed it! I did NOT hit Walmart, I hate that place enough as it is. I love Kohls

    No, first of all I can't get up early enough, and there is nothing I want worth braving the crowd for. I will probably have all my Christmas shopping done before black friday,lol. Plus, I love to online shop. I think you can get most of the deals online too!

    OMG, NO! I've only gone once ever, and we couldn't even move through the store because it was SO FREAKING PACKED. Literally shoulder-to-shoulder, front-to-back... We had to be breaking some fire codes. It felt like the biggest waste of time (and sleep). And... I pretty much always have to work that day, so I wouldn't be able to even if I wanted to. I'll do my shopping in my PJ's on the couch with my laptop, lol.

    I've read some articles that Target won't be doing Black Friday this year..

    I'm good with saving my sanity for the same of $100 bucks or so.. Like Mary, I'll be in my jam jams with the puter.

    That's the thing... I never ever saved any money when I went. Crap, I don't even think I ended up buying anything. I could see if I was saving some massive amount of money, but I just don't see it happening. I have cousins that are ALL about it. They just won't even go to sleep on Thanksgiving night and will head out at like midnight to wait in lines... Crazy! But they have agendas and shopping lists and specific things they want. My shopping style is different. I look around and think, "That's nice, I'll buy that." I don't really go into it with a plan, haha.

    I think if we actually needed one of the things that they usually put on Black Friday sales, we might do it (I know I would.. ) but it's usually electronics.. and we're good in that department.

    I used to think that people who went were nuts!lol! Now I've become one of them.. We list too, know what we're getting and move on to the next store! We usually get everything done that day! It's fun! There is a group of us that goes together...lol..
