Black Friday

November 26th, 2011 at 12:09 am

You couldn't pay me to shop today.

Black Friday symbolizes to me the time to stay away from the stores. I won't go near a mall probably until January, again. I'll stay away from the big box stores, too.

The kids still have to get Xmas and Bday presents for dh. We've got the internet for that.

ETA: While thinking about it, we bought dh a Christmas gift (with rewards, so was free). I have a very nice gift in mind for his birthday - will wait to see if I can use my next $250 credit card reward for it - the item cost $250 and isn't released until after his birthday, anyway. So, can wait on that one. The kids are learning that you don't have to spend money when you nice gifts for other people.

    I usually go out to see what everyone else is doing. I never buy anything. We went out last night and the lines at Target and BestBuy were miles long, lol it was crazy. Then we go back today and it's quiet.

    Personally I don't think the sales are really worth it.

    At 7pm last night we drove past Target and there was already a line. The store didn't open until 12. There is nothing that a store can sell that will entice me to stay in a line for 5 hours.

    I'm with you... I make a point of staying home on Black Friday. I can't stand the crowds nor the materialism that has gotten so pervasive around the Christmas holidays.

    This is the first time I think I've ever gone out on a Black Friday, and we didn't go out until after noon and not to get any specific deals, either. To get the oil changed. Then we trotted up to a store since we were nearby on the off chance they had a parka. They did and it was on sale, so worked out for us. No crowds, no bad traffic at all for us to deal with.
