Black Friday

Yeah. Whatever THAT means.

Daniel and I are about to "go shopping." Most likely, that means we will elbow our way through crowds until we both get in bad moods, then we will come home empty-handed.

Please note that it is 1:00 in the afternoon, and we did not wake up at 4:30 to shop at 5. Did you???

Uh, no. No shopping at 5 AM. J.P. and I were saying yesterday that the stores seem to open earlier every year. I'm waiting for them to open at midnight--THEN I'd consider it.

shopping was dumb. we went to World Market, which is this great little fake-import store. tons of people were loading up their carts and baskets with stuff. stuff that was NOT ON SALE! i didn't see a sale sign anywhere in that store.

i am cheap and conditioned to respond to the Red Sale Sign or Clearance Sticker, so i bought nothing. :)

I remember that you battled the masses at Best Buy last year, I just didn't know if that was an every year thing for you and you were that okay with shopping with half the population at once.
I personally can't do all of that at once. Especially not with my husband along with me.
I think that I will probably start taking advantage of the sales as the years come later, because that way I can get the stuff Micheal wants on sale. I can handle lines as long as I don't have a whining husband/child with me. Then my patience seems to last a little longer. This year, though, we opted out.

Ha...shopping...nope...dinner and dancing...yes please. That was my black friday. I wore a black top, a black belt, and black boots. It's so much funner to spend money on onself than on others...:) Hope you had a great Turkey day and post-day too! :)

Absolutely NOT. No way would I waste my precious holiday sleep to go shopping. But my crazy sister-in-law did.

No. But we did give money to a crazy aunt who went shopping at 6am. She got a $25 lighted Christmas tree at Lowes for hubby's grandmother. Easy gift giving!

I was blissfully asleep with Jay, there was no shopping.

My family are more power shoppers. Every year my dad will take a day off when my mom has no meetings and they get pretty much all their shopping done in one day.

I shop online. No lines, no aching feet or back.

Heck no. We made that mistake last year. I'm pretty sure it won't ever happen again. *shudders*

things go on sale for Christmas, there are online specials, free shipping and all that.

But if you are getting something and shipping it to the place far away where you will be spending Christmas- dont use Circuit City- bc they dont put your gift in another box to preserve the surprise.
My parents totally knew they were getting a TiVo last year. I was SO bummed it wasnt a surprise.
