Black Friday

black friday

As I was sitting here tonight, working on my Holiday Gift Guide, I began thinking about Black Friday. Every year, for the past 10 years or so, I have headed out to brave the crowds with my sisters and mom (and sometimes even my mother-in-law or Grandma), coupons and circulars in hand, to see if we can find any great deals.

You must know, however, that we do not stand in line for hours before the stores open, nor do we head out at the crack of dawn. In fact, I think the earliest I’ve headed out was maybe 9am! Remember, though, I hate mornings. So add together early mornings and pushy crowds and you get me – staying away!

Honestly, these days I’d rather do my shopping online… No crowds, better deals, AND I can shop in my jammies.

You know what? I think I’ll stay home this Friday.

How about you? Are you up and shopping before the sun begins to rise? Do you brave the crowds in search of the great deals? Or, would you rather stay close to home this year and shop online?

Be Sociable, Share!

I admit that I am a die hard 4am Black Friday shopper =)

Kudos to you!

You couldn’t get me out there that early. Ever.

I am totally not a Black Friday shopper. I prefer to go on the quiet days, even if it means paying a little more.

Black Friday = HEADACHE! I’m shopping online this year!

Online. Free shipping…. no crowds. I love it. BTW, did you announce your OLD NAVY winners? The coupon is good just until today, as you wrote in your post. Hahaha… can you tell I really want it? LOL.

I don’t announce the winners of my giveaways (too much work), but I did notify each one… I’m sorry you didn’t win, Pauline! Maybe next time. ;)
