Mom Dot Blog Party: Day 8

Do you shop on Black Friday? What time do you start? Do you complete your shopping this day? What's the best deal you have ever found? What's your shopping strategy?
My answer is going to be a big, fat, HELL NO. There is no way in hell I shop on black Friday. I hate crowds. I hate the pushing, the lines, the stress of trying to catch that bargain by a certain hour. I hate that all the sales circulars advertise *the* hottest items, and tell you that you have to be in line by like 4 a.m. to get a ticket to buy the item. Who finds that fun? Certainly not me. You know what I want to be doing at 4 a.m. on Black Friday? SLEEPING. In my nice, warm bed.
This year is the first year in a while that I actually have Black Friday off, so I might *try* to hit the stores a little later in the day if they're not looking too busy, just to see if I can still catch some bargains. But nothing that's on my kid's list is really a big ticket item (except the lap top that I think my son has finally decided he can do without, thankfully!), so I'm not really sweating looking for bargains.
I know there's going to be some crazy mommas out there who have a whole Black Friday shopping scheme planned out, so I can't wait to read all about them!

I've gone out later in the day before and you can still find great deals without the crowds. Good luck!

Trish said...

I've only gone a few times, so it's not a must for me either.
