    Black Friday Shopping

    Black Friday Shopping....Are you in or out? If you are in what is your action plan?

    I am out! I may be one of the few but I have actually never gone out shopping on black Friday. DH went last year to wal-mart but all the hot items he wanted was already gone, so I doubt he will go out this year.

    Semi-in. We don't do the fancy electronics nor go to Wal-Mart but my mom and I do go to one store. They give out snow globes when they open so we go mainly to get the free snow globe. My mom will occasionally do some shopping too but not much.

    People think I'm crazy for showing up at a store at 3:30a just to get a snow globe when they open at 4a but I think people are crazy who camp out for days before Black Friday.

    I did it for the first time last year. But then I had friends with me. This year no one is around, so I might get up and go in the earlyish morning and see if there are still any good deals going. I'm not getting up at midnight if nobody else is going with me. I don't have the stomach to jostle for stuff.

    I have done it on and off over the past couple of years. I am not going this year as we will be on the road heading up to Maryland, but it is always fun to do it when you can.

    I've never gone and have no plans to do so. The nearest stores are an hour and a half drive away from here on good roads. No thanks! I do plan to go online and see if I can find some good deals. I found quite a bit of stuff on Amazon last year.
