Black Friday

So it's official:  the "Christmas Season" has begun. 

Today the stores are filled with shoppers hoping to snag that great deal advertised all this week--rock bottom prices!  Some stores started "Black Friday" at 6:00 pm on Thanksgiving--talk about getting a head start!  Personally, I feel very bad for the employees who had to give up time with their families to work on Thanksgiving, but I guess it is what it is.

I am a typical Black Friday avoider.  If I do any shopping that weekend, it's either at the grocery store or online.  I went shopping on Black Friday one time with the intent of getting my shopping all done with minimal financial damage.  It is an experience I have not repeated since.  I didn't do all that well on my bargains, it was hard to find a parking space, and one woman actually jerked a sweater out of my hands!  No thank you! 

Today I broke my rule--I did venture to the mall because one retailer had programmable coffee makers for $8.00.  I foolishly thought that at 10:30 am they would still have some--NOT!  The sales clerk said they had over 100 of them and they were all sold within the first hour (6 to 7 am).  Oh well, you snooze you lose!  I did venture upstairs and made one other purchase that I had seen advertised--I was luckier on that one.

So, I got in my car, went home, and have already done a little online shopping.  Why not?  You get the same selection, the same prices, and a lot of stores are offering free shipping.  Plus there's no frustration with lines, parking, and you can take a break and come back later.  I love it!

Of course, not everyone is like me--some people LOVE to shop in person--obviously a lot of them do.  I'm just not one of those people.  Hey, to each her own!
