Aloha Friday

Today is the day for shoppers everywhere - Black Friday!  And of course, my question just has to be Black Friday related:

Do you shop on Black Friday?
Did you grab any steals 'n deals that you need to brag about?


When I was in college, Black Friday was a crazy day for me.  We'd get together at Denny's, and then just go store hopping.  It was fun, and we got a whole bunch of crap that we really didn't need. 

I haven't done any Black Friday shopping for the past two years.  Last year I was pregnant and mainly horizontal - standing in line and fighting for a $2 DVD was not high on my priority list.  Besides, we had no one to shop for - we were on the other side of the country from our family and they didn't want us to send presents...pictures were enough. 

We're visiting our family for Christmas, but I didn't do Black Friday this year either.  My parents and my grandmother from overseas are visiting, and obviously shopping is not a priority - spending quality time together as a family is.  Besides, our Christmas present to everyone this year was the act of flying home - they didn't want any other presents except for us.  Obviously I still have a few treats to hand out, but for the most part my Christmas shopping is done.

Nope, and nope. I don't do black friday. Nothing I need bad enough to possible get killed (or kill) for. I really dislike crowds.

I love Black Friday but this year I did not participate. Hubby & I haven't finished decided what the kids are getting!

I don't shop on Black Friday, even though I know that I miss out on a lot of great bargains.

No Black Friday shopping for me. I stayed home with my two boys while hubby went to work. Hubby wanted to go out to dinner tonight, and I was too afraid of the crowds and convinced him to stay home.

This year was my first time shopping on Black Friday. I worked in retail for about 10 years and always had to work Black Friday's and it is horrible. After I got out of retail I refused to shop on this day but yesterday I went out and it wasn't all that bad. It is a lot better on the shopping side of things.

I do most my shopping online and I never shop crowds.
