Did you shop on Black Friday?

By: Donna Chaffins | Date: November 24, 2012 | Categories: Funny, Humor, Random Thoughts and Conversations

If so, what was the best deal you got?

Maybe the song, “You Better Shop Around”, was ahead of it’s time? Tee-Hee.

someecards.com - My Mama told me....

In all my *cough* forty plus *cough* years, I have never gone shopping on Black Friday. Ever.

Am I missing something? If you do shop on Black Friday, why? Is it more than getting a great deal? I hate crowds. I’m not a morning person, so I wouldn’t enjoy getting up at the crack of dawn to go shopping. I just don’t see the draw.

Besides, I always go visit my parents for Thanksgiving and spend 4.5 hours driving back home on Friday. The last thing I want to do is shop.

    You sound like me. I’m also not a morning person and don’t like crowds. I’ve never gone Black Friday shopping. I sometimes wonder what deals I could have taken advantage of, but just thinking about the huge crowds and long wait, and I feel it’s not worth it, for me.

    We braved the crowds at 6 am Friday morning at Walmarts, then came and crashed after getting some great deals. Thank you for the post.

    You’re not the only one – I don’t shop on Black Friday either! I love a good deal, but I don’t have a desire to brave the crowds. 🙂

  4. Billie says:

    I haven’t done Black Friday shopping either, people can get vicious.

  5. Leilani says:

    I don’t shop on Black Friday because I feel bad for the employees that have to work on Thanksgiving. I think it’s terrible.

  6. The only shopping I did for Black Friday is buy my daughter a few tee shirts that were on her Christmas list from Hot Topic, they went on sale for $10!

  7. Karen Glatt says:

    I went Black Friday shopping, but I did like it. I get a lot of inexpensive gifts for my family that I normally would not even be able to afford. I go with my sister and we both have a lot of fun!

  8. Marcie W. says:

    I usually do shop however I passed this year due to how early the stores opened. I did score some amazing deals online!

  9. Kathleen says:

    I have gone every year for about the last 10 years and you aren’t missing much. It used to be amazing and fun, but now they start it earlier and earlier and it is just crazy.

  10. We did do some shopping and got some pretty good deals.

  11. I did, but not much and not early!!

    This is my second year going. I go at night on Thanksgiving. It wasn’t bad last year but this year was pretty awful. I started at Kmart and ppl were rude then I went to Walmart and found the items I already bought cheaper. This might have been my last year of going black Friday shopping!

  13. Sheri says:

    Nope! It’s a pretty new concept here in Canada and I didn’t take part.

  14. I looked at some stuff online, but didn’t pull the trigger.

  15. Jennifer says:

    I actually didn’t shop yesterday. I stayed away from all the craziness!

  16. Ivan says:

    Nope, I’m not that adventurous, but I did look at online deals and considered buying something. I’m such a scrooge. 🙁

  17. Stefani says:

    I stay at home where it is nice and warm.

  18. Courtney says:

    No way too crazy for me lol

  19. love shopping Black Friday. Scoring movies for 2 dollars, and 70% off almost everything i got for my kids. The deals are hot and you score them any day of the year. I remember the 1 yr I couldn’t go it was the hardest to get through having to pay close to full price for everything. I could never imagine not shopping black friday

  20. no, I was beat. I was sick then did Thanksgiving, then I watched grandkids so my daughter could shop. Then I slept.

  21. Actually, I went to several stores and was able to snag all the items I wanted, but the lines were SO long to where I left, couldn’t do it. The crowds were to much for me and the stores were super HOT, too. Maybe next year, hopefully!

    I have never shopped on Black Friday and never would. It just seems nuts to me to get trampled in the madness!

  23. Laura Hunter says:

    I never have. There is nothing I need that is worth dealing with the madness. Besides more often then not you aren’t getting as good of a deal as you think. Stores will often inflate their prices right before the sales so that they can show you a better deal. For example several years ago we bought a tv during a sale about 4 months before Black Friday. Then while going through the news paper my husband noticed a advertisement from the same store for the exact make and model of our tv being promoted for a black Friday sale at half price. But it was still $50 more then we had paid 4 months earlier.

  24. Lolo says:

    No way, too crazy for me.

  25. Kimberly Davis says:

    I don’t have the patience for all those close bodies besides I would probably knock someone OUT if they push me. Sorry just telling the truth.

  26. Joannies says:

    Yea i have went shopping on black friday once and i have never done it again.except by computer. I am disabled and i tried it one time and i found it so hard i could not even think. I do most all my shopping online for my Grand children now it is so much easier and you can shop for a better price so much faster and even change your mind on a whole new item without any any fears. I LOVE TO SHOP ONLINE thanks joannies
