    I have never heard of "black friday", but now I know what it means thanks to you guys. It sounds exactly like Boxing Day, although that event has calmed down somewhat since Boxing Day sales have been known to last for a month or more now! In any case, that's not for me. I despise huge crowds, rude people and long line-ups. Then again, change the scene to a club, with a shooter bar, and I'm there! partyicon

    First, you couldn't pay me enough to hit Wal-mart on Black Friday! Dh and I look at the sales papers, get up early (we do anyway), forget shower and makeup (only time of year I go out without it) and run brush through hair, head to a few stores. This year we hit about 4 or 5 stores and were home by 9 AM. Ironically, we don't do our Christmas shopping- we shop for ourselves. :LOL: This year we got a 10" miter saw at Home Depot for $60- I was so happy. Dh told me I ruined my X-mas present. I told him I still wanted an air compressor and nail guns. What can I say...I love home improvement projects. Dh started laughing and said were not building a house. :LOL: We both had a good laugh. :LOL:

    Always the procrastinator, I usually find myself battling the crowds as late as Xmas Eve. I actually got all of my shopping done (a first for me) and everything wrapped in the beginning of November. ~ Cathy

    You are my idol Cathy. :LOL:
    I am such a procrastinator but every year I tell myself that this year will be different....hahaha I did hit Walmart for their "black friday" sale only because there was something my kids really wanted and it was extra cheap. :) I was in and out in 15 minutes. Not mentioning the fact that I was there at 4:15AM..that is besides the point. :LOL: I wanted it and had to have it.

    No way do I get up that early. If there is something we want for our daughter, ourselves or anyone else and it's an early bird thing DH will go get it, he loves that stuff! Then he comes back for me at around 9:30 or 10 and we leave for round 2 of shopping LOL
