All day long, I’ve gotten nothing but Black Friday marketing emails in my inbox! Do you participate in Black Friday shopping?
I’ve never really gotten into it, but one of my best friends goes out with her mom and sister and they get ALL of their Christmas shopping done in one day. Super impressive!
So, do you go out and brave the chaos, or do you hang around home while everyone else is out battling it out? And if you do shop, do you have any tips, tricks, or even fun stories to share? 🙂

I did the black thursday thing when it first became popular.. and that was it. I’ll never do it again.
I will totally be shopping from home on black thursday/friday and cyber monday, though.

I do and always have. A few years back, I camped out at Target all night in freezing temps to get a TV for my family. It wasn’t easy and I’d never want to do it again, but it was worth it! We saved hundreds.

It depends on if what we need is a good deal. We’ve gotten bikes, tvs, a gps, ps3. It can totally be worth the crowd!

I do! It’s like competitive shopping! I never go for the big ticket tems, but I like people watching and the mayhem.

Not really. If I go its in the afternoon so the rush is done. You can still get god deals, just not the doorbusters.

Ive gone before, but never camped out or gone right when stores opened. Its never been that serious to me, but I do love a good deal. I genrally go in the morning and im out of there before 11 am.. Im more of a cyber monday girl as PP have mentioned but there has recently been a spike in stolen packages around here so now im a little concerned lol.

Cyber Monday only. No way I’d even make it on Black Friday, I’m usually too hung over from thanksgiving.

I love those online deals!!!
Wow, that is super impressive! Not many people can say that, I think!
I’m with you! I prefer the comfort of my home. 🙂
Did you at least get anything good for your effort?

nope, never really been interested. My whole family goes for it though I just don’t see the point. There is nothing I need so badly to be standing out in the cold dark in a line full of ppl the day of/after thanksgiving… We went once but it was later in the day after the crowds were gone & really we didn’t see any huge deals like what we expected- alot of the stuff seemed to be marked with a “original retail price” that was higher than the non-sale price a week before, and with the black friday sale somehow ended up being the same price it was before the sale…

I do all my Christmas shopping online. I also feel is so unfortunate that stores open ON thanksgiving now. Poor people who just want to celebrate it with their families and instead they’re working on Thanksgiving day.
