bypassing the black friday shopping frenzy

I think it’s hilarious to wake up at 4 in the morning, the day after Thanksgiving,  in order to go shopping for the best deals for the holidays.  I rather sleep in myself, if I didn’t have to go to work that day.

But there are those who have made a tradition of Black Friday and will forego most anything to partake in the event.   So, while I sleep in and lounge around and munch on leftovers while watching classics and playing board games with family members (remember these are the things most women can’t do while playing host on Thanksgiving Day), more power to those who leave their families behind, while in pursuit of buying a Wii board on sale or cashing in on the discount coupons only valid at 4 in the morning.

So, in light of those diehards, I have included  a MAP (I mean a site)  here which I think  is pretty useful in planning your very own Black Friday Experience. Have fun!

    My roommates were at the mall at 2:00a.m. and Walmart at 3:00a.m. I woke up at 5:00a.m. to the sounds of plastic bags rustling in the living room. Lots of plastic bags!

  2. Yeah, Black Friday shopping has never appealed to me in the slightest. But I guess many people find it fun. (My mind boggles at that, even though part of me understands the “thrill of the chase”). But I’m with you: I’d rather sleep in….. and shop when the stores are empty).
