How will you spend Black Friday?
Until I got married I didn’t even know what “Black Friday” was. No joke. I assumed it was some sort of grim historical reference. My wife has kindly enlightened me to the real horrors of this day.
Is it a guy thing that I don’t know or care about this stuff? I’ve been an online shopper far before it was either cool or safe, and have never, ever waited outside for a store for it to open. Really.
Are you one of the people that revel in these orgies of consumption? I can definitely see the benefit, assuming you know what you NEED (I put that in caps for a reason) and budget your purchases?
Has the economy changed your plans?
These days, money is very tight for so many of us, so I decided this daddy best look into Black Friday stuff a bit more seriously. Here are a few places I found consolidating deals for the big day:
- Here’s Amazon.com’s Count Down to Black Friday Deals *
- Here’s another good one: Black Friday at GottaDeal.com
- This one’s kind of self-explantory: TheBlackFriday.com
- Actually so is this one: BlackFriday.info
- But wait, there’s more at: Black Friday Ads
- And lastly Black Friday at DealsNews.com
Am I the only one who avoids stores during days like this? Don’t get me wrong. I actually enjoy Christmas decorations and music at the malls (in December), but I’m not a big in store shopper.
Honestly, look at the woman’s face in the photo above. If saw granny there coming at me waiving her cane, I’d totally hand her the very last Lalaloopsy Silly Hair Doll and crawl whimpering to the door.
What will you be doing on Black Friday?
* Except for Amazon, I don’t get a cut from any of these. Oh, and by cut, I mean if I’m lucky I may be able to buy a Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte with my massive commission.
