Is anyone else tired and confused on all the Pre Black Friday / Black Thursday / Black Friday / Etc. sales? I sure am. It makes me start to think if anything is really a good deal at all on these sales or is it just hype.
I don't participate in the whole Black Friday sales thing as much as I use to. I do sometimes shop a little online that day if I'm not busy filling orders for my shop. I think the last time I went out on Black Friday was a couple years ago and I went to Target at 5:00 am or so. I found most of the items I was looking for and then went to check out and it was absolute chaos. The shopping part of it wasn't that bad (except all the carts were gone and I had to carry everything I wanted in my hands) but the check out line was a mess! People were cutting in lines, lines were wrapping around all over the store...just crazy. I think I stood in line for about 45 minutes to 1 hour to pay and debated was this really worth my time and the anger it's causing me. The older I get the more annoyed I get with large crowds. Anyone else feel that way? I think that's why I enjoy shopping online more and more...no stupid people in my way! ; ) So are you going to brave the crowds on Black Thursday/Friday? I'm not going to say I'll never go out on that day again, but that so called "deal" better be a good deal to get me out there!
