Do you shop the day after Thanksgiving?

Me and my oldest daughter made this a tradition probably 8 years or so ago, she is now 15. Me and her get up early that morning and shop all day....We really enjoy it and it's our time. It's not really about the good deals we may or may not find, it's just a fun tradition we started....and getting our starbucks and eating out for lunch is fun too.

  • Yep, I started going when the kids were little because toys are so much cheaper then.

  • No. The frustration from the large crowds and long lines and the pushing and shoving just isn't even worth it to me. I'll pay the extra bucks on something I really want rather than dealing with the hassel of Black Friday. I've went twice and I was more irritated than anything else. People are so rude.

  • My oldest & I started that several years ago we leave all the kids and husbands at home and boy do we shop. It is our special bonding time without kids which we rarely ever get to do we always have some one with us

  • No.. We go shopping a week before Thanksgiving because it's too crowded right after. But it's still our fun tradition- we leave the house at 9ish in the morning and get back after dark! We have brunch, snack (starbucks) and dinner out. We started it last year when she was 4 and it was really fun!!

  • Wild horses couldn't drag me out that day! Or any shopping day like it.... I hate crowds, I'd probably end up socking somebody over the head for crowding me, heh.

  • Momsangels, that is us too....I have 4 kids and there's always someone around, fussing, whining, etc....this is OUR time to get away from it, lol. I only go to the mall though, no Wal Mart and Toy stores.....lol....too much going on there. We go to the Children's Place evey year too and my daughter has a stuffed animal from there for every year we have gone.

  • I wait until around 9 AM to go. Most of the crowds have gone home by then.

  • NEVER - I can't stand the crowds of crazy people. I'd rather do my shopping when I'm not going to end up wanting to kill someone!
