Not I!

I have done some Black Friday shopping in the past... Usually later in the day on Friday, because I don't go for big ticket items. But we won't be near any stores this year, and my in-laws don't really go for that sort of thing.

I'll probably check out deals on the computer... especially Amazon, but definitely not going out. I might have to hit the grocery store, but that's it.

I may go to an outlet center an hour away but not sue since I'm exhausted this week with sick kids.

I saw this topic on the this that posts random topics for everyone. And I thought it was silly that the poster called people who go idiots:( so I shared that my son Tyler last year called me to te me that Utah has this cool sale called Black Friday and he went and got an Xbox 360 and 48inch tv for $400 or $500. He was 21 and works hard for his money....was living on his own paying his way....I am getting bashed for it by 1 poster!!!! My kids are spoiled and lazy blah blah......
So I will say yes with 7 kids and DH and 2 grand kids and the donations I do for CPS I will go this year. It's been about 6 years since I had done it. Tyler is getting the 5 kids an Xbox to share and DH and I are getting them the 50 inch tv ( hopefully ) from target.

Oh goodness.  I saw that post too.  I am sorry you got bashed.  I say more power to you to save some money! Happy shopping! 

I have a lot of nieces and nephews (and siblings) and it saves a bundle by shopping that day.  Plus, call me odd, but I love the crowds!  I guess the stores which I have went in the past (walmart, best buy, kohls, etc...), everyone has been pretty nice and courteous.
