Do You Have Black Friday

shopping plans or a list of must find deals?

No judging on my part, but I don't feel like dealing with the madness this year. In fact. I won't be around to deal, which is fine with me. Rachel and I have gone Black Friday shopping in years past, but not with any particular list or intent. I'm not one of those who camps out on Thanksgiving (or even earlier) at places like Best Buy to get the big deals (although I know people who have and even intend to this year; no judgement). I like shopping, and my budget is limited, but so is my time  and energy.

I've only shopped once during black friday but it didn't seem worth it to me.  This year we are going to one place, Bass Pro Shops.  There are some clothing I want, and a gun DH wants that is an incrediable deal.

 I never go shopping on the Friday after turkey day.  But I do need to buy some things on line.

 I will not be going this year, I have in past years but too much extra expense for me(I live in Canada).  I have always had a very good time going with the girls but this year I have opted to stay home and be the babysitter.toddler tantrum

When I first bought my house I needed a vacuum and scored a fabulous online deal on a Shark on black Friday. Online deals can be great - and I love my Shark!

I do but it's not shopping. My sister is coming up for the day/night and we're going to make cookies.

My daughter's do. I don't want to get up that early. I have most of their stuff shopped for. Other stuff I need to get is online, which I need to make sure to do this week.

I don't even go out later that day to get groceries. If we are out, it can and will wait until Saturday.

We have gone for a few years to wallys but we live in a small town and it is more of a social event. This year I am thinking of going to OldNavy (in Chico) - anybody done that one?? And yes, I will also do Wally's at 8pm for the $78 bedroom tvs and the $150 xbox
