How many of you moms take advantage of Black Friday? Me personally don't go out in the madness...I shop early and to me the sales are not all that great! But this is just what I think.

I have never gone shopping on Black Friday before...could be because I lived in Los Angeles...but, now that I am in a small town in Colorado, I am thinking of trying it out.  Just to say I've experienced it, at least once.

I usually go out later in the day when the stores are empty.  After the door busters are over, you have the store to yourself.  I went to Walmart last Black Friday around noon and th place was empty.  I got the blu-ray player that I wanted and a few $1.96 DVDs for my dd and when I got to the register there was NO ONE in line.  They had about 20 or more registers open and the cashiers were just standing there twiddling their thumbs.  If you plan wisely, you can avoid the crowds and still get good deals.

I did it one year and haven't done it since. Just not worth the long lines.

I have a tradition with my best friend, we always go black friday shopping!  We start really early and head to a specific mall.  Sometimes we get some great deals, sometimes not so much!  But for us it's not really about the sales, sure it's nice to get a great deal on something, but for us it's about being able to step away from our busy schedules and spend an entire day together for some much needed girl time.  We have lunch (along with a few cocktails), we just make a fun day of it.  

This year we can both really use it, it's been an extremely ruff ride, I lost my mom last November and she lost her dad back in January, we are very close with each other's family so it's been hard.

Not a chance in hell. I'd rather pay full price than deal with the chaos and stupidity on Black Friday. My Grandma went two years ago and got hit by a car in the parking lot of Elder Beerman. at 430 in the morning!
