I’ll be spending my Black Friday at home!
I used to go out to scour deals and steals pre-kiddos but those days are no longer.
One year, we went to the outlet mall near our home at midnight on Black Friday (back before they started opening stores on Thanksgiving evening!).
That was a big mistake! There were so.many.people.
Now, for a person who isn’t a fan of crowds… this was a nightmare.
People, as far as the eye could see. To a point where they were limiting how many people could enter a store at a time. The line for ‘Coach’ was snaked down the sidewalk. The craziest thing?
There. Were. No. Deals.
As in, that year they were not having any special Black Friday sales or specials. YET the line was 80 people deep. I must have missed the train on that one, and No, we didn’t wait in that line.
So, these days. I put on my fuzzy socks. Convince my husband to bring up the decorations and get to decorating the house for Christmas. Oh, and don’t forget the Christmas music!
I’ll let you know next week how many decorations we lose with Bubba’s help. I’m hoping the damage will be minimal.
What are you shopping for this year?
What am I missing?
