    Anyone decide to brave the Black Friday crowds?

    Even prior to diagnosis, discretion is the better part of valor for me. Yes, I admit I'm chicken when it comes to rabid shoppers, but I know some folk
    s love the hectic day. Whether you are out in the mayhem or curled up on your couch, I hope y'all are having a lovely day.

      I would rather have a double dose of chemo than go near a mall of other store during black friday or any tie this weekend.

      Goodness no. I know some thrive on stress, but I do not-- especially these days. It nearly crushes me. I have to go pick up some medicine at the pharmacy, and I'm dreading just that.

      I am thinking this will be an online shopping year, just like the last!

      I usually skip the Black Friday Madness. However, I decided to venture out around 10 AM. The first stop was Kohl's because I had a $10 Card and a 15% Off Card -- the parking lot and aisles were fine but the Cashier lines went to the back of the store so I left. On the way out, I gave the $10 Card to a young couple in line and the !5% Card to a young mom just coming in. They both were very appreciative making me feel like Santa. Next stop was Sam's Club - no lines at all. Next was Farm & Tractory Supply for water softener salt -- short line -- then Raymour & Flanigan Furniture Store to browse for a Coffee Table -- no crowds at all. Then we had a nice lunch and headed home to watch some of those Hallmark Christmas Movies. Since it was our 49th Wedding Anniversary -- my husband took me out to a very nice dinner in the evening. It was a good Black Friday for us.

      I was so drained from preparing a big Thanksgiving meal, I slept till noon on Fiday. Besides you get better deals the closer it gets to Christmas so I wait until the last minute to do my shopping.

      I was so exhausted from preparing a big Thanksgiving meal, I slept until noon on Friday. Besides you get better deals the closer it gets to Christmas. I wait until around the 15th of December to start shopping and I'm able to find a lot of great deals and very few lines to wait in.

      Not I! I've never shopped the day after Thanksgiving. Mostly, it was because we had our business open house then for 20 years. Now, I just don't want to be in the crowds. The last few years, I have bought online. Nice to have it all delivered to the door. I just put some turkey legs in the crockpot so we could have leftovers to go with leftover broccoli salad from the potluck at our church we attended.

      I've never braved Black Friday - it's not my idea of a fun time. DD & I did some cyber shopping, so much more civilized .

      YES! I use to enjoy shopping. The past year I did not. I went out on Black Friday just because I could and felt good enough to do it. Most of the stores were more specialty stores - like the local equivalent of Home Depot + Walmart = Fleet Farm or Menards. Only went for a few hours with a very short list: bird suet, pecans, dried apricots and jar candles. It was great.

      I went shopping on Black Friday once about 20 years ago. That was enough for me. Every year I hate it more and more. Christmas gets more and more comercialized every year. Stores used to open at 5 or 6 am with door buster sales. Now they are starting on Thursday. It seemed a different store was opening every hour. Now that the kids are grown we don't focus on gift giving. So most of my shopping is done. :-)
