Here's an idea


Here's my plan for Black Friday. I dislike shopping every other day of the year, but do so out of necessity. On Friday, however, I will leave the bargains to the fools brave souls who choose a line in the snow to flannel sheets pulled up under their chins.

While they're paying $20 for an extra DVD player I'll be rolling over for an extra half hour of sleep. And while they're circling the lot at WallyWorld to get a $10 bike their kids can't ride for another 5 months, I'll be plugging in the kettle and warming up a cinnamon roll that probably won't live to see another 5 minutes. And as they swear at traffic and pat themselves on the back for saving ALL.THAT.MONEY I'll be pondering not getting out of my pajamas at all, and considering that maybe the one who didn't go shopping was the one who got the best bargain.

I'm with you. I dislike so-called Black Friday and the whole "Gift Gimme Season" so much that each year I go to great pains to conclude gift shopping before Thanksgiving.

Lovely graphic. I may have to steal it.

We decided to jettison the idea of Black Friday in favor of online shopping. Works for me.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Same here. We don't leave the house for that crap-ever. Do most of our shopping on-line. Amazon usually has it's way with us.
