Christmas of Dreams Day 8: The shopping day of DOOM



The lovely ladies at Momdot want to know:

Do you shop on Black Friday? What time do you start? Do you finish all your shopping on that day? What’s the best deal you have found? What’s your shopping strategy?

HELL NO!!!!!! I have never spent that day anywhere near a mall and I don't plan on it. Ok well I might venture out this year since I am taking that day off work, but there is only so much shopping I can do with my child in tow.

If I do head out, it will be at a reasonable hour, not 4am. I like sleep thank you very much! I might use that day to grab some things for DH, if I can somehow keep my child from spilling his guts to DH once he gets home.

But most likely I will be curled up at home snuggled into the couch with my son, enjoying my time off.

Todays sponsors are: Koshas, Leapfrog, and Soda Club

I do normally go out shopping that day. You have to have to proper preparations and mindset, however. This is day you can plan to deal with traffic and standing in lines. But I think of it as an adventure and plow right in! However, I do not get up and going at 4 AM. I get up and going whenever I wake up. You really can get some great deals.

Also - when you say your posts are "sponsored" by someone, does that mean they are paying you to advertise for them?

You can't get me to step one foot out the door on Black Friday!

Staci said...

I'll be heading out with a little one, hopefully we'll make it through the morning!

Trish said...

We usually go out later on, so it's not that bad!

Cathy said...

Gee, tell us how you REALLY feel! :) I guess I'm not alone in Anti Black Friday!

If you do go out, make sure someone knows where you are going. That way they can send a rescue party if you don't make it back.

I would much rather be in BED at 4am on Black Friday! I am sure the deals are good, but my sleep is very important to me, more important than the people who are pushing and shoving each other around stores to grab things they are planning to purchase. :)
