Anybody who knows me knows I hate shopping because I hate crowds and congestion. I usually avoid Black Friday at all costs. That being said, my oldest is now in college and has very little time to shop, so guess where we ended up on Black Friday. You guessed it. The Mall.
Last year we ended up in Walmart on Black Friday and it was only because I had to pay on a layaway, but we went around 9-10 and it was not that bad, so this year we decided to head out around nine to once again avoid the crazies. It was fuller this year, but there was no pushing or shoving. All the crazies were at home in bed. I was able to find a lot for decent prices. I was very happy with my purchases and was thrilled when I could find the one item for my son that he wanted. Next I have to hit the online sites to order some more things. If I would have my way, I would only shop online. Totally love it! No crowds. No traffic. No lines. No screaming kids. Just me in my PJ’s and fuzzy slippers with a mug of double chocolate hot cocoa with lots of marshmallows and whipped cream. How much better could it get?
