I ALWAYS go shopping on Black Friday. Its tradition. I even posted a Fashion Friday: what not to wear post last year.
This year, I wasn’t feeling it. We were in NY and it was 20 degrees that night. My California blood was freezing. I usually have a list of stuff to go fight some people for, but I didn’t even have that this year. I knew I wanted to go look at toys for Coop, so the hubs and I had planned to go out just for that.
We went to Toys R Us for their special 10pm opening. Along with the rest of NY state. It was madness. We were in a massive line and were nowhere near the door at 10:30pm. We started hearing all the grumblings of people asking “what are we looking for here?” Which made me wonder the same thing. I wanted to slowly browse. (And sip my starbucks. And spend endless hours letting the Christmas magic soak in.)
So we left. Went to bed, slept until 9, then went shopping.
It was moderately peaceful by that time and I couldn’t help but think about the $10 in savings that ALMOST made me loose a night of sleep. So not worth it. I have decided that unless there is really big, money saving awesomness,
I’m going to sleep.
Cyber Monday? Now, that is a WHOLE different story. I’ll shop in my PJ’s any day.
