    Did you brave the crowds on Black Friday?

    Just wondering how many of us did some shopping the old-fashioned way (in-store) early the morning of Black Friday.



    My wife and I hit up Wal-Mart (5am) and Target (6am), and scored some really good deals (digital camera, sd card, cds/dvds, etc.).

    My heroes, my dreams, and my future lay in Yankee Stadium. And they canít take that away from me. óDerek Jeter

    Heck no.

    Speaking of which there is a movie coming out called "What Would Jesus Buy?". Basically it's about how Christmas has become more about going into debt in shopping than it is for the actual day.
    Life is good!

    Yeah... um...
    most of the crap we got was for us... kind-of a last hurrah before xmas, and we always get something nice that we've been thinking about during the year.

    I think they had the Sopranos Seasons 1-3 for $20 each, but we didn't go to Best Buy this year (3rd year shopping Black Friday and we were really disappointed with their sale this year).

    I wanted to, but there were other more important things going on, and I was exhausted. I really wanted that $50 Stanley rolling tool chest at Walmart, though.

    Re: Did you brave the crowds on Black Friday?

    I have never in my life gone out shopping on Black Friday, I guess mainly b/c I work in retail PT. I worked Saturday though and my co-workers said that it was busier there on Wednesday than Friday, go figure. We are in the same building w/a Best Buy and I rang up a lady Sat. who said that Friday she waited ages to get into the parking lot and it was not even full--it was from all the lazy people (her words, not mine) causing parking lot problems b/c they were trying to park close to Best Buy.
