Listening to all the ads telling about the BIG savings on black Friday, the stores will be open at 4am. Now to me that's ridiculous, I know where I'll be at 4am, Sound asleep. I figure that if you really want to see the BIG savings, do like me,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
STAY HOME !!!

A very wise man once told me the fastest way to "double" my money, was to fold it in half and put it back into my pocket...

I can't think of anything I need at the moment.

My family is with me, the dinner was sumptuous, my belly is full, and the laughter is great.

Tomorrow, when I arise, there will be plenty of left overs to enjoy. My pockets don't have enough in them to worry about splurging on some trinket that would get stuffed into a closet.

So, why rush out to wander down the crowded isles just to look at all the stuff that was there last week? Has it magically changed?

I don't think so. Our Christmas shopping was done a while back, so nothing needed there.

It is considered the first shopping day of Christmas. The stores are overcrowded with people trying to find "a bargain" Some people have been killed from all the shoving and pushing. Me, I'll stay home.

Yesterday is for memories!
Today is for making memories!
Tomorrow is a concept that does not exist!

I think it's kind of fun. Got up last year went to Office Depot and over to Walmart. Said goodbye to walmart when I saw the parking lot.

Heading out with my daughter at 4:30 this year to walmart and then back across to office depot at 6 home by 7 or maybe breakfast at the Waffle House. Yea that's the ticket. Best Buy, forget it. They have a line already

You guys are really missing out on the deals!! Oh well, less competition....

JK, no way I would be out in those crazed crowds looking for that 1 item on markdown who would KILL to get it!! Forget the streets or the parking lot being a true hazard - you ever looked a woman in the eye reaching for the "last one" of a Black Friday deal??? Do so & you'll know true fear and impending death.
