Preview Black Friday deals
November 17, 2011
Woot! Woot! Who's pumped for Black Friday??
I've only officially participated in Black Friday once. I hate crowds and I hate getting up early. My husband and I wanted to get a TV at Target one year and decided to brave the crowds. Of course, since we both hate crowds and waiting in line, we showed up about 10 minutes before the store opened, and weren't there early enough to have a decent spot in line or to hear the announcement that all TVs were on the floor in the clothing section instead of electronics. As you can probably guess, we did not get ourselves a TV that year. It was further confirmation to me that I am not made for Black Friday.
But that's just my story. Some people LOVE getting up (or staying up), waiting in line, and running people over for a $5 DVD player. I have devoted myself to only shopping online for Black Friday, and last year I had a really successful experience on Amazon.com. I purchased most of my husband's Christmas gifts at discounted prices while still in my pajamas with coffee in hand. It was glorious.
So whether you enjoy braving the crowds or are an online shopper like myself, you can start preparing for Black Friday!
