some people have no choice but to shop on a day like black friday b/c, financially, it is when things are on sale and most affordable. luckily, i don't have to go - we are ok this year so that i don't have to take advantage of the money saving sales but i feel bad for those that do - those that want to give their kids, spouses and relatives really nice things for xmas w/o breaking the bank.

i would LOVE to relax this year---but there's a navigational system that DH really wants that is marked 50% off that day and i can't pass it up

plus -- my sister goes every single year with her mom and sister....and they moved to north carolina--so she was so sad that she had no one to go with this year--so i figurd i'd sacrifice some sleep and go with her so she can start the tradition with me.

We have serious financial issues, and still don't venture out... we just buy less for everyone! Chat Icon

I also buy things on sale as I see them throughout the year for bdays and holidays. There are always great sales - not just on the most evil day of the year! Chat Icon

Maybe I'm in the minority, but I'm not a big spender / big shopper at all throughout the year. Chances are I won't buy much - if anything - this day. I don't buy anything MOST days of the year (I even bring my lunch to work...)

i have never made a single purchase on "black friday"

actually black friday signals the beginning of NO SHOPPING for me - i refuse to be in the crowded malls

i have my entire excel sheet filled out and with each paycheck i will be making my purchases ONLINE and i will NOT pay any shipping Chat Icon

I can't deal with all of the people, the only place I could see myself going possibly is the supermarket!

ETA - I try to get most of my holiday shopping done prior to Thanksgiving so I don't have to go near a mall on weekends during the holiday season.

But why? If you have Christmas Shopping to do any way? Whats the difference if you go on Friday or Saturday (besides Sales why not save money?)

me too

this day has long be the tradtional day that retailers START to make money for the year- hence the term "Black Friday"
(moving from the Red to black)

why is this such a bad day? to call it the devil seems alittle over the top IMO

but maybe I am baised b/c my livelyhood is based on retail

Ya I just don't get it. You are still gonna buy things for people right? So why does it matter what day you do it. Seems silly

We don't really go out and do Xmas shopping... we order stuff online here and there, buy things as we go, etc - we have a list of specific things that DH's daughters want, so it doesn't warrant a trip somewhere...

We don't really buy something because its on sale, we buy things that we know people want, and most of the time, I use a coupon I already have for the store, or we buy it whenever - its not like we buy that much anyway - so really, its not like a big day of spending/buying, etc... so, if we buy one or two things regular price, and spend 100-200 dollars, then its better than buying 10 things on sale for someone, and spending 300-500 dollars. We save money, by not spending it!!!

also, honestly, we sometimes buy things the week of xmas, and those sales are still there - sometimes really, really cheap too!

It's so funny that a day was created to cause a wide panic and get everyone out the door at 5 in the morning the day after Thanksgiving!!! It's like the stores are afraid that people may actually stay home and do something like spend time with their families... god forbid - no money in THAT! Chat Icon

no- that's not why the day was created- I posted it above- it the day the stores had traditionally started making money for the year- and now they capitalize on

most of the money stores make are in the 4th Q- which is Oct- Dec 31

so this season can make or break a stores year- they aren't just trying to cause a panic- it has nothing to do with wanting people not to spend time with there families

and doesn't every one spend the day before with there families????
