Ok, so in case you havent’ already noticed, I haven’t’ put up very many Black Friday deals. I personally have never shopped on Black Friday *gasp*! I decided the only reason I would go would be to watch the crazies fight over deals just so I could laugh at them. Getting up at 3 or 4 am for some comedy just wasn’t worth it to me.
Plus, I am so used to getting amazing deals on-line all year long, that I just don’t see why that day has to be so special to getting a great deal. Not to mention I am personally aggrivated that some stores are opening their doors on Thanksgiving day itself. Hello people – shouldn’t we be spending time with family, being blessed that we can pig out so much, and giving thanks?
Cyber Monday is so much more fun for me. And to be quite honest – I’m 90% done with my shopping already. I’ve said plenty of times how I use Swagbucks to earn Amazon gift cards. So I’ve done plenty of shopping via Amazon and haven’t had to pay much out of pocket at all for some great gifts I might add!
I know this is a very opinionated post – and I fully understand that their are plenty of people who disagree with me. Because if their weren’t, then businesses wouldn’t profit from this huge event and it wouldn’t be such a big deal.
With all of that being said, I know that some can’t wait to get out the door Thursday night or Friday morning and have a great time shopping. I truly do hope you have a great time!
