black friday

I only went to one place this year...


WALMART!!!


I purchased some stupid digital picture frame for my wife (not as a gift).

I also took advantage of their 2 and 5 dollar DVD sale. I must have purchased around 70 of them total.


As I left the store around 1:30 AM some security dude at the front door checked my receipt and I shouted out "dont touch my junk."

What a great night.

------------

Anyone besides me get any good deals this black friday???

Stayed home in a warm bed; then worked yesterday evening. The store was dead (it's a grocery store, so we're not quite as prone to Black Friday madness).

The Black Friday sale is not just the night before. That is just when it begins.

It usually lasts until Saturday night.

I went, my main goal was to provide support for friends who were shopping hard core. I ended up getting coffee and toilet paper, and some cheap xmas gifts for my nieces. The best part was the thrill of the hunt

I planned and prepared for my shopping adventure this year. I had the money and the willingness to spend it ... but I ended up with almost nothing to show for it. I literally ended up getting 6 pair of "fuzzy" socks from a Kohls special, and that was it. The deals this year just seemed very lacking. There wasn't one big thing that jumped out at me as a "must buy".

The ironic thing is the few things I did buy, I ended up getting from Craigs List -- and for cheaper than any of the holiday deals I could find online. I ended up getting my girlfriend 7 season sets of the TV show One Tree Hill for $40 (She's been dropping completely unsubtle hints that she wanted it for months now). Amazon wanted $124.99 just for 6 seasons. I got my brother an iPod and a car stereo system (since his last iPod was stolen when his car was broken into). I still want to pick him up a laptop for when he heads off for college in January, but the laptop deals I saw this weekend for were sub-par machines.

I'm just glad that I have the sort of family who won't sneer at a "used" gift. I know some people are really touchy about that kind of thing. Not everything I get is used of course, but when I see an awesome deal on Craigs List I jump at it.

If there would have been something like Black Friday here, I'd simply stay in bed, in the full knowledge that the world consists of crazy people who'll leave their warm nest to go shopping for things they probably don't even need but will buy anyway because "it's cheap"...

No Black Friday in The Netherlands, as Christmas wasn't a gift-giving tradition, until a few years ago. Our family goes for St Nicolas.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sinterklaas

I bought all my gifts for St Nicolas on 5 december; for us and the neighbors and their 3 girls….that was the easy part, as we had agreed not to spend more than $40 per person.
For the neighbors we'll put the presents in a jute bag; bang hard on their door and run away so they won't see who brought the gift.

Now the difficult one:
Each gift has to be accompanied by a poem: preferably a long one, mentioning the weak and strong points of the recipient. But always mild and funny. Some years I made about 40 poems; for every tiny present, traditional chocolate character (I get a J) or traditional marzipan pig.
This year I've only got 12 poems to compose.

A lot of family's also make a special project of their presents; they disguise it as something typical for the recipient. For example; a video-lover will get a present that looks like a video-recorder on the outside. The aim of this disguises: to have a laugh and to make it hard to get to the present.
We don't do it any more in our family, as it really can be a lot of work.

That's the part I always loved... I once made a huge lego brick with 2 wheels for my little brother.

Was at my moms for the holiday and stayed there while my brother, who takes it quite seriously made his plans, studied the sales papers, planned his route, and, in general put way too much effort into it.

Has anyone else noticed though, that the sales keep starting earlier and earlier and run longer and longer now? Pretty soon it will black weekend, and it'll start on the Wednesday before!
