Shopping Madness!!!

  • What does the day after Thanksgiving mean to you? If you can roll yourself out of the house, like most people or should I say women. YOU go shopping right?
    This day has been called the official first day of the Christmas shopping season OR
    Black Friday. It’s not an official holiday but many take the day off anyway just to
    get a head start and a mad dash to the malls all over the USA. Black Friday can be traced all the way back to the 60’s and is deemed the biggest shopping day of the year by retailers. So if you are heading out with the masses you need to do some home work prior to leaving the house. Here are some tips you will want to write down and fellow.

  • Make a shopping list of all the people you will be buying for this Christmas.
  • Determined the big ticket items first and try to get them first as most savings will be found on Black Friday.
  • Get your newspaper and check out all the specials, see if any ads are offering early incentives. Look for the items on your list.
  • It is important if possible to research your market area before Friday compare prices.
  • Most important advice I’ll give you is this. STAY HOME and do yourself a favor.
  • GO Online and check the web for all your items on your list. In most cases you can order them with your favorite online retailer offering free shipping for the holidays.
  • You will be avoiding traffic – saving on gas – NOT standing in line for everything You do – buy – or eat!
  • If you’re a die hard shopper and you like trenching through the masses than
    Happy shopping – drive safety – and shop till ya drop!

Happy Holidays

Well, I am ingnoring Black Friday ...and to be honest, not shopping at all!! It has been about three years now.
At first it was kind of weird, and I did feel guilt ..... but now it opens up the true meaning of what Christmas should be .. :O)

You know you right! We really do get caught up in the commericalization of Christmas.
The true meaning has been lost.
My favorite part is family and seeing all my kids and grandsons.
It's diffinately not about shopping!
