Deal or No Deal
Black Friday and Small Business Saturday are now behind us. Many savvy shoppers, crowd "avoiders" and deal seekers are geared and ready for GO - Cyber Monday.
My sister and I dared to brave the crowds of Black Friday only to find there wasn't a crowd. I assume that our turkey meal caused a bit of "iTis" and we didn't hit the stores at midnight like we originally planned, like we always plan, because we typically get up around "normal time" on Black Friday. We went to the mall, JC Penny, Ross, Marshall's, Starbucks, the mall again, Big Lots, Von Maur, Dilliard's, Gap, Apple (they had a crowd) and some shoe stores - no real crowds.
The Pros - no crowds anywhere. No lines, no running, no ratchetness, just easy breezy shopping. We weren't looking for anything in particular, we just wanted to be out and about. She found an iPod home deck radio thing, some tights, and I found some clothes and a mixing bowl. How exciting!
We also had a few good meals and enjoyed people watching. We looked at houses and what not too. (Jumps for joy)
The Cons - Some simpleton hit my car and left. Too bad he thought that he was in the clear, someone got the tag number and left a note. Now I have to deal with the drama. The other con is that I have way toomany leftovers and they now have to dub as lunch for the rest of the week. Hearing about the frivolous fighting, pepper spraying, and foolery in the news is always a con. There's nothing about a TV, toys, and a 1 dollar pair of panties that's ever serious enough for me to engage like a rabid animal.
What did you guys do?
Did you catch a lot of great deals? See some ratchetness?
Tell me all about it.
