  • I'm still undecided. If there's a great deal that's difficult for me to pass up, I may; but, I won't be waiting in the long lines in the blistering cold to get a toaster. That much I know.
  • I find that I don't save enough to pay for my time and energy to do that. I don't even want to wait on a normal day so I will pass. i don't do the after Christmas stuff either. I did that one time a LONG time ago and swore it was my last and it has been. Not worth it.
  • Oh hello NO! I kill someone first. Don't like crowd's.
  • I never went shopping on black Friday but I'm thinking of doing it this year just to experience one time
  • Absolutely not. I am sleeping in. I will probably have a hangover, anyway.
  • The only way I'll be up that early on that morning is if I'm still up from the night before. ;)
  • No. I'm sleeping late so I can work back 12's from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m.
  • I'll be waking up at 5 A.M. because I start work at 7 A.M. If there are any really good sales on something I really need, I might wake up a little earlier to shop.
  • No only no, but HELL no. I try to have all my shopping done before Thanksgiving. I enjoy watching all the people scramble about trying to find the best deal all the while knowing that I am all done with my shopping and have absolutely nothing to rush around about. On the other hand, I have a 'someone special' to buy for this year and I am not sure what to get him... I will probably be putting his gift of until I get a hint or a fabulous idea... Got one? I could use the help :(
  • No, I will be at work decorating the store for Christmas. When that is done I will go home and relax.
  • No Christmas shopping for me this year. Broke up with the g/f last week. But, the glass is half full, as I will be saving about $1500
  • No but i do put in a lot of overtime this time of year.
  • Nope. I never do that. I usually have all Christmas gifts wrapped, tagged, and bowed by Thanksgiving. No rush, no fuss, no crowds, no stress :)
  • Nope, I used to send my husband out with a list of what to 'wade through' to get but We just don't need anything that bad anymore. I'll shop carefully, even online and get what I need some other way. It's just not worth it.
  • I've gone in past years, but I can't afford it this year. I'm cutting down on my Christmas gifts this year.
  • probably but not for a toaster, want to get a laptop for my son
  • I might show up at Harbor Freight with a headache and pick up some tools. I don't shop how everyone else does it though. I call in my order as I am driving in, pay for it over the phone with a credit card, and pick it up. I normally don't wait in lines -- what a waste of time.
  • Not anymore. Lately it seems like it's a bait-and-switch tactic for the retailers. Meaning, the store only keeps a few of those super deals on-hand, and sells out to the people who were in line way ahead of you. Such disappointment.
  • I don't go shopping the day after Thanksgiving. Besides I will be in the Virgin Islands over Thanksgiving. :)
  • f*ck, no. I'll be spending that time with my in-laws since they'll be in town. Screw shopping with a bunch of batshit crazy consumer whores.
  • I won't be getting up early, but I will be shopping the day after Thanksgiving. Hubby and I are looking for a new TV. Luckily all of our Christmas shopping is done.
  • I did that once. I then found that the advertised merchandise which would give you rebates will only give you one per household, etc. and it includes a wide range of products. You end up buying about a dozen and only qualify for one rebate. $2.00 out of spending $48.00. My sleep is worth more than that. That $4.00 toaster usually is the very bottom of the line. Made in China out of recycled material and the cheapest they can make. Doesn't last very long. Also, the lines are very long and it can be below zero and usually is below freezing standing in that long line outside the store in the wind.
  • Oh hell no. :) I could just picture it... 5am: wake up waaaay early = in need of coffee = $3 easy at local coffee chain (which I'll refrain from listing here) 6am: Waiting in line = realizing breakfast was not eaten because too asleep to realize = $3 muffin from same said-but-not-said coffee chain. 6:30am: Waiting in line while in car to even find a parking place = $2.19/gallon while idle (not to mention driving TO the mall and back IN traffic...tack on an extra 2 gallon/$4.30) 7am: Finally fing a parking place, only to stand in line to even get IN the building. Parking: $5 "early bird" special. 7:30: Need more coffee in order to prepare for the mad rush = $3.00 8am: The Chaos begins. Begin to find stuff that while it's "a great deal" wasn't entirely anything you needed in the first place. A pair of pink fuzzy slippers? God Aweful color, but Wow! They're 50% off! Etc etc. 9:30am: Collapse on a bench with bags in hand. 9:45: Continue on with the savings! 11:30am: Tired out, need some fuel...grab lunch: = $10 Noon: Home...time to count the savings! $100 original price item, with 30% off! So...$70..that's great! Oh...but wait...Add on $30.57 of "other" expenses... Waaaaait a minute......
  • Nooooooo!
  • I never wake up early I dont care how cheap the toasters are!
  • no way!!! I think people that do that are crazy!!!
  • No Way
  • H** no.
  • I've finished my Christmas shopping, except for the gift exchange we do at the office, so I get to sleep in!
  • I admit I'll be out there. Not for a toaster...I do it more as a tradition of spending the day with one of my best friends. We do find some wonderful deals & that always helps.
