By the time Black Friday rolls around I’m almost done if not completely finished with shopping for my family and friends. Black Friday for me is useless. I don’t need deals for things. I already bought the gifts I’m going to give, and peace of mind is worth the price for me. I may not have saved that extra two dollars, but I saved how many HOURS of my life buy shopping in August or September rather than now?
For others though, Black Friday (or Boxing Day for all them Canadians and United Kingdom people) is a competition. A sport. The thrill of the hunt. To each their own I guess, but I prefer spending time with family and friends…. When I can at least. Let’s be honest, retail workers are AT these Black Friday sales, we just don’t really get to leave after a big TV is purchased.
