Aloha Friday: Black Friday

11/20/09


Here is how Aloha Friday works from Kailani's blog An Island Life:

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

I am NOT a morning person. Anyone who knows me knows this very well. I don't function until I get some caffeine in me. I think it's crazy to get up early in the morning. I remember several years ago the Black Friday madness of waking up at 3 AM to get in line at the toy store for those super deals. Waiting in line for 2 hours in the cold. Madly dashing into the store and hoping I didn't get knocked into. Hurrying to pick out the items I need only to end up stuck in a line that never moved. Feeling exhausted after 5 hours just to see the smile on my son's face at Christmas.

I haven't done that in a long time.

My Question For You This Week Is:
What are you doing on Black Friday? Are you one of those early morning shoppers or do you stay at home?

Sleeping in and going to Starbucks with my hubby. #1 priority is to stay away from any mall, Target, or other retail store.

Last year, I was pregnant and very sick but my husband went out. I don't have any plans to go out this year but he may if there is something we *need*. I am not a morning or crowds person so it isn't a good thing for me to be out during those sales.

I used to do Black Fri mornings a couple years ago and got some GREAT savings! But the last 3 yrs I've done almost ALL my shopping online. And I've found that Online BF deals are AMAZING! Check out amazon, OMG, I did 80% of my shopping and saved a TON there last year!

I was just saying last night when I saw a commercial for some early morning Target sale, that I would never in a million yrs. get up that early to shop. I have done some shopping already and am ready to scream from it- lol! I might start ordering some stuff online instead!

Oh goodness! Nope, I stay at home. Though my husband has a couple of times gone to one store if they had an awesome deal. It has to be awesome for him to leave cuz he HATES crowds:)

I am an online shopper all the way baby! BTW, sooooooooo glad to be back!

Sometimes we go out. I think we may be staying in this year.

Alicia said...

Good question!

I've never been shopping on that day, and I still plan to keep that tradition...lol.

Braley Mama said...

I stay home and decorate for Christmas, and hope to make new traditions with my little girls on that day!Of course as they get older I might be in those lines to get that "must get toy":)

I've gone out the last 3 years but this year I don't think I will. I would love a laptop from Best Buy, but I'm NOT spending the night outside for it!

Joy said...

I've done the whole BF thing and it's not worth it. Sleeping in that day.
