Ok, so here's the DL on BF.
Yes, I go. It's one of my deep rooted Thanksgiving traditions. Courtesy of my momma. She gave me my shopping gene. When I was little my Granny and aunts would set out on an all day shopping venture, I remember wanting to go so badly. I've always been a shopper. My Granny says when I was little they would give me $5 and I would come home with a whole bag full of stuff.
We have this Black Friday thing down to a fine science. The day of Thanksgiving, we send one of the guys to the gas station for newspapers...lots and lots of newspapers. We have to have plenty to go around. First, we just all go for it. Dividing and conquering the sales ads. Then, we get strategic. We start sorting out the stores, the items we're all looking for and making piles. After that, we compile a master list. We decide where we'll start first and what is most important. We also list any extra coupons that we might have that would sweeten any of the doorbuster deals.
We always stop sometime for a nice lunch and we've been known to even eat dinner before we finally make it back to Wagoner, where we have also been known to hit Wal-Mart one more time before making it home. There have been years when we don't finish up until wee hours of Saturday morning.
We're power shoppers. Black Friday is like our Super Bowl.
One of my favorite tools for Black Friday is my nifty app. TGI Black Friday. It's a great app w/ lists of all the stores and their sales ads. You can even make a list on there. I love lists!
You can also visit BlackFriday2010.com for all the latest sales ads. They will send you email alerts and updates.
This year there will be 9 of us going. My cousins, Lindsay and Kristen will be home for the annual event for the first time in a few years! I can't wait!!
What are your Black Friday traditions? Or are you more of a Cyber Monday person? Or do you hate the whole idea all together?
