Are you going out to shop today,or on line shopping?
You do what you have to do & hopefully others will understand.I WANT to go out shopping. But I'm penniless this month.
My budgeted Christmas spending money is paying for a complete brake job for my car.
Me, too. I grocery shop in about 15 minutes. Hate it.I don't like to shop either especially in a store, I even hate grocery shopping.
The fact you didn't encounter a ton of people means one of two things:I just got back. I've never been before and just expected pure insanity, but that wasn't the case. I left my house at 7:30 went to Petsmart, Bed Bath & Beyond, Target, Costco, Grocery Store and Starbucks in less than 3 hours. I couldn't believe how empty the stores were. Got some great deals and Bentley's presents are done :
Good for you! My step DIL actually made a calendar with pictures of her kids on it, family birthdays, anniversaries etc & I thought that she might be coming around. WRONG!!!! When I got home & looked at the calendar, I noticed one birthday was missing - MINE! When my hubby asked his daughter about this omission, her comment was "Oh, well!". That calendar went in the recycling box immediately!I worked retail for too many years to ever find any joy in Black Friday shopping. People are idiots from then till Christmas, and that may be politically incorrect, but it's how I feel.
And I did the same thing with the ungrateful relatives, the year my niece called and asked for her gift card early so she could shop did me in. I told her to never mind, I'd just go buy something I really wanted for myself instead of the $5 piece of crap she planned to get me with my money. She wasn't happy.
