There are so many reasons:
1. I hate crowds
2. I hate rabid suburban moms and old ladies fighting over a scarf.
3. I hate standing in line.
4. I hate not being able to find a parking place - and end up parking on the grassy knoll out near the highway.
5. Nothing is worth me getting up at 2am in the freezing cold to bum rush a store. Not to save a few bucks.
There you have it.
However, I do have a few shopping tricks of my own. For one, I always make a list and I try to stick to it as much as possible. I always make a basic budget. I really do think it through.
I tend to shop before Thanksgiving. There are just as many sales and not so many people in the stores. Also, I am a big fan of online shopping.
As for last minute shopping, not afraid of that either!
There you have it - out of all of the posts in this project, this is my least favorite. You know, shopping is therapeutic for me, and there is something about Black Friday that makes me break out into hives. It tends to take the pure joy out of it.
What about you? Do you DARE to face the crowds?
