Anyone do any shopping. Or well anyone's wives forced them to go shopping.

I was dragged along. Actually scored some good deals. Big craftsman rolling tool cabinet for 99 bucks. Shop vac for 15. Set of China sockets and ratchets for 10. Little electric heater for the living room to help keep oil cost down(experiment) 50 bucks

I went to the grocery store. Not much else. I went by a Walmart and the parking lot was packed.
Wish I needed a new dewalt tool. Napa had certain dewalt tools buy one get one.

Since the sales start on Thursday, what does black Friday mean anymore? Just a stupid day for folks to beat each other up on!

Now they have "orange Wednesday"  Dont ask me what the h3ll that means. It would make more sense if it was a deer hunting holiday.

I dont even buy dog food for at least 4 days after Thanksgiving. I stay as far away from those nutjobs as I can

Never have never will. Getting so I can't stand large crowds anymore let alone those type of crowds. My sisters stood in line a few years ago just to be literally run over by, well unsavory people who stood back and charged the door. I try to shop locally and stay out of the big stores. I would rather buy from the local mom and pop stores. My wife is the same way. Just saw on the news tonight people rushing the doors at a few stores. I look at Christmas a little different than some. Lately I and the wife have been making gifts in the wood shop and her sewing to give for Christmas. In my opinion Christmas's meaning has been lost on commercialization and strictly sales.

Went along, not really wanting. Wife and G-daughter. We went to Rural King first, I got some of their pants and a few trinkets the women bought. Tools all on sale, don't really need much. DID show wife the ratchet MM wrench set I would like to have. I have fractional sizes and use those the most of all my wrenches now.

  After that had to go to fancy upscale areas and they went into foo-foo bath smells place, hobbie shop and kids clothing stores. I went into Eddie Bowers and looked at  $70 flannel shirts!! Even at half off, still over-priced!  People really buy this stuff and think it is THAT much better product?  I was out quick!  We did eat at Chick-Fil-A place, first time for me, not too bad really. Best Buy was very busy, and even the Petsmart where we did buy the dog some treats. Went home afterthat.

 

We KNOW that men's shopping days are Dec. 23 and 24, when we go out and buy "anything" cause all the hot stuff for year is all gone or picked over!

I worked.

 

I am happy, happy, happy.  I didn't get stomped on neither did I end up without any jingle in my pockets.

No amount of savings will get me to Black Friday shopping.  I did it once and NEVER AGAIN.  People are insane on this day!
