Black Friday can be a black day indeed!
This is my first WFMW Post, because I rarely have anything useful to add, and yet I blog daily...hummm.
Last year on Black Friday, I did not go shopping. It is my goal really every Black Friday, to not go shopping. I hate shopping on a good day, and Black Friday is like a bad shopping day on crack. No thank you.
However, I am a sucker for a good deal. So last year, I got up early, (8am!!! Whoo Hoo for me!) grabbed a cup of the good coffee and…got back in my bed, in my pj’s, with my laptop and did me some online bargain shopping.
Here’s the trick; many stores have in store pick up. So I got many, many good bargains, and just have them hold them at the store. That way I can pick them up at my leisure sometime after the crazy-shoppers have gone back to work. Also, no shipping! Of course, I take advantage of free shipping whenever I can, but many shops require you to spend a certain amount before they’ll give you free shipping and if you overspend just to get the free shipping, well, not much of a deal anymore is it?
So there you have it.
PJ’s, the good coffee, my laptop, amazing Internet deals, free shipping, and in store pick up; that my friends is how to spend Black Friday!
