Attention, holiday shoppers

You know, I am not the biggest fan of shopping. Don't get me wrong. There is absolutely nothing wrong with shopping, I just prefer to shop with goals. I might browse or window shop to relieve boredom, but I couldn't spend my entire day at a store. So, when I go Christmas shopping, I shop with intended destinations in mind—sometimes, this requires me to only search the internet for the best price. However, this weekend, I decided to join the rest of the world in stores.

I did not partake in the Black Friday sales, but I am glad I waited. The following Monday, I received several coupons in the mail for substantial discounts. So, did I miss out on the sales? No, not at all. In fact, I believe that waiting was the better choice. Other shoppers probably stumbled across several great sales as well—which explains why it was so ridiculously crowded. I wonder if shoppers will wise up next year and get some rest instead of waiting for stores to open at some early morning hour.

Either way, happy shopping to all; and to all a good price!

  1. In my opinion, unless you are buying BIG like a huge, flat screen HD TV or something there is no point to go stand in line with the other crazies at 3am. Black Friday shopping is just a twisted ritual that people put themselves through, for the heck of it.


Tell me something good.
