Black Friday is one of my favorite days of the year and coincidentally the most ridiculously dramatic days of the year. I've tried to hate it. I really have. Every year I tell myself the "deals" are not that great. Then Thanksgiving day arrives and the ads come. A blessing and a curse. It's so much easier to ignore the hundreds of emails that started rolling in OCTOBER 1st. I have zero will-power over the print ads.
The chaos of this day would almost make sense if I had a team of people and a plan of attack. I have neither. Since all my family members think I'm nuts, I go alone and usually have no idea what I'm after. However, I find that minor detail insignificant and nothing is going to stop me. I'll figure it out when I get there. I coach myself to follow the crowd and start grabbing anything marked "DOOR BUSTER." I can always return it later but I am not, I repeat, I AM NOT missing out on these deals! Whatever they are.
|They have been good this year. Santa promises to not dissapoint!|
So, wish me luck. I have no idea where I will be or why. If you have never been out on this day and are planning your first attempt, I don't recommend following my strategies. While I have never had a "bad" experience on Black Friday, these people are super hard core. Come prepared. Good luck and may the best man
