Our local paper had a picture of people lining up to get into Toys-R-Us at midnight for their 6 AM opening. Would you do something like this? Do you shop on Black Friday at all?

I would shop Black Friday if
1) Had Extra Income to spend
2) Had a babysitter
3) Had someone to go with me

No way! I don't usually buy stuff that they have on sale anyway first off, secondly now with so many opening on Thanksgiving night, I boycott it for that reason if nothing else. Plus, it's just insane. Like nobody cares about Thanksgiving anymore, the retailers just care about money and people want to see how many things they can get for Christmas at a good deal. Thanksgiving has all but been forgotten and Christmas is all about money and gifts.

Definitely not for me!

And Best Buy had people lining up on MONDAY for their sale at midnight on FRIDAY...that's just crazy IMO.

"...MONDAY for their sale at midnight on Friday..."

Wow! I though midnight for a 6 AM opening was crazy! That's just out of control.

We had people here camping in front of best buy the Saturday BEFORE black Friday, almost a week!!! No thank you! I am not into crowds, I've never found that great of deals anyway. One year there were a few things I wanted but I didn't go and I ended up finding those same things cheaper than they were on black Friday about a week before Christmas! So nope, I am not a BF shopper!
