Black Friday

If you’re a working moms that’s no longer worried about how you are going to manage Thanksgiving, but instead looking forward to those great Black Friday deals, WMAG is here to help you out.

Personally, I am not one of those people who shops on Black Friday–never have, probably never will. I just can’t handle those crowds! I was at the mall this past Saturday and between trying to keep O from kicking off his shoes, pulling the tags off clothing, screaming (and I mean SCREAMING) “BYE” to everyone we pass, and manuevering the stroller through the tiny, TINY aisles, I won’t be ready for another trip to the dreaded mall until December 24. Or maybe I’ll do everything online. (I say that every year, but I never seem to get it together in time to account for shipping…)

Anyway, enough about me. Here are some resources to help YOU, WMAGs:

Have fun!

    I too have never shopped the black friday insanity.
    I have no patience to be involved with the CRAZY people.
    I might have to go to jail for thinning the gene pool ; ).

  2. I thought my daughter was the only one who yelled “BYE” at the top of her lungs to random strangers. No greeting, mind you, just BYEEEEEE.

    Also, not a big fan of any stores this time of year. Both because of the hyper 18 month old and the even worse nutsos that come out of the wood work to both work and shop during the holiday season.

  3. Ha, amybow. Nope. O does it. He was yelling it repeatedly as we were strolling the aisle of Macy’s last weekend. He gave no greeting either–just the loud BYE. He says it really short, too. Like BYE. BYE. BYE.

    I know people that do, do (hee) the Black Friday thing, but I just can’t do it.

    When SM was little he used to respond to the intercom systems in stores. We’d be at Target and someone would come on saying ” Customer service to shoes” and he’d yell “OK, We’re coming” It would crack me up.

  5. That’s too cute about SM.

  6. I’m a Black Friday survivor. Yes, I’m crazy. But, I went with a friend and we had a really good time. We started at Kohl’s at 4 a.m. and finished up at the mall at 11:30 a.m.

    There’s this perception that everyone is going to be nasty, knocking you down to get at the best deal. But, you actually meet some really nice people. You become friends with the people you stand in line with. One women in Target scouted out a kid’s sleeping bag for me. I thought they were all gone, but she happened to see one and grabbed it for me.

    And at Children’s Place, everyone kept passing down the same 15% off coupon to share. Talk about a deal–all sale items were already 30% off, everything in the store was an additional 20% off, and then we got to use the coupon on top of that. We made out like bandits. My daughter’s Christmas dress was only $8.

    So everyone is in the Christmas spirit, excited about their finds. It’s probably a lot better than dealing with the last-minute, shopping-haters who are out on Christmas Eve.
