    There is nothing I want that I can’t get just as cheaply at other times. The insanely discounted stuff is usually in very limited quantity. (and something I don’t really need even at those prices) The other stuff is often no more discounted than the weekly sales. I did not participate in the Black Friday madness at all. Instead, I spent Thursday evening with family. Then all day Friday visiting – and being visited by friends. I did OD on turkey dressing and Banana pudding.

    I may participate in cyber Monday though. It depends on what they are advertising that I am planning to buy anyway.

    It is all about following the crowd, the social experience and the like. We all do a lot more than we think because others are doing it and not for any rational reason.

    I didn’t buy a thing on Friday and not because I was doing a no buy day. We just don’t go in for expensive, elaborate Christmas presents. There is nothing I want that is worth dealing with those crowds of out of control people. Once I went shopping the day after Thanksgiving, but only because I forgot what crowds would be there and I needed to get some stuff and I had the day off. Huge mistake. Never again!
