What’s all the hype with Black Friday? Here are my 5 reasons I will not be shopping on Black Friday.
Reason #5 Why I will not shop on Black Friday – The “best deals” are very limited and only a few people will score that 52″ television for $10 anyway. Remember in the long run you will get what you pay for…
Reason #4 Why I will not shop on Black Friday – Most of the “Black Friday Deals” will last for several days and even weeks. It is a proven fact that the high ticket items will be cheaper if you wait until after cyber Monday. The experts report that some items will be as much as 13% cheaper between Cyber Monday and December 13th. Show some restraint people…
Reason #3 Why I will not shop on Black Friday – I do not want to be crushed to death while buying Grandma a new coffee pot for $3. I would much rather die doing something I love and shopping isn’t on my list of top 10 things to do.
Reason #2 Why I will not shop on Black Friday – People are crazy!!! How many nice people have you met when shopping? In general people are not very nice when they are shopping…they are only thinking of themselves and typically are discourteous and even down right mean. No thanks!!! I will stay home and put up my Christmas Tree.
Reason #1 Why I will not shop on Black Friday– I am vowing to make as many of my Christmas purchases from locally owned small businesses as well as buy things that are Made in America. I would like for my hard-earned money to stay in my community.
Now I know I am probably the minority when it comes to my opinion about Black Friday. For those of you who have the shopping bug I suggest you wear your steel toed shoes and pack an extra measure of patience, a bottle of water and a granola bar for the days activities.
Did you shop on Black Friday? Was it worth it? Will you ever do it again?
