Black Friday in United States is The next Friday after Thanksgiving Day. And very famous because almost all stores in US have a very huge discount. Most stores open arond 3 or 4 or 5 in the morning!! I see many people even camping outside the stores to be the early bird. I did that already the last couple year. And wow...i think it's worth it...hahaha...i do all the christmas shopping that day...and really save a lot. So any mylotters have the same experience?

You know, when I was in college I had retail jobs where we had to work those days; man, can those days get crazy. I have never been one to go out shopping that early. I mean, I don't mind going shopping on that particular day, but not as early as some other people go. In fact, I tend to do most of my Christmas shopping now, during these months (June, July) than I do during those months. In terms of buying for myself, maybe if there is something that I absolutely have to have, then maybe... but usually I don't see anything like that, so I stay home. Working those days were insane!

Oh I love going that day. I think I love more to watch the people then even the prices. I do make a list of the stores in which there are things I want and what they have on special. I set up my trail before I go so I know what I want and where to get it the fastest. Once I have hit the give aways and the great specials I go back to stores to people watch and look for things I may have missed. Now in Nebraska the day after Thanksgiving can be very cold so when you are going to have to stand outside a store you need to wear the right clothes. I dress in layers so that I can take off if I get too warm*L* I have been doing this for years and I love it!
