My husband and I were on our way back home after gathering with his family today when we passed a Best Buy. There were already people lined up, tents and all, and this was about 4:30pm

Our equivalent shopping day in Canada is Boxing Day, the day after Christmas. Many of the same deals are available online. A few years ago, I got a deeply discounted new fridge by ordering online as soon as the retailer's website "opened" the sale pages. I love the internet.

Yeah, there are some good deals, but the things I'm interested in getting, I can't afford this year.

It's 5:40am w00t. I'm going to Old Navy, mainly b/c I need me some clothes for myself and the things I want are on sale. In several hours I will wake up, again, have my new clothes and my Christmas shopping DONE.

I work at Kohls. I started at 4am and worked til 12:30. It was insane all day, but our lines moved fast. We had a great system for moving people along. People are crazy, though. 2 of my friends were working today too, one at Office Depot and one at Wal-Mart, and they both said things were nuts at their stores too. There were fistfights at the Wal-Mart where my friend works, but, hey, nobody ever accused Wal-Mart or it's patrons of being particularly classy.

AND THIS is the reason I don't do black friday. Look how insane people get over 'these supposedly great sales'. I mean pulling the doors off the hinges is so insane I can't wrap my head around it. to act like this over a 300 dollar big screen tv? so ain't worth it.

So tragic and just plain awful.

Awesome, actually. I got up at 5, was at the mall by 6. It didn't seem too busy, besides the fact it was 6am (it was about as busy as it is on a week night). I got everything I needed - some sweaters for myself, a fleece vest to wear under the jacket shell I just got, a few more pairs of socks since my puppy keeps running off with mine, a sweat shirt for my brother, a pair of pj pants and slippers for my sister and my brother's gf. The only thing I couldn't get was some pants (didn't have my size in the color I need) and a red scarf (didn't have any red!). When I got there the line was all the way to the back of the store, but I didn't have to wait to try stuff on and by the time I paid I only had to wait about 30 seconds. There was no one in line behind me.

I went back to bed at 7am and got up again at 10am. Took my puppy to the pet store at noon to get cat food b/c the cats raided the container two days ago and it was not busy at all, not even another dog in the store. I stopped at Panera to get lunch and a gift card for my parents and walked right up to the register.

So, by 1pm my Christmas shopping was done, I've got my winter clothes, the cats have food, the puppy got his socialization for the day, and I still got almost 8 hours of sleep.

very cool. glad you were successful we drove by the mall this morning on some other errands, and there were a lot of parking spots, so maybe it wasn't as nuts this time around.

I do all my shopping at outlets. It is easier and stuff is usually cheap. I work my whole weekends, so I go during the middle of the work week and there is not a problem with crowds and parking.
