It’s the time of year when we stuff ourselves with turkey and then reach for the Black Friday ads. Yes, this Friday marks the day when shoppers line up for hours before stores open, hoping for big discounts and deep pre-Christmas sales.
I’m always amazed to watch media footage of shoppers crowding shoulder-to-shoulder waiting for store doors to open. Once inside, shoppers rush and grab at toys, electronics, and lots of other stuff.
Question: Are you shopping on Black Friday? Do you love the crowds, the excitement, and the Black Friday deals? Going to spend some serious coin?
- Nope. I’m not shopping on Black Friday. I’m not a fan of huge crowds. I also don’t enjoy the mass hysteria involved with “door crashers” or so-called “rock bottom prices”. I think this type of excitement can encourage me to spend more. I figure, if I don’t need it, it’s not a deal. Besides, I live in Canada. We Canucks don’t really celebrate this day.
- I’m not spending a cent. Zero. Zippo. Zilch. I know there will be Black Friday deals online. But I’ll keep my money this Friday. You can count on it.
