Black Friday, or Thursday

Weekend wishes update: Another weekend that breezed on by… at this rate, it’ll be Christmas before you know it! I was able to get a little gift shopping done, hung the Christmas lights up outside (thanks dad!), celebrated a birthday, baked some cookies (recipe), got an eye exam and managed to find time to snuggle with Karl. Not too shabby!

Tomorrow I am going to start to pull together my annual Black Friday wish list. Most ads are already online, either leaked or live on retailers’ websites, so they shouldn’t be too hard to find. I am a little bummed that retailers keep moving the time earlier and earlier every year. I mean, Wal-Mart is opening at 8 p.m. and Target’s doors bust at 9 p.m. I’m pretty sure I haven’t even completely digested my Thanksgiving meal by that time. I fondly remember a few years ago when my sisters and I would stay overnight at my parents’ house to wake up at 3 a.m. so that we could go get in line for the 5 a.m. opening time. I’m interested to see how other consumers react to the early start times. Will there be fewer people out, or even more crazies?

To be honest, there is never anything that I really need to buy. It’s just a time to hang with my mom and sisters, get a little too excited about $5 pajamas and laugh out loud far too many times to count.

Do you shop on Black Friday? What do you think of the early start times? What are you hoping to get your hands on?

  1. I love Black Friday shopping!!! I think it’s a little silly that everyone is having such early start times. The J.Crew Outlet by me is opening at 9 pm on Thursday, so I’m hoping to do a little shopping for my family and be snuggled into bed before midnight 🙂
