Calling all the nutcases..(Heather you know this is you)

  1. I want to hear all about what all the shoppers found today and if y'all are still alive..........
    IMHO it is the single most unappealing thing to do.....and I avoid the stores at all costs ... try not to leave the house the day after Thanksgiving........

    Well what did you get for the madness??? I am sort facinated by the whole thing. I have friends who make this a yearly ritual.......all day.....0600 until the stores close....... I get nervous in crowded places, so its not my thing....this nutcase stays home!

    I mostly got gifts for gift exchanges - (hat, shirts, sweatshirts, socks, puzzles, remote control trucks)

    christmas candy, a bow for a wreath, some stocking stuffer items, wrapping paper (of course), batteries, cordless phone, ping pong balls

    It was actually fun ! my husband doesn't want to go back out tonight.. geez.. :chuckle

    I also ordered some things online this morning.. that is my favorite way to SHOP !

    I'm anxious to see what others got today !!

    Good thread baseline

    One of the big malls here opened at 0130..is THAT insanity or what?? Me? Nope, I was snug in the bed..
    had to be up @ 0500 for work. Still hate to shop, would not fight these crowds for anything!!
    Heather must still be lost in the crowd..

    Have you checked the local police station, Base? She may have gotten arrested for fighting over something for "Bob"...

    I got a couple of Pot of Gold boxes of candy, candy stocking stuffers, and a gift set for inlaws. Would have shopped more except my son was being a royal brat.

    I am an online shopper myself!! Definetly no crowds! I never thought about looking at the police station for Heather, but must be LVRN is bailing her out! Or maybe they found BOB at the mall...........? Hmmmmm

    I have no shopping stories to tell. I also stay out of the malls and stores the day after Thanksgiving. I do have a nephew that works at a store where the sales guys were working in boxer shorts and the sales girls in clingy t-shirts and (I think) boxers also. Anything to draw a crowd. The sales people are 19 to 22 year old and I think it worked, they had the biggest crowd in the mall.

    Its become a tradition for my sisters, mother and I to hit the early "door buster" sales. I just go into expecting to wait and face crowds. Always see more people I know in town than any other day of the year. Today we got separated in Walmart. My sis and I ended up front with Mom paging my lost sister, and we had her purse. Anyway, she was still whining about that this evening, and she is 30 yrs old ! We did find some good sales though.
    And Kimmicoobug- I would never take my brats shopping the day after Thanksgiving, you are a better woman than I!
