    Do you participate in Black Friday?

    If so, do you prefer in-store or online?

    And what are your favorite stores to shop at on Black Friday?

    I'm with you. Technology has its place in the classroom but it is not the be-all, end-all of successful instruction.

    I’m a Black Friday shopper. I shop for myself. Never have an agenda. I just browse. My Christmas shopping is done. I shopped online.

    I might just buy something online from Wal-Mart or Amazon. I can do without the crowds.

    I got a huge Amazon box today. I had stuff for DH, Mom, one of the dogs, and DSS & his SO.

    That just leaves stocking stuffers. We have stockings for four people and seven dogs.

    I ended up getting a jacket and beanie hat during the early black Friday sale. Can't wait to see the madness on YouTube.

    This will be the first year in more than 30 years that I haven't shopped on black Friday. We are vacationing and won't be home for Christmas. Family members will be getting souvenirs from our travels instead!

    My family is weird..lol We quit buying gifts probably 15 yrs ago. The way we all looked at it is if we want something, we buy it.
    We used to find a family where I worked and pool our $ to make Christmas brighter for them. IDK why, but we stopped a couple of yrs ago.
    Every other yr though, my bro gives us all 1st class tickets to Hawaii because he can.
    All of our kids are grown and don't need or really want anything. ( That I could afford anyways. I'm sure my son would love a new plane, but I want to retire!! :) I still have to carry on the tradition with a couple of friends though and I can only find stuff for them online. I wish they'd want to just stop, but they like it still. No stores around here for Black Friday. ( 7 hr drive...not happening!)

    My Christmas shopping is easy. DH and I don’t fret over each other. We do some stocking stuffers and maybe a small gift if we find something. We get whatever we want most of the time.

    I bought him a coat earlier. I handed him the iPad and told him to pick out the coat he wanted. I bought Mom a weighted blanket. She’s sick and spends a lot of time in bed.

    We are going to venture out tomorrow for groceries. Our fridge looks empty. It has been stuffed with thanksgiving food all week. Now there’s just some leftover pie.

    Give me online! I haven't needed anything for as long as I can remember. The last and pretty much only time I went out on BF was w/ my Mom just for fun to see & that was many yrs ago.

    Anybody shopping on Cyber Monday? I think I might get one of those smart clocks.
