After today, I am considering staying away from stores until at least mid January! I went to the movies and lunch with friends today, and I ran a couple of errands before going home. It was ridiculously crowded, and there were such rude people out and about. I thought about doing some Black Friday shopping, but I'm not sure the sales will be good enough to get me out of the house. I don't Christmas shop, but I like to find bargains for myself.
