No Thank You, Black Friday!

Visualize a "Black Friday" sign, with a circle around it and a slash through it. If I could find a clip art of such a sign, I would post it front and center at the top of this blog. But since I can't, you'll just have to imagine its presence.

After doing a little research, I've decided that getting up at an ungodly hour on the day after Thanksgiving, standing in an ungodly long line, and fighting with an ungodly mob is not only ridiculous, but unnecessary.

See I know a little secret. Most "big chain" stores are offering their "Black Friday" prices....you're not going to believe this....NOW...as in TODAY...as in go to Target, Toys 'R' Us, or Sears and you'll probably find that they've already marked those big savings items down. They're just not advertising it!

So if you've got that big item in my mind, and you're willing to camp outside of Toys 'R' Us the night before to get it, well, you might want to check it out this weekend and save yourself the trouble.

You can thank me later.

Oh, and if you do in fact find THAT item at THAT price, drop me a comment and let me know!
