I slept in for $0.00.



Not having to drive in crazy traffic or wait in lines was just bonus.



Definitely worth it.

maybe the clue's in the name... I would grin to that, except not for the first time, but hearing on UK news only today I am reminded in America (where else) some store rush (riot witnesses said) had killed somebody, and that was the member of staff killed who got trampled on? or perhaps was so stressed had a heart attack?

I went to walmart and got a brand new winter Jacket for $8 YAY

The key is to go into the store WITHOUT a cart unless you absolutely need it. You get stuck if you have a cart, but you can weave your way around without one.

People complain, but traffic really isn't THAT terrible. It just like dinner hour, but at 4-5 am lol.

The parking lots are packed though lol.

you said something foolish because you didn't bother to listen to the conversation. hoodedclawjen made a nice post back at the beginning of this thread that will interest you. get over it, this isn't about you and me.

Can we please try to keep the thread on topic? It's about the deals people got, not personal issues and the craziness that leads to death. Thanks

$8! Awesome I didn't even think to check clothing at Target... I'm not sure it was even on sale. It was a MADHOUSE.

If I didn't have to work on Black Friday, I probably would have just stayed home. If I went out to shop at all, I would have waited until later in the day when the crowds die down.



As it was I worked from 6:30am-11:30pm on Friday. A long day, but it went by quickly. I was glad to have the weekend off!
