I don´t know whether to be proud or embarrassed: the only Black Friday shopping I did was at the grocery store and Dollar General. I looked at all the ads, and the only thing that even remotely interested me was a flash drive. I wasn´t going to drive 80 miles for a flash drive! Especially not when I wold have to battle Black Friday traffic on the roads and in the stores. So I stayed home. I did laundry and then went to the grocery store. After that I went to Dollar General and bought some toiletries. Not very exciting!
Today I went to get my hair cut and to visit my daughter for a few minutes. Then I drove to Staples, walked around an almost empty store without buying anything and then headed for the co-op we shop at in Albuquerque. I got a few things there to use a coupon I had that expired at the end of this month. And then I came home.
I hope others got more into the spirit of shopping this weekend than I did. If not, it will be a very bad year for retailers!
