Black Friday Shopping

Yes. I get up at 3am.Yes. I make a list. I use or and they send me emails every day. Yes. I get all my shopping done in one day. No. I don't bring the kids. Although one year I did bring the stroller! It was so nice not to have to carry heavy bags everywhere. Yes. I shop for stuff we need and not just presents. Yes. I buy all the birthday gifts for the year in one day. Then when we get an invite my kids shop for their friends in our gift closet. Yes. I love the crowds. No. I don't go with a friend tops. Yes. I love it. Yes. My husband is amazing...He decorates the whole house, puts up the tree and takes care of the kids all day so I can shop! Yes. It's worth it. I save a ton and I love enjoying Christmas and not thinking about gifts ALL THE TIME. No. I don't always stay within our budget, but I stay pretty close!

Yes. It's a part of my AMERICAN THANKSGIVING tradition. Whew! Growing up in Canada did not prepare me for this but I have risen to the challenge and can shop with the best of them!

Any other questions about Black Friday? AND YES, I come home after a long day of shopping and barely any sleeping the night before and I wrap every present. The tree is full for a whole month.

And yes, I do forget most of the presents by Christmas day! I'm presently surprised along with everyone else! LOL :)
