Black Friday in the Middle of a RECESSION!

Everyone has always waited to go shopping after Thanksgiving to catch a sale!! After enjoying turkey and all the trimmings the day before, shopping is the cure to lose the few pounds u picked up. Some wake as early as 3 and 4 in the morning to get the 1st of the best sales available and also to beat the crowd. Many may even camp out in front of the stores waiting on them to open the doors for the 1st customers to take part in all the sale signs they had set up the night before. Extended hours and percentages off bring in even the highest paid of people.
So with all the layoffs and budget cuts who will be out shopping this year? The answer? The smart and savvy shopper. The one who searched for black friday sales beforehand and researched which stores had what they needed and found the one with the least amount of people. Some stores offer coupons and price match but probably wont honor it unless you prove to them at the time that its cheaper elsewhere. The people who bring along friends to wait in line while they go get what they need will be in and out the store in no time. The person who has very little money but knows how to stretch a dollar will be out and back home before the after thanksgiving marathons and movies start on tv. Make sure you are one of these savvy shoppers. Dont get caught up with those in the crowd. Go to the least popular items first and search for the most popular at the underpopulated stores. You will be sure to get EVERYTHING you bargained for and wanted!
Me? I have to work Thanksgiving day and the day after so I may not be out long. I do hope to find a mini laptop and a flatscreen tv for the house. Hopefully I get things done in time to clock in at 230pm. Well Happy Shopping to you all! (Be sure to speak if youre in the Atlanta area and see me...ill be in line with my work clothes and hospital id badge on lol)
