I wont be shopping on BF I will be WORKING

I never shop on that day though it is my idea of hell.

I have decided this year, although I usually try to some extent, to do as much of my shopping locally as possible. I would rather my money went to local independent business people.

That said my holiday shopping is going to be meager. Firstly I am broke and secondly I really dont feel it is an appropriate time for indulgent spending.

I only did it once, at one store...
JoAnn etc has great deals on fabric and crafting stuff. My late SIL went the Christmas before she died... we were going to make it our tradition.
She was gone 3 days before the next Thanksgiving... so I never did it again.

DH and I may go after I am off work at 3, only if my parents decide to take all 3 kids this weekend and not just the boys.
Not because its' black friday, but just because we CAN!!!!!
(please let my mother take pity on me!)
Not that there's anything wrong with that.....

I'm with the group who don't leave home on Friday. I don't have a dishwasher, and usually host Thanksgiving. I also throw a Christmas party a week and a half later. So Friday means making Turkey soup, salad, sandwiches, washing dishes, scrubbing .... well, you name it. I take my time at it, I might add. Sip of wine, scrub a dish. My husband and I have also pretty much decided to skip gift giving, and simply do not shop that day. So Friday is turkey soup/sandwich/salad day, and slowly working at getting the house in shape for the Christmas party. P.S., among my holiday guests are Muslim and Jewish friends, and no one seems to have a problem with "Merry Christmas!"
