Black Friday Battle Plans
The ladies over at Twitter Moms ask, "Whats your black Friday plan of attack this year?"
Gosh I guess I should really think about that, huh?
Two years ago, my sister and I decided it would be fun to go to the mall that was opening at midnight and since they were doing a gift card giveaway we go there at 8 to get in line. The store doing the giveaway let a crowd of a thousand build up, then at midnight opened ONE SINGLE DOOR. The result? People were trampled, shoved, hit, kicked, and a baby stroller WITH A BABY IN IT was flipped over. My sister and I have both had crowd anxiety ever since.
Last year we took a much less ambitious trip.
This year, I am shorter on cash and need to get the most bang for my buck. However with my quasi crippled knee, I don't think I can take the rush of the crowd. I love that Target has sale prices all day long and usually has more than enough merchandise. Even better and less stressful is shopping at Target.com
I know Target is on my list, but I need to get my grubby little hands on the Thanksgiving day paper before I can finalize my battle plans! I know for sure I will print out any coupons and have my giant box o' coupons with me.
What's your plan?
