How Much Did You Spend On Black Friday? Big Bucks or Zero Bucks?

How Much Did You Spend On Black Friday? Big Bucks or Zero Bucks?

236 S Madison Ave Richmond ky 40475I almost felt guilty yesterday. I spent the day doing laundry, emailing, cleaning the garage and big finish....LISTED a HOUSE! A very productive day.

I knew a few friends that went shopping for the Black Friday bargains. For the past couple of weeks I have posted a link in my newsletter to find all the deals that would be on that day.

Still....I tried not to look. I've been on a trim the fat budget and I know if I go out to shop, I will just buy things for myself.

Later, I will wonder why I didn't buy a few Christmas gifts. I do have a 3 day rule on buying items. (Wait 3 days to see if I really am dying to own it). Usually, the urge to buy fades as I see I don't really need it.

Today, I heard about the temporary Walmart employee that was trampled to death by shoppers.

Is anything to buy worth this? Why would anyone think that in scrambling for a deal it was OK to step on someone in the floor that is clearly getting injured?? Come on people...where is your brain?

According to CNNmoney.com they are predicting that the sales will fade and better deals might be later.

How much did you spend yesterday? What did you buy?
