#1-Hubs is always out hunting, and I’m not about to drag the kiddos out at ridiculously early hours and then try to keep control of them in mob packed stores.
#2-I’ve always gotten most of my shopping done prior to the 28th-and usually the things I still need are not of a high enough dollar value savings to make it worth my while to fight the crowds.
#3-I’m afraid I’ll overshop. Honestly. I really do have a tendency to go crazy when in shopping mode, which is why I try very hard to avoid situations where I am put into a “shopping frenzy”. I avoid the Mall etc, and I avoid these “Huge Sales” unless I have a very specific need.
#4-I really didn’t need any of the big ticket items. Yes, if I were in the market for some expensive electronics this Christmas, then it might have been worthwhile for me to hire a babysitter, get up at an awful hour, pep myself up on caffine, get into a freezing cold car and drive over half an hour to the stores in order to fight a cranky mob of folks. . . . Yeah-I might have considered it if I was going to save $100s of dollars. But I’m not in the market for anything like that. .
So what about all of you? Have you already been out and done some fantastic bargain shopping, or like me have you avoided it? Is anyone gearing up for Cyber Monday?
