  19. I'm not a Black Friday shopper. I don't believe that shopping should ever be a full contact sport. I spend the day baking cookies with my kiddos instead.

  20. Parking lots and crowds have turned me off with Black Friday shopping. A shame too, because I used to enjoy it. These days, I buy before the rush, after, or shop online. I need my sanity!

    Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!

  34. I never shop on Black Friday but this year last night I went to one store for one item-pillows. They are normally forty dollars and were on sale for less than five. I purchased two for me and two for the boyfriend. My nerves hated it but my head thanked me!

    Thanks for being a part of the hop and for the giveaway.

    Happy Holidays,

  35. I love Black Friday shopping, (I live in a small town and people are pretty friendly, no blood or bruising) but this year they started at 8pm on thursday so I decided to stay at home and read. I went out about 11:30, when the stores were almost empty and still got all the specials that I wanted.
