This is not about Friday the 13th, neither is this about the 1940 movie titled Black Friday, starring Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi. Oh, so you didn't know about that one? Well, this Black Friday I am talking about is that one special day that shoppers excitedly look forward to - the Friday after Thanksgiving. Now do I get your attention?
I have never used my skills in Black Friday hunts simply because I don't want the hassle of sleeping on the curb while waiting for my favorite store to open and then elbowing almost every buyer only to find out that the item I really really like is gone! I also dread the thought of circling the mall's parking lot several times and racing for that one teenie-weenie space only to be out-raced. And another reason that is very relevant today is the elevated price of gas. I'd rather save that for another item on my list. And what better way to do that than going online for the 2008 black friday deals.
I had always been wary about shopping online. Now that I am blogging and have read many positive feedbacks about it, I got enough courage to try it a few months ago and last week, and my experience had been very very positive. Right now, I am very excited just thinking about shopping during this year's Black Friday.
I have a lot of godchildren, young nephews and nieces, so checking on Toys-R-Us deals will surely be a must. Since there is a Toys-R-Us store very close to my place, I plan to browse on items that will enrich the younger ones' reading and writing skills as they enjoy their games or movies before going online. For the older ones, I will check on their preferences first before I decide on which stores to concentrate on.
I am very confident that my 2008 Black Friday experience will be a moment I will remember for long.
