    I'm working 6a-2p today. I'll be buying lunch in our cafeteria and I'll pick up tickets for a hockey game on Sunday as I head home this afternoon. Other than that, I won't be buying anything today.

    I will not be shopping today simply because there is nothing I want to brave those crowds. In the past, I have shopped. If people enjoy that sort of thing - go for it.

    Last year Target had some great deals on DVD's. I wanted to to get the first four seasons the BIG BANG THEORY but visits to three different stores saw the shelves cleaned out by the late afternoon on Friday when I got there.

    I'm hoping the tool stores will have some sales today because I need some stuff for my business and we are headed into the slow season.

    Well, that is different. If my wife said I was going shopping today, I would be shopping.

    Like I said: If my wife is getting ready to go shopping, then I'm going shopping, too.

    Re: Black Friday vs Buy Nothing Day

    Retailers in Canuckistan have been jumping on the Black Friday bandwagon to keep people from crossing the border. None the less, I will no be going anywhere near a store today.

    I've seen what happens, and I fear going to Wal-Mart on a normal day, but on Black Friday or Boxing Day, no no no no.
