    That's Wal Mart for you. Black Friday is horrible. Unless you are out buying toys for your kids or you buy plasma TV's for Family members it is worthless.

    Even those items aren't enough for us. If you know what your children want, you can make those things mean much more to them if they get such gifts scattered more throughout the year as rewards for achievement, good behavior, or selfless acts - and shop the sales that happen all year round. Thoughtful gift givers typically make or plan their purchases months in advance based on normal prices and can often save nearly as much by simply being aware of those things when they go on sale outside the holiday season - or at least be better prepared with their budget to handle them if they don't. We start shopping most years around the start of September, watching prices and ordering in advance if necessary, and this year we are now totally done. And even though we officially blew our budget for the season, we didn't have to take on further debt to do it.

    I decided to go with the gf and her sister to a friends place about 10 minutes from the border, they forced me to wake up around 4am where we promptly got across the border, spend about $250 between 5 of us, drove back home about 4 hours later, then had to work until 11pm that night. It was fun, but the sales were not as expected.
