I’m so Proud of ME…

I’m so proud of me… I didn’t hit the stores on Black Friday… Can’t comprehend how people can stay up all night… I need my beauty sleep… No can’t do… I went out today and got the same bargains and didn’t even have to stand on-line. I’m practically done with my Christmas shopping and didn’t have to stress or jump on top of people in order to shop…

Remember! It’s all a gimmick… Marketing strategy to get us there and buy… If we don’t get one thing, we’ll end up with another. I’m the perfect example… I can’t just go into a store and buy what I need… I usually leave with ten other items especially if I have to spend $25.00 in order to save $5.00. As much as I try keeping track of what I’m spending before I get to the register, it always goes beyond the $25.00… Lately, when I receive a coupon at the cash register – I throw it out… I tell myself, “I don’t need anything extra” and leave the store… It’s the only way… Otherwise, I end up with many things I really really do not need… Sounds familiar…  And besides what am I going to do with so much crap…  I’m taking baby steps and I tell myself daily, I have everything I need and don’t need more extras”…

Here are some myths about Black Friday I found in WCNC.com.

Myth #1: You need to camp out all night so that you can find a great deal. Well, if you are looking for the advertised “door buster item”, then you may want to camp out, but these days, more and more Black Friday deals are online as well as in the store. Last year, DealNews found 70 percent of the “in-store” Black Friday deals were also available online for the same price or less.

Myth #2: If you get buyer’s remorse because you were too ambitious on Black Friday, you can return it all. Not so fast. Stores really tighten up their return policies and some stores will only give you store credit. Remember to ask for a gift receipt for the person who will get that ugly sweater, if they don’t have one, they’ll be stuck with it or they’ll just be able to get store credit.

Myth #3: All stores have plenty of Black Friday deals. Not the case! In case you didn’t know, the “door busters” are priced exceptionally low and that does two things, it creates a lot of “PR buzz”, and it brings in the shoppers into the store. But remember, there are only so many of those good deals, for example, last year, Best Buy offered up a sharp 42” HDTV for $199, but the retailer was only guaranteed 10 TV’s per store.

Be careful not to get trampled…

Good luck to all those brave souls that stood on-line all night long….
