To get the best black Friday deals, it's important to have tracked your purchase prices ahead of time, many of the "deals" being offered aren't great deals at all, they're just hyped.

A lot of these things I actually already knew! I am honestly looking forward to black friday shopping this year because I actually have plans to go out among the craziness and get stuff!

I try to do most of my shopping online. I was shocked to see what fact #3 said about employers losing $450 million due to employees doing their cyber Monday shopping. I hope to take advantage of a few sales online this weekend.

Wow I knew a lot of people shopped on black friday but I had no idea it was 75 million of them. No wonder the stores are so crowded. I like to do my shopping online with the other 75 million people.

I'll be one of those at home on Thanksgiving Day doing shopping online, as well as on Cyber Monday. It's surreal that so much much is spent for this holiday season. I'm only using gift cards which I earned online, so there will be no money spent out of my household. :)

I do most of my shopping online, and really watching prices on things I intend to purchase to make sure I'm getting a good deal. I have only actually gone out to shop on Black Friday once!
