My sister and I attempted to go black friday shopping after Thanksgiving....and we were wildly unsuccessful!
This year many of the sales started at 10pm. For some reason I assumed the stores would close around 8pm and then open up again at 10pm. But that was not the case. The stores were open the entire day, and people started putting merchandise in their carts super early! I have no idea how early, but it could have been at any time during the day. Then, they waited in line until the clock turned 10pm and checked out. Therefore, when my sister and I showed up at 9:15, there was nothing left on the shelves for us to even try to purchase! SCAM! I don't think it was fair for the stores to allow people to stock pile their carts. What's more, is that I don't think those people really got to spend Thanksgiving with their families! They were busy at the store all day!

What about you? Did you attempt Black Friday shopping, and if so were you successful? Next year I'm going to shop online!
