Happy Thanksgiving! I just want to write a post quickly before you decide to shop on Black Friday! Oh, you may not know that I used to shop with my two small boys on Black Friday so long ago. Now, I’ve decided not to shop on Black Friday for some reasons. Shopping in the retail stores on Black Friday takes more risk, more customers and employees from any retail stores are getting hurt physically and emotionally. I believe that you know about that. I do not know if you have shopped on Black Friday before or not. In the meantime, I just want to give you a heads-up before you rush off and shop on Black Friday.
4 Reasons Not To Shop On Black Friday
1) Dangerous Crowd. Ouch! I hate to wait and stand in line for the longest time (2-3 hours) to finally get out of the retail stores! Many customers push others with the carts crazily into the crowds, they end up getting hurt. Amazon Online would be great idea to save your time! Advice: Visit Amazon or online retail stores.
2) Black Friday Addict. I admitted that I was a “Black Friday” addict, I loved to buy Hp laptop or desktop from Walmart every year, they were great “Black Friday” deals! But I realized that it was not worth for me to shop because I currently have 4-5 computers and laptops. I have one Samsung tablet, my husband and two sons have three iPads with them. Most of our computers & laptops are working properly except they need to upgrade Windows 10. That’s good enough for me and my family. Since you are “Black Friday” addict, you may consider to check in with your finances and other stuff you have at home first before shopping. Advice: Manage your finances and check what you have at home first before you shop.
3) Customers Feud. Oh, crap! I had seen that many customers fought over some products before. It was crazily scary up there. Fighting over stupid products sounds very selfish. I do not want to end up there just like the movie, Jingle All the Way. I think that fighting over one amazing toy is not so important. There are plenty of wonderful toys and products though online shopping in order to save your energy. Advice: Find the matched products through online shopping with the Black Friday deals.
4) Family Neglect. It’s very sad that many families are not thinking about spending more time with each other. I had seen that many families went shopping with their children between 12 midnight – 5am on Black Friday. It’s very poor that the children must be tired and sleepy. It’s bad luck that the children might have seen toys when the parents buy for their Christmas gifts. Advice: Spend more time with the children and family first, you can shop later.
