Yesterday I woke up early to go shopping for Black Friday sales. I was expecting long lines, crammed malls, and crazy deals, but to my surprise, it was lower key than years past. I knew the recession would have an affect on shopping, but I didn't think many could pass up the biggest shopping day of the year. I had expected killer sales, but no such luck. Most stores only had 20-40% off deals. I still had fun and got a lot of Christmas shopping done. I was able to spend every penny wisely, and still had a little money left for myself. I'll be posting pictures soon!
