Commercial Break: Holiday Shopping!

My mom and I have sort of a tradition. Every year, on the Friday right after Thanksgiving, we get up at the butt-crack of dawn and go to the mall, to hit the super early "door buster" sales that take place. Usually when we get th to the stores its freezing cold, and there's a bunch of people (always women, for some reason) shivering outside the door of the store, waiting for it to open. But thats part of the fun! I usually manage to score a lot of great gifts at these sales. (And by the way, I just found out that that particular Friday after Thanksgiving is actually known as "Black Friday!"
Anyway, there's this new site that can help you pinpoint all sorts of Thanksgiving deals. You go to this site and look at a list of all sorts of stores, and when you click on a store you like, it will give you a list of all the great deals they have there! That way, before you go out on your wild after-Thanksgiving doorbuster mission, you can do some research and figure out exactly which stores you really need to hit. For instance, click on Meijer, and you get an alphabetical list of every sale they have in the store!
You can even sign up for email alerts whenever your favorite stores add more sales to their list.
So. Before you start your Black Friday shopping spree, make sure you check out this site!

I heart Black Friday. I religiously go shopping at the crack of dawn and am home by 9 a.m. to avoid the "crazies!"
