Black Friday 2007

Anyone going to be doing any deal hunting this year? What are you after?

On a personal note. Does anyone know of any good deals at bike related sites or stores?

My wife won't let me near any retail establishment that day on the grounds that me going to jail on homicide charges would be a very real possibility.

I celebrate Buy Nothing Day with a pleasant bike ride and the preparation of turkey noodle soup.

Folks, it's not even Hallowe'en!

I saw the thread and hoped the stock market had crashed.

I hope to and plan to drop out of Xmas this year. I just don't want any part of it anymore. I actually am planning to skip town for the week of Xmas this year.

I never bothered with "black Friday" and such sales. There is no possible "deal" worth the hassle of attempting to shop that day. The whole idea of such a massive orgy of rampant consumerism makes me a little sick, anyway.

Blech.

Staples usually has a great Laser Printer deal on Black Friday for around $125-$150 and a 32" LCD HDTV for $450.
