Not Much Spending

November 22nd, 2017 at 01:27 pm

I personally haven't spent much of anything the last three days. I did buy one Christmas gift, but that was paid out of the Christmas budget.

My husband did get his hair cut. I just now sent him to the store to get three food items. While he is there he is picking up the alcohol he wants for the holiday weekend.

We don't have plans to shop in stores on Friday...or likely any other day this weekend. If I know of a deal on something we were going to buy anyway I would likely pick it up online. The crowds are just more than I'm interested in dealing with.

We are having very nice weather, so hope to get out and enjoy the weather and maybe attend a free event downtown on Friday night. Otherwise, I'm going to be very happy watching a couple football games, watching a movie and playing games as a family. Oh, and we will probably decorate for Christmas at some point as well. Who has time for shopping with all of those fun activities?!

It's is my first ever Thanksgiving that I haven't spent with my oldest daughter or my parents! Seems a bit strange, but I'm also glad not to be flying this year.

Wishing you all a wonderful Thanksgiving!

    I'm noticing that frugal people are generally not too interested in Black Friday. And I'm seeing that people who are spendthrifts are all over it!

    I will not be leaving the house on Friday...no interest in Black Friday. I've never shopped on that day. I ran some errands today and shopped online for Christmas gifts. I'm about 75% done shopping. I'll probably finish the rest online if possible!

    We have found that going grocery shopping on Black Friday is a lot easier since most everyone is out at the other stores fighting for bargains. CB I think you have a point...I don't think most frugal folks are going to fight the crowds.

    We sometimes go to the grocery store on Black Friday. The ones that closed on Thanksgiving have meat marked down that would have normally been sold, but with the day off it is too close to expiring. But not retail, ever.
