Default No Black Friday Shopping, anyone else refrain?

I watched a YouTube video that said the average person spends a bit over $1000 Black Friday through Cyber Monday. I could not believe it.

Me, I do not need anything and have had no interest in going to a Mall or online shopping.

Have you been shopping this weekend? If yes, what did you purchase?

No shopping here yet, but I do have some fabric in my cart that I will purchase today but certainly no where near 1000.00 and certainly no where near 100.00 either. I hibernate during this time of year, it’s crazy out there!

I did some online shopping and got winter undergarments (now called base layers) and then at another site bought 3 spools of thread. That is all. No malls or crazy online shopping sprees.

I never shop on Black Friday. In fact, I hardly shop at all. I handcraft some gifts and the rest get money.

I didn't this year but often shop this weekend, all online. The only stores I'm interested in actually going to are bookstores and fabric stores. For everything else, it's online.

I've never shopped on Black Friday & it's probably been at least 15 years since I've set foot in a mall. Wow! $1,000 spending. No wonder so many people are up to their eyeballs in credit card debt. That's not for me.

I shopped last week before BF. I got the free baby deal with my Accuquilt purchase. Best part is no crying or diapers.
Not a mall shopper so no crowds for me.

We did go out Black Friday shopping as my YA children find the lines and crowds fascinating.......they grew up in a different country btw. All combined no where near 1000. The kids bought maybe $30 in dvd’s and Ugly sweaters for a Christmas party.....14.99 each with Kohl’s cash etc attached. I bought some small appliances like another crockpot an electric knife that are free after rebates, and bras.......in all after rebates, Kohl’s cash, some coupons, we spent $30 there. Dh has picked up some power cords etc he has wanted.....at the most $100. I did the big purchase last week when I picked up an extra sewing machine......a basic Viking for $399. All my attachments fit so my daughter can sew as much as she wants over Christmas holidays, and so can I.
