Did anybody buy anything or witness/take part in the craziness?  I'm curious how it went.

I stayed away from the sales, but did go to a Peet's Coffee and Trader Joes this morning.  Both were pleasantly empty. Smiley

not this year.  decided to research my purchase (car GPS) more before buying.  in the end just wasn't' sure the sale model was the one i actually want.   will decide and then do the day after xmas  sales .


a friend went to bestbuy / office max   for a 42" hdtv and said by 10:30pm last night there were already 100+ people at bestbuy.  she ended up giving up on that and going back to office max this morning at 4 and was 3rd in line and got the olevia model there.  she didn't recount the bestbuy line but told me it went from bestbuy to 5 stores over (it's a strip mall complex)... which i estimate would probably be about 1000 people.

Not me, either.  There were some pretty good flash drive deals (4 GB for ~$20), but I decided to hold off 'cause what I have is sufficient right now.

Had to work.  Wouldn't have gone out anyway.  Nothing I really had my eye on or needed.

I did have fun driving with the people stopped at lights and such.  Making them believe that I was possibly going to get to Target before them, and they would miss out on the last Cabbage Patch doll.

Oh, good times.
