BLACK FRIDAY IS COMING!!

He he, every time I say "Black Friday is Coming", I get the Game of Thrones Meme going through my head!  As you know one of my three jobs is I work retail.  Seriously though as much as I hate giving up my Thanksgiving night (this is hopefully my last year), It is wild seeing people going after what they consider deals.  I know some are great, but its funny watching people rushing to get to a item that was cheaper three weeks earlier. So after getting to know so extreme Black Friday shoppers here are a few tips that I learned that might just help you get those items you want.

Now I know all my religious friends are going to say Christmas is all about the birth of Jesus, well we will put religion aside.  Just remember everyone Christmas is a holiday meant for family and friends. So this time of year load up the food around the table an just be together and love each other!
