I have never been a big Black Friday shopper and did whatever I could to avoid shopping on Black Friday. I thought I'd change because I am now a Mom, and I need to be going out there and getting the latest toys and gadgets for my kids, but my son is only 9 months old, and his birthday is like 2 weeks after Christmas, so yeah, I am not going out to stores and risk getting trampled on. Last year, I went the Amazon route for most of my shopping, and I'm sure a lot of other people will do this too because you don't need to set foot in a store. Since Walmart is having such big sales online, this eliminates a lot of stress for people. If I do decide to shop, I will try to shop at mom and pop stores, and ones that are privately owned to support my local businesses. My family and I have cut back on spending a ton on each other, which for me, is super nice because then I don't need to stress about what to get everyone. This year is easy, a lot of people are getting gifts that include my son. Super cute and easy.
