a Christmas shopper's complaint is one of long-standing.

First of all, I want to thank everyone for the incredibly sweet comments on my last post. It's so hard trying to balance everything, but it's good knowing that there are other people out there in the same boat. 

For all of you in the US, I hope you have a great Black Friday! Whether you are hunting for deals in stores or online, now is a great time to get started on your Christmas shopping started.

I live in Canada, and we don't have Black Friday here. Over the past few years, however, stores and websites here have started picking up on this tradition. So, wherever you live, it seems like now is a great time to get some good deals.

Here are some statistics to think about this year!

Are you shopping for Black Friday?

  14. i've never been black friday shopping because i don't have the patience for the crowds! i much prefer "cyber monday" where i can comfortable shop the online sales from home! :)

  15. Interesting statistics! I've never taken part in black friday... I can't decide if savings or sleeping in is more important. So I always go with sleeping in :)


  16. Sadly I choose sleeping in, maybe next year! Also if you have a minute id love to hear your thoughts on my latest outfit post

  17. in Italy we don't have black friday either but I did some online shopping :P

  18. That's so true! I'd actually love to go Black Friday shopping in the U.S., I really wish we have that here. i'm just thankful for those online shops that had Black Friday sales and ships worldwide :)

  19. We both went out for Black Friday. For me, it's about a tradition of going with my mom and cousins. I don't usually buy a ton but love to hang out with them and help them shop. I usually get to carry all of their heavy bags around! Had fun this year!!
