I make it a habit to avoid any shopping establishment on Black Friday (the day after Thanksgiving). Only once in my life have I broken this rule and that only resulted severe muscle aches from carrying snow globes 30+ blocks. Whenever I think about venturing out on the day after Thanksgiving the memory of the pain comes flooding back and I quickly talk myself out of it.
For those of you who cannot wait for Black Friday, I found a website that you will definitely want to see. I stumbled across Black Friday 2006 which has preview copies of many of the largest retailers in the countries planned sales for Black Friday. It's the perfect place to go and plan you Black Friday shopping trip!
