It's Aloha Friday


Wow, another week put away in this year, another week closer to the holidays and less than a week away from Thanksgiving! Here is the question this week.


Will you be going out shopping on Black Friday or using the Internet to make your purchases for the holiday?


I will be doing most of my purchases by the Internet, rather than heading to the malls. Don't have to spend money on gas and fight the crowds.


Aloha Friday is brought to you by An Island Life.

Andrea McMann said...

No. Not at all. Yuck. I'll stay at home, where it's warm and peaceful, and eat leftovers. :)

Some of both. :) I go out every year on Black Friday - as much for the experience as the actual shopping. This year I'll probably be doing more of my actual shopping online than ever before though too.

I am SO excited about black friday this year! For YEARS I was a manager in retail so I had to be there SUPER early and stay til late! So I never REALLY got to experience it! Then last year I had a tiny baby so we didn't go out til later! This year, I have warned my mom and aunt that stays with us that we WILL be out early and will shop til we drop!

Jen E @ mommablogsalot said...

Probably neither - I am pretty over Black Friday and I doubt I need anything they'll be offering this year.

When I first heard about Black Friday, I wished I live in the US. Online Black Friday sales, hmmn, maybe I should check that out.

I have already done a lot of my Chanukah shopping. I will have both of my boys (5 and 18 months) home with me on Friday, so shopping alone with them on that day . . . NOT happening. I will try to get things done before that time or try to do it during the week if need be.

Jennifer said...

I'm not sure yet. But, I do love to shop online though. =)

I certainly hope to be out there! I love standing in line @ 3:30am to get the best deals! I always met the nicest people!

dhw said...

No black Friday shopping for this chicky pooh!! I will be laid off next week and possibly longer into December.

Abby said...

I will NOT being shopping on Black Friday. I will be at my parents house and my mom is not into it. I love shopping if it is for something fun like shoes for myself or clothes for my son, but I don't like being smushed in a store with a million other people. And yes, I will probably be doing some internet shopping again this year!

Shannon said...

I am a die hard true and true Black Friday Shopper. I'll be at Best Buy at 4am than on to Micheals, Target, and than Wal-Mart! That is how I roll!

Kathleen said...

I'll most likely be visiting my parents, since we're at my in-laws for Thanksgiving :(

I doubt I'll go shopping, since I can't stand the crowds. I'm really going to try taking the handmade pledge, and I say bravo to you, Robin, for highlighting so many artisans on your blog!

Janel said...

I hate crabby, pushy crowds. Unless I find some fabulous deal that I can't pass up I'll be staying home. Last year I found the best deal of the year on Amazon!

Amy @ Thoughts from the Mrs. said...

I'm not crazy. I don't shop on black friday. :)
instead, we're going to a parade and putting up the tree. :) Aloha

Sherrylinn said...

I never go out on black friday. I cannot stand crowds. We won't be doing much shopping this year, but most will be on the internet.

Catherine @ The Blonde Diaries said...

I will be shopping online for everything that I possibly can. I started about a month ago and have a good portion knocked out. I think I will try and see what the specials will be for Friday and then wake up fairly early Friday morning and shop online when the sales are posted. No need in going to the mall and dealing with a crowd.

Just Jenn said...

we are never home on Thanksgiving weekend so no black friday for us, I dont like the crowds of black friday

Lisa C. said...

I will probably be doing what i can on line since I'm on my own with 2 one year olds... Going shopping at 0400 doesn't seem too appealing anymore, I don;t care if they're giving the store away... OK maybe if they were totally giving it away.. lol

janetfaye said...

I don't go out shopping on Black Friday.

LOL the crowds can be ruthless for a good bargain!

I do my shopping throughout the year.

no, not shopping on black friday...I never do, doesn't put me in the holiday mood and is too just yucky, in my view..
