$0. My parents, on the other hand, (only) spent $100. Kudos to them for their restraint.

$0. I'll probably go take a gander tomorrow, hopefully the crowds will be down by then.

Around $200.
Mostly on some Thanksgiving food stuff. We celebrated today due to their work hours, and made my older sister cook. Bought $180 worth of food at Meijer.

Thennnn we went to the mall and bought a little bit of stuff. I just got a CD and a new iPod charger.

Partly because we don't have Black Friday here, partly because I was staying the **** indoors.

Did anyone here about the 34 year old worker who was trampled at Wal-mart in New York? o_O I think they took their shopping a little too seriously

$0. I worked on Black Friday like I do every year.

Might I add that I work in retail, but I work for a supermarket chain. Black Friday is usually our slowest day of the year.

Black Friday gets it's name from the fact that retailers can finally get out of the "red" in sales.

Zip.

I don't really like crowds, and the deals aren't *that* great anyway.

Yeah that WalMart employee that got trampled, I heard about it on the morning news or whatever. (Sad business) Then I decided to *not* go shopping at all that day.


This siggy is about truth, beauty, freedom, and above all things love.

$0. I greatly dislike going shopping in the first place. Even more massive crowds would not make it any better.

I voted "$1-$250."

Not Christmas related, though. I went to Burger King and also picked up some Cokes from the little store down the street from me. I would have done that anyway.

We got a $1200 computer for about $600 on a doorbuster deal to replace our dying desktop.

I usually stay indoors on Black Friday, but this year I bought a new guitar and some DVDs. Making rent and insurance payments was substantially less fun 3 days later, but, uh...yay consuming!

We don't have that here but in short I tend to stay away from crazy sales (like Boxing day here in Canada). I prefer to pay a little more for less crowds and less loss of time.

Though I could say that I spent somewhere in between $1-$250....gotta feed the car! (dammit I've been +-8 hours on the road )

The only day I ever do major spending is Boxing Day. But, I'm sure if we had Black Friday up here, I probably would've spent a lot of I had it.

£0. No black friday, we have January sales, which is quite pointless seeing as everyone is skint from Christmas.

Nope, none whatsoever. Not because of financial issues but because I hate the crowds...I'm willing to spend more money if it means I don't get trampled at a wal-mart *cough cough*

$0. I have no money. Well, none I can spend. Well, none I'd choose to spend. I've got other things to do with my money than go and fight with thousands of irritable people so overeager to save money that they end up trampling people... (and yet another side mention to the Wal-Mart incident)

I avoided the mobs and stampedes and bought a bunch of DVDs off Amazon.com.

Was quite the haul for about 85 bucks. Some of them were tv shows.
