    TBH, this is the first year for me as well and more out of necessity than anything else. It was actually quite quiet although being in Canada I'm not that surprised. Passing the parking lot of Walmart was a different story! I'm glad I didn't go there.

    Two round trip plane tickets to Washington D.C., two tickets to a conference on cyberwarfare in Washington D.C. and a hotel room for three nights
    none of which were on sale, (but the plane tickets and hotel room were cheap because it is off season travel then)

    Not one thing. Black Friday is BS. Buy after the holidays if you want real deals.

    Exactly. The days after xmas is the best time to shop. I did some ordering online for clothes, but I found better discount codes than the discounts the sites were giving.

    Not much, all online also.

    I did not go near any mall, shopping plaza or store.

    I bought some christmas presents for my children and wife. Mostly at amazon and toysrus. I was waiting for friday to see if the price would be cut further but it wasn't.

    As a side note, I'm finding the prices on amazon not too competitive. They're generally higher then others.

    One thing that bugs me a lot with amazon is a feature that looks new. Instead of clicking an item to the price, or adding it to my shopping cart, I have to proceed to checkout to see the price. Even then, when I've done that and cancelled the process the price was not that great, in fact it was not even a "sale" price, just a normal price that you'll see at bestbuy, sears, costco

    There was nothing that I was looking for. But, today I am "supporting my local small business."

    Maybe I'll get socks..

    I finally bought an N wireless router. I bought it from Newegg, though. Screw going out and fighting those crowds. Plus, there was football to be watched at home. :)

    Absolutely nothing. I didn't even buy the milk my wife wanted me to get at work. :eek:

    Be careful with Front Loader washers. They all have a nasty problem of mildewing around the door seal. You'll generally want to leave the door cracked when not in use.
