    heading out in a bit to get layer feed, hoping the feed store of all places isnt over run with shoppers, need some rye grass seed and a quick trip to the bank and it is back to the farm to hide out for the rest of the weekend!!!!

    DOES ANYBODY ELSE FEEL THE HOLIDAYS HAVE BEEN STOLEN BY CORPORATE MARKETING?????

    yep and I really need pine shavings (for a brooder) but the petco (closest thing for that stuff) is in the same shoping center as target and such so there is no way I am going!

    Go to the small town stores an its not an issue. I did my shopping a month ago online..... Why do they call it black Friday anyway????

    Black Friday got its name because its the first day each fiscal year that many stores come out of the 'red' and into the 'black' financially.

    I think... [​IMG]

    Quote:Yes I do! I went out this morning at 4 am in hopes of catching a laptop that was advertised at 199.00 for my son because I cant afford it at regular price. 45 min drive, 35 minute wait in line to get into the store just to be told that item was already sold out, 45 minute drive back home ticked off that we wasted the gas to go there. I have done pretty much all my shopping online for the past few years and have had a nice relaxing Christmas because I didnt get stressed out shopping in the crowded stores and it will be that way from now on! I want to enjoy Thanksgiving and Christmas with my family and friends, not give myself a heart attack trying to get something for a cheaper price. I should have went to the hardware store instead and worked on the chicken coop today!!!
