After the leftovers from the Thanksgiving dinner has been consumed and disposed of, America prepares itself for another event, and it’s not Christmas. Black Friday, the day milions of Americans do some serious Christmas shopping – even though it’s not even December yet. Falling on the 4th Friday of November, Black Friday is one of the most major shopping days of the year in the USA. The tradition started in America, but other countries on the other side of the pond, such as the UK, has also jumped in on its practice.

Why Sit Black Friday Out

Initially, Black Friday was intended to be a simple holiday shopping season. But it turned to be something much worse what with the traffic jams, endless lines and despoiled stores. It has become so bad that many buyers chose to stay at home. Here are the reasons why.

You don’t have to go to the store physically in order to do your Black Friday shopping. Many of these shops also offer the same wares online anyway. You would do well to research what to buy what where though as some will also not offer all the same items online.

Go search for “black friday fights” and you’ll see why it is not wise to go at all. Plus, all the staying up all night just to line up and camp outside the store seems ridiculous. Sure, you save some money. But if you have to fight an item with someone or hurt other people for it, it’s not just worth it.

Why it is Best to Shop on Black Friday

Although many is boycotting this shopping practice, there are still those who stick to tradition and considers Black Friday important. Find out why.

Black Friday, in its essence, is all about discounts. And who can say no to that? Doorbusters are mostly made-up discounts due to a result of an agreement with suppliers. Featured items gives some profit to both retailers and manufacturers despite its low price. The rest are the so-called loss leaders. But they’re all just different ways to offer discounted prices.

Also, it is not bad to admit that many just can’t afford even the most basic of necessities anymore. Opportunities like these where they can buy food, clothes, toiletries, and household items at a low price is more than enough to help stretch the budget even more.

Anyone who has a competitive streak has turned Black Friday shopping into a sport, a test of human endurance. If that kind of thing gives you thrills, then this event is for you.
