We go out Black Friday to view the chaos. My wife and I get some warped amusement in watching raiding hordes and the social carnage they bring with them.
LOL! That's the only reason I'd go. Watching people fight over material B.S. and put themselves in debt is entertainment.
I rarely shop and purchase things, PERIOD. Same clothes for the last 7 or 8 years (new drawars here and there and socks though), same TV for the last 5 years, same computer, same car, same EVERYTHING. Bought a foreclosed house for mega cheap.
The only thing I really buy is food and gas, insurance, water, electricity and natural gas for the furnace, although I have a ton of firewood that is OH SO enjoyable to heat the house with.
Well, yea, I do splurge on fishing tackle, but come on, it's FISHING! I do eat out a few times a week as well.
I also drink cheap beer; been on an Ice House kick lately. Tasty stuff! High alcohol content. 30 pack of bottles for 14 bucks.
