Black Friday Quiz

This quiz is stolen borrowed from Karen at Nothing But Knit – she often has nifty quizzes along with other interesting content. Check out her blog!

Today is Black Friday, the traditional start of the holiday shopping season. How about a quiz to get us through the craziness?

  • Do you shop the sales on Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and/or Cyber Monday? What is your favorite way to shop?
    I don’t go to the sales on Black Friday. It’s way too people-y, and also we mostly aren’t shopping for the kind of things you need to worry about massive discounts on. We give each other books and yarn and so on – no TV sets or things like that. I’m not against it for other people – it’s just not for me. I do not like that stores have started to push the sales back to Thanksgiving. People working it retail already have it hard enough – why take away one of the few days stores are closed? I do sometimes do Small Business Saturday, though I try to shop at our local small business through the year anyway. Cyber Monday can be pretty good, so will often take advantage of discounts there.
  • Have you started your gift shopping/crafting?
    Not crafting for anyone this year, and not a lot of shopping to do. I have started thinking about it… there’s a list! But sadly no, I have not shopped yet at all.
  • Are you one of those people who has all your gifts wrapped and ready to go early? Are you a last minute shopper and final moments crafter?
    I used to be all about getting it done early, but not in recent years. It used to be a point of pride with me to have my shopping done and everything wrapped by Thanksgiving. That has not been true the last couple years at all. I will likely be done by mid-December. Because I more or less have to be done by then for everything to get mailed and to its destinations by Christmas!
  • Do you have a tale from shopping trips past that you wish to share?
    Nothing particularly dramatic – but then I mostly don’t shop for anything at all on Black Friday or the last week or so before Christmas ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Sometimes I shop on black Friday sometimes I don’t. If I shop on black friday then it is really per computer. I would not go out to a store on black friday. Oh wait I did. I went into the dollar store and came out with 20 things. For twenty dollars. we are scaling back a bit on gifts so its easier on everyone. NOT giving up gifts by any means. Just doing a draw and buying for one person
