I didn't shop because I had to work. By Thanksgiving I had all but three people purchased for. I will finish this weekend.

Not really. My fiance and I stayed home and did our shopping online. We ordered gifts for my sister and best friend, and spent less than $60.

nope - i didn't even shop this year. granted we were traveling to the family this year so we knew that taking anything on the plane was going to be a challenge, and besides that - i don't really have anything that i feel like i need to buy this year since i am SO limited with funds.

I went to work yesterday, so instead of spending money, I earned a little extra. It worked for me :-)

I never go shopping on Black Friday. People are scary that day, and it really doesn't do much to get me in the Christmas spirit!

I didn't plan to spend anything. I didn't buy anything. So yep, I spent as much as I planned on Black Friday. My almost-bare wallet is happy :)

I avoided shopping yesterday. I tend to do all my christmas shopping last minute.

Yes, I spent a little more than I thought I would. But it was worth it. :)

I didn't spend more than I wanted too, but I was also just looking to get my niece and nephew something. I got almost all of my shopping done for my whole family, and I saved about $100.

My brother always calls Black Friday "National Buy Nothing Day". In my family, we've always avoided shopping on the day after Thanksgiving. I had to work yesterday anyway, so I didn't spend anything.

I didn't shop at all. In fact, I helped haul some stuff to a consignment store.
