Going Black Friday Shopping With My Husband

The Author of this post is Jefferson Maldonado

Usually my husband hates shopping but there is one particular day of the year even he will get up bright and early, sometimes in the middle of the night, load up in the car with me and hit up all the stores and that is on Black Friday.

We started going shopping together on Black Friday a few years ago when I begged him to go with me promising him lunch at his favorite restaurant as a bit of a bribe. Ever since then he has become hooked. We each have our own favorite stores that we like to check out. I prefer stores like Target, Sears, JC Penney's or Walmart while he likes stores such as Best Buy or Game Stop. While our tastes in shopping may be different it has become a fun tradition we really enjoy doing together.

This year we plan on starting out really early. We plan to get up at 3 a.m., set our home security alarm (Home Alarm Systems pricing), and then hit all our favorite stores. We get to shop for kids this year too since his sister moved to town with her three kids so we plan to see what sort of deals ToysRUs has as well. It will be fun getting to shop for kids for once!

I joked with my husband on Thanksgiving that maybe in a few years we will be shopping for our own kids on Black Friday. He just smiled.
