For the first time in three years, I didn’t have to brave the Black Friday lines last night. Instead, we stayed home and watched television. After sleeping in a little this morning, my girlfriend, her aunt, and I drove out to a few stores to take advantage of the sales. Even though we were well past the prime hours, I still managed to find the few things I was interested in without hassle. Even Toys R Us was a breeze! While the lines were a trifle long, they were nowhere near as bad as they would have been a few hours earlier. Something to be said about doing this the stress-free way.
