So today is Black Friday, the day that companies slash their prices in a bid to get you to buy that must have item.
Are you one of those people that wait all week for Black Friday. Where you eagerly go looking for that must have item, that is on your childs christmas list. Or that much needed present for your partner. You know that today is the day you will be able to buy it cheaper than you could have last Friday. Or you sit looking at amazon or wherever with no idea what you want to buy. But look for that bargain to come up where you think, that is a great bargain I need to buy this. When in reality you have no idea what you are going to do with it. Or who you are going to give it too.
Or, is Black Friday just another day and you can not be bothered with all the hype. With the fighting in the shops, or the dashing around. If you want it you will buy it when you want to buy it. Not just on a certain day of the year.
We all watched open mouthed of the horrors last year, in Asda where people were fighting with each other over television, and get injured in the process.
Have we turned into a nation of greedy shoppers where they want it because it is cheap. Whether they have a need for the item or not, or we just like a good bargain.
Now, I do love a good bargain, and love going around the sales. Getting items at a much reduced price. If there is something I want then I am happy to wait and buy on a day like today. But I will not be forced into the hype and buying for the sake of buying it, just because the world of marketing have decided that today is the day.
Saying all that, I will be looking at the deals today, because there is one thing I am after, and if I can get a good deal on it then I will buy it.
Is there any deals you are looking for today?
Do you just buy for the sake of a good deal?
Or are you just not bothered by the hype?
