I have never been a big fan of shopping at a fever pitch while surrounded by hundreds of other people looking for those, “once in a year deals!” Don’t misunderstand me, I love a deal better than anybody, but not at the expense of being stuck in traffic and waiting in long lines to pay for my items.
