I love saving money, but not as much as I love sleeping

I’ve never been a big fan of Black Friday. I don’t like crowds, and I don’t particularly like to shop. I do love saving money, but I can usually find pretty good deals throughout the year if I look hard enough. Maybe I could save a little more on some things on Black Friday, but honestly, the inconvenience isn’t worth it for me.

Last night, after a fantastic Thanksgiving Day with my family, Tony and I drove home. We slept until 8 a.m. (pretty late for us these days). Our new recliner was delivered around 10 a.m. We chose a recliner instead of a glider for late night feedings, because I think it will be useful for longer than a glider.

Today I’ll be decorating for Christmas. I usually wait until the first weekend in December, but I’d like to get it done now just in case I have the baby in the next week. Beyond that, we have nothing planned. It’s 33 degrees outside, and we’re staying home all day watching movies and staying warm.

No Black Friday deal is better than that.
