I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. We kept it low key and didn’t do much at all. We decided to put off the turkey until Saturday because we are lazy this year (and besides, the turkey was still frozen). We watched Outsourced (not bad), Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade on TV, and some football. Man, the NY Jets messed up pretty bad in the 2nd quarter so we changed channel after that.
For Black Friday, we will go out after all. We’ll just go to 2 stores and hope to get it done in less than an hour total. I’m just getting some 50% off socks and Mrs. RB40 wants some BOGO (buy one get one free) Pashmina scarves. I’ll put off the rest of my Black Friday list and try to get them on Cyber Monday instead.
Anyway, here are a few articles from the Personal Finance Blogosphere.
