My US Black Friday paper arrived this am, about 3″ thick! Virtually every major retailer, both bricks and mortar and online, have Black Friday Specials. While shopping online, before Black Friday, has always been possible many bricks and mortar retailers are now opening at 5:00 or 6:00 PM on Thanksgiving Day. So with the Amazon App in hand on my iphone and newspapers in hand I went shopping. While I did have a few things that I intended to shop for many of the items I bought where what I would consider “impulse” because the price was so good. I have translated the prices into Canadian Dollars @$1.30 including taxes and shipping when applicable so there is no confusion….
