I think you're right. Not as many deals to be had as there were 5-6 years ago. I usually just go to walmart to people watch and grab a few small things. This year i'm getting the $10 griddle! (normally $20)
People are seriously crazy. If they just got a job for all the time they waited in line, they'd make more money than they save! Really makes me sad when I see little kids outside waiting during thanksgiving.
You are assuming these people actually care to work
