I'll start the ball rolling with my shopping list:

..................................................................

If I think of anything else I must have, I'll add to it.

I have had an email from one of our regular retailers offering some of our usual purchases @ 25% off and free delivery on orders over £80. I shall put in a large order as this will cover many presents for the coming festival, not mentioning it till December.

Shall we rush out for bargains, no chance.

No, I will not be joining any scrum. I will be working all day in the peace and quiet of my office. I hope that the nearest I come to a scrum will be when I jostle with my wife for a go at the executive biscuit tin.

No! The sight of people fighting at stores last year was disgusting.

Well that was painless. Bargain shopping done and no sign of any stampede.

Online shopping - that's the way to go.

Def not the thought of driving down narrow roads for an hour or more to a big store then getting kicked to death by matters holds no appeal, will probably trim some ponies feet a job I don't particularly like but its better than dealing with crazed bargain hunters.

Save yourselves the horror of the actual shops with a look at the best Black Friday deals we've found online.

Mostly tech, of course!

Our local 24hr Tesco was closed from Midnight till 5am to 'Prepare' for Black Friday, so tough if you wanted to do any 'normal' shopping overnight. Then open from 5am to 7am for Black Friday shopping only. Reopening at 7.30am for normal shopping.
