Haiku Friday: Black Friday Revisited

Haiku Friday
Black Friday is here
Want a digital frame cheap?
Only ten in stock!

I am thankful for
the huz, who wakes up early
to shop the big sales

But this year we’re poor
so no crazy spending – just
looking for cheap gifts

I’m cheating today. I started to write a haiku about Black Friday, and then checked my archives and found I was writing a nearly identical haiku to last year’s. So I revived last year’s haiku for today, adding one new haiku to the end.

We’re going out into the madness again, hoping to score some inexpensive items to wrap up for holiday gifts. Our list is far shorter than last year’s, with the biggest difference being that most of the items are in the under $10 range.

Are you shopping for deals this weekend?

To play along for Haiku Friday, follow these steps:

1. Write your own haiku on your blog. You can do one or many, all following a theme or just random. What’s a haiku, you ask? Click here.

2. Sign the Mister Linky below with your name and the link to your haiku post (the specific post URL, not your main blog URL). DON’T sign unless you have a haiku this week. If you need help with this, please let me know.

3. Pick up a Haiku Friday button to display on the post or in your sidebar by clicking the button at the top.

REMEMBER: Do not post your link unless you have a haiku this week! I will delete any links without haiku!

  1. Almost everyone I know is cutting back this year quite a bit. We just have to remember that the price of a gift doesn’t matter so much as the thought behind it.

    Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!

  2. I rarely do the early morning thing the day after Thanksgiving, but I might go just to go, even if I’m also not going to be spending much.

  3. That is too funny. I posted about this topic as well! We definitely have a small budget this year with a job layoff.

    It’s my first time, and I’m a little scared…

    Wishing you luck in finding some bargains!

  4. I don’t do black friday, although it’s possible I will go out just for fun w/my Mom & Sister tomorrow afternoon… I sort of dread it, but I love them so much!

    We are probably worse than you Christina. Last year there were no gifts and this year will probably me another version of it. It’s just too difficult, so we just do something special together!

  6. Hi, I love Haiku and have put some up on my blog for Haiku Friday. My name appears twice in the Mr. Linky list, I forgot to make it a direct link the first time. 🙂

  7. I will have a frugal Christmas this year as well…my rule is, if I can’t afford it, I don’t need it! LOL

    Happy Friday!

  8. Boy I’m pretty good. I didn’t even come look at the theme and that’s what I ku’d about LOL

    I did it. Won’t do it again. But the boys are done! Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!

  9. Yup … just about everyone is cutting back this year and/or looking for real bargains. Good luck to you ;–)
    Hugs and blessings,

  10. We were just talking about black friday on the tram ride home tonight. I suppose I really need to start thinking about the shopping for upcoming events! Yikes.

  11. Personally I try to avoid black friday like the black plague.

  12. Glad you fessed up. Funny how the sentiment remains.
