By staying home and shopping you are avoiding driving, waiting in traffic, waiting to park, waiting to pay, and driving back home. Your time is worth money, and the time you put into any shopping should be taken into consideration when considering your savings!
6. You avoid impulse purchases.
While you may head out with a shopping list, you can easily fall off track and make impulse purchases should other items catch your eye. This isn’t as likely when shopping online, since you tend to search just for the items you need.
I recommend making a list of everyone you need to buy for and several items for each person! Then as you find items in the Black Friday Ads you want to try to grab make a list by store! That way you know exactly what you’re after when the online deals go live!
7. You avoid crowds, crabby shoppers, traffic jams, and cramped parking lots.

Shopping on Black Friday means grabbing lunch while you are out, which is often pricey and time consuming. When you shop at home on Black Friday, lunch is just a simple walk to the kitchen. No waiting in line and no $10 sandwiches.
