The only time I went was back in 1999 and my mom bought me my first computer because I was going to college that following May and she knew we would need it and it was a good deal. It was a horrible experience so I've vowed to never do it again.
Last year my husband and I shopped online and and I found the boy's Christmas toys on sale and he bought a big screen tv for a really good deal at Tiger Direct. Tiger ran their sale from Friday to Monday, and I think this is what I will do this year as well.
Sam aka Julia, I don't have a sister to go shopping with so it would just be me, and I don't particularly like shopping in stores in the first place.
