Black Friday Math

Some simple math for you black Friday shoppers –

40 inch TV – Regular price = $299. On Sale = $198. Savings= $101.
If you go and camp out 12 hours before you save $8.41/hour (just above min wage). If you camp out 24 hours before you save $4.20/hour. If you are one of those that will go out on Monday you’ll save $1.40 for each hour spent sitting in a parking lot in the cold. If you are already out there it’s $1.05/hour.

Ask yourself – What is your time worth? I’m willing to bet that your child, husband or wife would much rather have that time spent with them than have that new TV set. Anyway, food for thought.
