Haha for the most part, but it fits my build very well as it features a seam around the arms and a lower collar (which is what I was looking for).

I have my highest respect to the people who drove very early on icy road to get the best deal:)

Got a Dell s2417dg 24" g-sync 1440p monitor for $469 pre-tax. Also got back $46 from Ebates for that so I'm pretty happy. Everything else I purchased was not a boxing day deal.

Old Navy: jeans for $15 and two pairs of running shorts with zipped pockets (so important for me) on clearance for $5.50 each.

Well considering I almost never buy anything at all on Boxing day, I bought quite a bit in the last couple days...

2TB Seagate Backup+ Drive $99 less $25 coupon @ The Source
Logitech G410 Mechanical Keyboard $59 @ Best Buy
Logitech G502 Mouse $49 @ Best Buy
Wacom Intuos Art Graphic Tablet - Medium $219 @ Best Buy
Office Chair $117 less $10 coupon @ Staples
TP-Link Archer C2600 $108 @ Visions

I still need a microSD card, but I haven't been able to decide on 64gb vs 128gb and U3 vs. U1.

bought nothing because deals are lackluster, so I slept in instead. Plus, I didn't want to deal with the huge crowds of people.

Just bought a few BDs (five of them, one is a gift as well) from Best Lie--a few of them 4Ks even though I don't even have the ability to use the 4K discs in them, they were all cheaper than their regular BD editions! Those and an Intel 600p 256GB from CC at $100 (Iprobably shouldn't have bought this lol but the price seemed too good to pass up).

If you didn't buy anything (which is probably the majority)
I would have thought the same but with the sheer number of people I saw out there today physically? I dunno, seems like a lot of people were spending despite the deals not being anything great.

I did the exact same thing. The first year I never went out on Boxing Day...

Logitech Marathon M705 and 128GB Lexar USB drive from Best Buy.

I was even looking for reasons to convince myself (even called an enabler, lol) and couldn't get a good enough reason to get anything else.
