Ok. the dust has settled from "Black Friday" and the numbers are coming in from that monumental day of sales.  So Just how much money did you spend shopping on that day after Thanksgiving?

If you though spending some $300 that day was pretty high then you were actually a thrifty shopper.  According to a report in Time Magazine, the average American "Black Friday" shopper spent $423.  That total was a whopping 6% higher than last year's average sales.

Perhaps we should hold a different color Friday throughout the year and maybe the economy just might turn around.
