It’s that time of year again! With stomachs full of turkey, stuffing, potatoes and more, millions of families break down the doors of everyone’s favorite department stores such as Walmart, JCPenney and Macy’s at 3 p.m. Thursday. We’ve all felt that frustration at least once these past years. Join the Clog on our journey chronicling the many joyous and anger-filled stages of Black Friday.

It’s Thursday. Round up the fam, and head to your favorite store! It’s time for some door-busting.

You’re in. You frantically run around the store, screaming to the rest of your family to get the 347 things you wrote down on your Black Friday list.

You continue to scour the stores for whatever possibly looks like a good deal. The adrenaline isn’t wearing off. $2 for a blue T-shirt you’ll probably never wear? Add it to the pile.

You reach for the last Belgian waffle maker … just as a middle-aged mom snatches it away from you.
