While many shoppers braved packed parking lots and long lines in search of Black Friday deals, others say they'd rather miss out on the sales.

Some consumers say struggling to take advantage of the price cuts isn't worth all of the hassle. They say they prefer to stay home with their families during the holiday weekend.

Those boycotting Black Friday say they will start their holiday shopping when stores calm down next week.
