DALLAS/FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – If you are like most North Texans, you’re looking forward to the turkey and dressing.  But when the food is gone and the football games are over, how will you occupy your weekend?  By shopping!

Why not get a head start on the world and scope out the deals before heading to the mall or the big-box store.

If you’ve wondered if it is worth it to fight the massive crowds at the crack of dawn on Black Friday, you can judge for yourself. CBSDFW has done some of the research for you. Most of these sales only last until noon, so if you want to participate in the madness, you will need to set your alarm clock!

The best part is, you can surf the web and eat your pumpkin pie while doing ‘research.’
