This very well could ruin what is inside your presents this year...sorry in advance.
Towels. $1.74 towels. People were trampling each other for cheap towels.

According to thewire:

Walmart shoppers upped their towel consumption by one million cotton squares this year, fighting each other for bargain bath towels and washcloths starting at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving day, when the mega retailer began its Black Friday sale.

Overall, 2.8 million towels were purchased, making the towel this year's top-selling item across all their stores. According to Walmart, the towels, priced at $1.74 per bath towel or pack of six washcloths, were sold at far greater numbers than electronics and other traditional gifts. This year the retailer sold 2 million televisions, 1.9 million dolls, 1.4 million tablets and 300,000 bicycles.

 

This is what people did while skipping out on family time over the Thanksgiving weekend. But hey, at least when you go to visit the family next time you will most likely have fresh towels in the guest bathroom. Cheap towels, but still, fresh towels.
