Black Friday Deals

Yes, I am one of those crazy people that race out to the stores super early in the morning to get the good deals on Black Friday.   And boy was it worth it! 

We woke up at 2:30 on Friday morning to go get in line.  Dustin’s brother came with us so we were able to hit twice as many stores.  I went to Wal-Mart (Yay for waiting indoors instead of out in the rain and cold!) while Dustin and his brother went to Circuit City.  I probably should have known better than to send those two shopping alone because Dustin came home with a receipt for a 42” plasma TV.  It was so big they couldn’t fit it in the car!  When he told me that he had bought it, I thought he was joking.  I guess they had such a great place in line, by the time they came around with the vouchers, there was still tons left.  So he bought it, figuring that he could always return it if I said no.  Well, I said no.  So we returned it and probably made someone day. 

We also we to Target and got lots of new bedding stuff, movies and games.  A lot of this stuff we took back later that day just because we got duplicates… or we already had it… or we only needed one.  I guess when you get caught up in all the rush of things you just buy stuff because it is such a good deal and then return it all later. 


While Dustin and his brother were at Target, I headed over to Joann's!  They had flannel on sale for $1.47 a yard!   How can you beat that?  You can’t!  And for a flannel addict like me, you can’t pass this type of a deal up.  Just think of all the great blankets I’m going to make.  I stocked up on flannel and most likely won’t have to buy any for years! 

Nothing makes you smile like a screaming deal!  In the end, it was all worth it.

Hey, as long as it was worth it. I did hit JoAnn's on Saturday and it was still pretty crazy. Ginormous lines.

I was too afraid to brave the crowds. You have to give hubby credit for trying with the tv.

Hee Hee! I used to love to get up and go to those sales. Now I just look for great deals online. If it can't come to my door . . . I'm afraid I'm not much of a shopper anymore.
