What a day!
Even though Black Friday started at some stores as early as 10 PM on Thanksgiving, Matt and I decided to go out at 6 AM this morning. And boy am I glad we waited. We got everything we wanted with the exception of a fire pit for $30 from Target (and if I don't find this particular one tomorrow, we might pay $40 for the one at Lowe's) and Cars 2 on Blu-ray for $9.88 from Sam's Club.
We will be looking tomorrow for both of these items while out shopping.
We went to:
Ruby Tuesdays (Lunch)
Met a guy selling DVDs from online site
And now I am pooped!
As you can see, we went to TONS of stores!
(I'll post pictures later.)
Between the 2 of us we spent around $600 with all our shopping! We never spend that much! Never!
In our defense, $150 bought a grill, $70 bought 2 pairs of shoes, $70 bought tools, and so on and so on. We did buy a bunch of stuff for each other for Christmas while still managing to buy a few Christmas gifts for other people. I am hoping to almost be done after this weekend. Fingers crossed! Even though I had fun I am still sick of shopping amongst the crowds.
I do have to show you mine and my mom's Walgreens shopping.
I took one picture of all the stuff we bought at 3 stores... we both checked out 7 times!
