No Black Friday Shopping for Me this Year

For the past 2 years I have been one of the crazy people (I mean that in the best way) that gets up early or stays up late and hits up Walmart for the deals to be had. The first year we got up and went around 2am and got in line for TVs. Last year we went before midnight and got in line for various outdoor play toys. We snatch up some other great deals while we are there.

This year I didn't do Black Friday because we were at home and I didn't have my mom and sister to go with. It is always more fun (and safer) to go with someone. I was a little bummed but quickly got over it when I was in my PJs and in bed for the night by 11pm and slept until 9am. Thanks kids!

I still hope to grab some good deals over the next few weeks (probably will be shopping on Cyber Monday). It is always nice to stretch those dollars as far as you can and bless your children. My husband and I make a budget and try our very best to stick to it. We generally pick one big item and then do smaller things as well.

I would love to hear from those who went Black Friday shopping and your experiences and what deals you got.

  1. Oh Ash - you missed a great year to Black Friday shop! For Jackson I got a play kitchen for 69.99 (usually $130ish), toy tool set for $10 (usually $30), Vtech laptop for $10 (usually $30), an Elmo dvd for $1.96 (usually $10ish), an Elmo memory game for $3.88 (not sure of original price), and a hat and gloves set for $3 (again not sure of original price).

    For Bryan and myself I got an immersion blender for $14 (originally $20), a dirt devil hard surface vacuum that turns into a dust buster for $8 (usually at least $24), a 30 pc rubbermaid set for $6.88 (usually $40), a Perry Ellis belt for Bryan for $18 (usually $42), and a ton of clothes for us from Target and Old Navy for CHEAP!

    I may not have made it out until 5:30 am (and started at 7:30 pm the night before) but I made out like a bandit!!
