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.
