Black Friday shopping, Anyone?

(photo found at

The Hubs and I decided to take a gander through the Black Friday ads yesterday.
We found too many deals to not take advantage of.
There was a catch.
If I wanted to get in on the good deals I had to go while the Hubs slept.
Let the games begin.
My mother-in-law and I left the house last night at 11:30pm.
Yes, 11:30pm.
She wanted to go to the St. Augustine Outlets....she's into that kinda thing.
I'd rather wait for a sale near home.
I got a few things but, nothing I couldn't have gotten closer to home.
I digress.
We left the outlets at 4:15am...
One hour off schedule due to a line that was CraZy long at Gymboree. (there were good deals to be had there, I have to admit)
Moving on.
We got to Target at 4:54.
Just in time to get a freebie bag and take off running (yes, I ran) towards the Doorbusters.
I got everything that the Hubs and I had circled in the flyer.
Then it was off to WalMart.
Again, I was able to snag all the Doorbusters deals that we had circled.
My Christmas shopping is almost complete.
I hope now that my boys will give me a few more ideas for little things.
I need to get stocking stuffers.
Poor McKinley....I need to pick her up one or two things.
That's it.

Am I the only one who can't wait for Christmas to be over.
I'm over it.
Maybe one year we'll say 'no gifts' and only have a Birthday Party for Jesus.
That's what it's all about anyway!

Wow- you rocked the black friday. I got to Target at 6am- saw the 3 hour wait in lines! and turned around and walked right back out. Waited for the bank to open- by staniding in line for a couple of things at Target. Deposited my money and came home and shopped online. Then we set up our tree and my 12yo and I went back to Target. it was empty. :) I got some decorations and she did some of her shopping- a fun day but nothing to brag about.

I was able to get what I needed for the family I have to mail to, but my own kids and family's gifts will have to wait until the weekend before Christmas when we get our "bonus" money. *sigh*..I so wanted to get it all done this weekend!

WOW! You are a braver woman than I am. I don't think I could survive that much shopping in a 24 hour period - with out sleep?! Kudos to you though -- that's a lot of good deals!
