....nope not til Thanksgiving....but BLACK FRIDAY!!!!!!!

that's right....I LOVE LOVE LOVE Black Friday shopping!!!!

I am one of those crazy women that wake up at 3am on Friday and rush out the door to be at the store at 4am. Yes, I am sure are sitting back thinking "what in the world is worth getting up that early in the morning for?" Well, let me tell ya. I love to get bargains! Last year I racked up on DVD's for $2-$3 each for Kyle. Marked down from $19.99. Then I got 3 PS2 games for $19.99 each. Marked down from $39.99!!!!


Next came the Guitar Hero World Tour for $99.00.


Not to mention all the great deals I got on clothes and the free Belk gift card to the 250 people in the door....which of course I was!!!

I am not sure were I get this fettish from. My Mom was never a Black Friday shopper nor my Granny but, I will not miss it! To me, it is a really fun day...early and long...but fun. Last year we even vallet parked at the mall on Black Friday. And let me tell you, it is the way to go!!!! It was the best $10 we spent ALL day and I will doing it again this year. They park your car and when you get done shopping you just wait at the curb with all your packages and they go get it the car for you and pull it right up to the curb...AWESOME!!!!!

This year, I have several items on my "Mission List" some things for Kyle, well most for Kyle..some for Chris and one for Mom. I just love getting more for my money and seeing how far I can strech my budget....yes, I do have a budget...DUH!?!

So yes, bright and early on Thanksgiving morning you will not find me bent over a hot stove slaving away with Tom turkey....instead, I will be scanning the Black Friday ads drinking my coffee and planning my shopping.....so who's with me???????

I don't think I have ever ventured out on black friday, but this time I am going to brave it and try to get some good home decor stuff for our bedroom walls.

Cathy said...

I'll have to see the ads first before I decide if I'm going.

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

I am! I am! I am!!!!!!

Kristin said...

I'm sending the hubs out to score a tv. Our bedroom set is going and I gotta have tv in the bedroom. So sad. Ah ha

Would you believe I've never been out shopping on Black Friday? Ever!

I have always wanted to, but never had the guts to get up THAT early and BRAVE it. My mom and sister went without me one year when I couldn't go....and they never did it again,so neither did I. So sad.

Trish, you'd be so proud!! I'm actually "thinking about" going out and braving Black Friday! The kids are BEGGING so, I just might do it! =0)

Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, too!!!

I admire your tenactity, but there is no way I would ever go to a Black Friday sale.

Misty said...

I love Black Friday too! I am super organized about it. I pour over the ads and make a list of what I want and which stores have the best "perks" and then create a map according to store openings and priority buys. This year, Old Navy was the ultimate winner for us... :)
