Re: POLL: Black Friday

  • We got up at 3am, went to Kohl's, got there 10 min before they opened.  Shopped there, then went to Old Navy, then went to Target (chaos!), and then I made a stop at Lowe's.  We were back home and settled by 8am.

    Spent about $500 but got some great deals, and our Christmas shopping is now done for each other!  Next, some leftover family gifts and we're good to go.

  • i love myself a bargain, but i stayed home and slept versus shopping for a number of reasons:

    a) i had to work at 8:30 this morning

    b) i can't stand crowds and aggressive shoppers

    c) i have no idea what to buy anyone yet, and crowded malls aren't the best place for browsing.

  • I just woke up, and it feels awesome. I don't feel like I missed out on any deals since there will be similar deals all the way through Christmas.  I may venture out to Walmart later to pick up some Christmas lights, but that's about it. 

    Glad you were so productive, dobsy. Now go make me some waffles! :)

  • I had set my alarm for 3 this morning but had been up sick with what I think was food poisoning last night until 11. When the alarm went off, I still had a headache so went back to sleep. I woke up again at 5 on my own, kept having visions of Black Friday shopping and how much I enjoy it, and eventually went out to Target at 6 am. Target was crazy and seemed to be where everyone was. I spent $175 there, but got a ton of stuff.

    Oh, and I totally bought a flatscreen TV on amazon.

  • DH and I intended to get up at 5 am and go but my mom and sister called at 4:30 on their way out and woke us up so we got out the door a little earlier by at about 5.  Went to Sears and got the hubs a giant toolchest he wanted, he bought me my dSLR camera from hhgregg that I've been coveting for months (I finally sold him on it by telling him how great it will be when we have kids - even though that's still at least a year away - haha), went to Macys, Kohls, and a few others before dropping DH off at the football game and finishing up at Target and Michaels.  Got home about an hour ago and now I'm going to finish up the cleanup from last night's Thanksgiving dinner and we'll start decorating for xmas when DH gets home.  I love BF - its such a fun day.
  • I went to Target at 5:00 a.m. The only "family" gifts I'm doing this year are for my cousins (all under 14) and I was able to get each of them a gift for $10, which was perfect because we're on a super budget this year.

    The gifts for our moms/grandparents/aunts & uncles will all be photos from the wedding (albums for moms, calendars for grandparents, framed prints for aunts & uncles) so those weren't Black Friday purchases. I'm doing homemade gifts for most of my friends, or doing online purchases.

    The only thing left to do is shop for my little brothers and my DH -- might do that today, might do it later. I am planning on going to see *New Moon* again in a bit :)

  • I went at 5 am with my FIL and went to a few stores.  There was like 3 people in front of me at most times.  We came home and then I went back to some other stores. The only store I waited in line was for Gymboree
  • We went to Wal-Mart right at 5 just to witness the craziness. We did buy some ornaments and some gifts for our White Elephant party.

    We bought our big thing last night before 12 from radioshack.com. It was there BF deal on the Garmin 255W, and it was the only thing we really wanted this year. I found a free shipping code so it was just easier to order it than fight for it this morning.

  • We had a regular day off, no shopping for us. We walked around downtown Charleston and went to lunch. It was perfect! Standing in line for 2 hours is not worth saving $50 to me.
  • We got to target about ten minutes after it opened and it was madness. So great. Got some good stuff. We went there, shoe carnival, old navy, local mall (sears, jc penney, disney, other random stores), local rich people mall (apple store, godiva, sephora, sony, victorias secret), borders, bed bath and beyond, walmart, and kohls.

     I took a quick iphone video as I stumbled around target at 5 AM.
