Black Friday Shopping

Did anyone else brave the crowds?

I tried to get some sleep while waiting for the sales to start, but it wasn't happening. There was one major thing I needed to get a deal on! If I'd fallen asleep, it would have passed me by. I went out to Walmart around 2:30 because they were open even though the sale didn't start until 5 AM. By 3AM, the item I wanted was gone, and YES, I got one! It was an incredibly good deal on a laptop computer for a gift, and it cost me about 5 hours of time. But, for my daughter, I would do it again. Oh, and I saved about $190 over what I would have gotten. There's a reason to stand in line all night! Will I do it again? Maybe. I guess it depends on the item and the savings. Thankfully, there was no fighting or conflict like what I saw that happened in California or in New York last year. Everyone was friendly, and helpful, both the employees and the other customers. I am glad it's over for this year, though! How was your Black Friday experience?

Nope you won't catch me in those crazy sales. Most of the shopping is done and what isn't will wait for a quieter day. ~ Calico Contemplations

I did go out shopping for a few deals but I was not brave enough to go very early. A friend and I went a little before 8am. While it was a little disappointing that a couple things were gone already it was worth it to me to avoid the chaos of going bright and early. Glad to hear you had success in your black Friday shopping!!

I rarely go out so Black Friday is way out of my thoughts and/or plans. I'm glad you got out though and got what you wanted. =)
