My Black Friday Experience!

I have to say that my Black Friday shopping was a success. I was able to get all the items on my list, as well as a bunch of items that weren't on my list. (Yes, I am a Black Friday impulse shopper!) Luckily, several of the impulse items are perfect gifts for some of the people on my list...and some are perfect for me. Ha!

Here's a brief rundown of my experience:

12:30 a.m. - Took a nap on the couch. Held my phone so that I would not miss the alarm.

3:00 - Woke up, took shower, and threw on clothes.

3:40 - Left for Walmart. Ate two organic waffles and drank some Dr. Pepper on the way.

4:05 - Got to Walmart. Saw that people already had items in their carts, so I started "grabbing" t00.

4:05 - 7:30 - Wandered around Walmart looking for my items, waited in a wrong line for an hour, tried to avoid being filmed by the local station, almost got jumped for moving a woman's cart 1/4 inch for someone else because it was blocking the aisle...

7:30 - 7:45 - Wandered around the parking lot IN THE POURING RAIN looking for my car because I totally forgot where I parked. Finally went inside and called a wonderful friend who left Target to come help me find my car. Her wonderful daughter and her bff's wonderful daughter (who is also my wonderful student) helped too.

8:00 - 12:20 p.m. - Visited Target, Best Buy, Children's Place, Walgreens, and NY & Company.

12:30 - Ate a whole pizza by myself then crashed.

2:00 - 7:00 - Slept!

10:30 - 2:30 a.m. - Shopped online at Target, Children's Place,, Best Deal Magazines, and Shoebuy. (Got double cashback from ebates plus great deals!)

(Btw, I shopped at CVS and on Thanksgiving Day.)

I'm totally exhausted, but I am already looking forward to next year's Black Friday deals!

I hope you had a successful Black Friday experience! I'd love to hear about it!

Wow!...No wonder you were exhausted. I kept my shopping short and sweet...went to Walgreens, Kmart, and Ingles and went right back home :)
