We spent the day shopping. And by “we”, I mean me, my mother-in-law and sister-in-law.
I know there are a lot people who don’t believe in Black Friday shopping, but I get a thrill out of the planning, saving and purchasing almost a month before Christmas. Just getting it all done.
I’ll go into more detail this weekend (without giving away all of the gifts I’ve purchased.) Just know that I woke up at 3 to leave the house by 4 and drive an hour to Wilmington to shop. I’ve saved at least $200 today, and I have most of my Christmas gifts purchased. All was good until my husband and I took an impromptu trip into small town and I got into an argument with one of the sales people. It wasn’t pretty, might have been tense for them, and I still want to call a manager – but I’ll sleep on it for now and see how I feel in the morning.
(Oh, and I ordered an iGo charger this evening and got 30% off with the promo code FRIDAY30 – plus free shipping. I tested this out during the Type-A Mom blog conference in September and LOVED it. If you travel and often have dead batteries, I highly recommend one.)
Blog ya tomorrow!
