Black Friday

Who is going shopping today (went shopping)? It’s 5:30 am and I’m already back from Wal-Mart….. wow… it was a MADHOUSE!!!!! I left just before 5 am because I thought they opened at 5, but they must have opened earlier than that because the store was PACKED!!! I fought my way to the back of the store and got the girls each a Nintendo DS game (last copy of both titles!) and then picked up a pair of jeans for myself. Surprisingly, the lines at the registers weren’t that bad (probably because everyone was waiting in line to get a TV, etc. LOL). There was only one person in front of me at the check-out, so I was in and out of the store in less than 30 minutes.

If anyone is shopping at Wal-Mart, I strongly suggest that you take a sales ad with you if you have one!! NONE of the items I bought came up with the sales price, and the sale prices weren’t marked on the shelves/racks either. Thankfully the person behind me brought his ad and the cashier was able to override the prices.  Saved almost $40!!

I’m about to wake Melissa and we’re going to brave the crowds together… just for fun, and without a shopping list. Black Friday really isn’t so bad when you don’t have to stand in line to get a certain item 😉
