- Wedding: August 2013 - Brookfield Zoo
So, what did you get!? Did you go to the stores and line up, or did you sit in your home and browse online?
Personally, I did (and am doing) the latter. I talked myself out of a lot, but I broke down and pressed the Amazon buy button for Seasons 2-7 plus the anime series of Supernatural on blu-ray! My friend got me season 1 at Walmart yesterday which is probably the only reason I threw away all reason and bought the rest (they are all on Netflix!!).
What was/is your haul so far??

Went to Walmart, JcPenny and Michael’s. Got a 700 thread count sheet set from Walmart, everything else was a bust there. At JcPenny, got 3 of the Sealy pillows for $7 a piece, the 5qt slow-cooker for $8, a 6 piece countertop convection over for $30 even though it was mismarked for $45 and a couple shirts. At Michael’s I got the 2 trees that you can put at the front entrance for $30.
I am just really made at Walmart though. All the things I got was placed in the middle of the aisle as if it was a Black Friday deal but when I got to the register it wasn’t. So glad I was paying to how much things were ringing up for.

I never go out, but I was browsing online. I’m so mad at myself. My dream camera, one I almost got used off craiglist for $400 was on sale at Best Buy for $449…. And stupid me thought I was going to want anything and took all my money off my card so I could make myself save it.

@roweboat: Me too…I worked 10PM-5AM, and now I just woke up and am getting ready to head back in for part 2 of the insanity. I bought a few movies though, lol.

Nothing! I no longer buy at “big box” stores like Walmart or Best Buy – all the gifts I will buy will support the local economy. I can pick up crafts, gift cards an gift certificiates anytime so I did some more cooking today and enjoying the company of friends gracious enough to stop by!

@Wonderstruck: I worked midnight til 8am, and I go back tonight as well. Our store was just a wreck instantly, lol. My brain is all jacked up from the weird hours, I’ve barely slept.

I’m at work so I did a little online shopping while here. Nothing that really caught my eye. My mom needs a coffee maker so I got her one off JC Penny. The FI has been looking for some 3/4 lenght shirts so I got him two for 25%. Nothing spectacular.

I ordered a few things from Kolhs last night and then just dropped in today to see if they had something that was sold out online and a gallery frame set. Nothing major.

I hit Kohls on the way to work this morning. I was in and out in half an hour. All I got was a nighty and slippers for my daughters shower tomorrow.
Normally I boycott BF but I really needed the gift

I have been scouring for the “perfect” engagement shoot outfits…and I have a new job starting Monday….so I may or may not have spent $500.00 while shopping online at Express, The Loft and The Limited.

I bought some pants and panties on ae.com last night, since they were having 40% off and free shipping. I’d been eyeing those pants anyway.
We also went out and got groceries and then stopped by the mall and ended up buying my wedding ring, since it’s on sale. It took forever though, since the guy we spoke with was dumb and told us the wrong thing, so when we asked about the size of it (we assumed that we’d be ordering it, since FI ordered my e-ring, since, you know, I’m about 3 sizes smaller than the stock rings), she was SO confused. I told her that I assumed we’d be ordering it, since I need a 4.5 and that ring a 6.75, and she was like, “…Well you have to take this one home to get the sale price…?” Uh, no, no we don’t. “Well, they can resize this one…” NO, that’s an awful idea, since even resizing my e-ring ONE size screwed up some of the detail. “Well…they’ll see if they can resize this, and if not, they’ll just order it in that size.” Sigh. I actually wanted to order it in January so that my e-ring and band could be on the same inspection schedule, but I’m worried they won’t run a better price then. :

So far, I’m shopping online only. Carter’s has 50% off, even on their website, and still honored my coupon–so I got stuff for my niece, our little guy, and for a few baby showers I know that will be coming up.
I think Gap Maternity online is 60% off tomorrow, so I’ll be looking at that as well.
