I haven’t gone out but my mother did- she bought a cricut.

Does anybody know if there are any stores that have deals on 120gb xbox harddrives?

I am NOT going anywhere. My sister went to the Toys R Us sale last night at Midnight and said the line was weaving through the parking lot and down the street just to get in. I’m the type of girl that gets anxiety and ditches a shopping cart if there are 5 people in line ahead of me…so….I will not be braving these stores. They could be giving the stuff away for free and I still wouldn’t do it.

I haven’t seen anything on the xbox systems that was fabulous, we’ve been watching them as well.

I am so not a people person.  Like, I like people and all, but I HATE crowds, so I don’t care how cheap I can get an Xbox today, I refuse to do it.  Although, I am going to payless shoes for some brown tights…. but not because of the deals, but because I need brown tights to wear with my dress for my shower tomorrow, lol.

No Black Friday for me (I love shopping in the States but have never gone for Black Friday), but my mom is going so I gave her a list and am hopeful that she can get some things before they are sold out. There’s a Bissell steam mop on sale for $50 (half price) that I am really excited about! I think I might actually be willing to mop if I have one ๐Ÿ˜‰

I started working at 6am today and I would never brave all the potential crazies out there–no offense to anyone here that does shop on Black Friday but I’ve heard stories before (fights over Tickle Me Elmo, the person crushed to death at Walmart last year). I think I would be really overwhelmed. Most places usually continue to lower prices all the way until the last minute so I just wait usually or buy online to avoid crowds. I’ve always kind of wanted to try Black Friday shopping though but I’m not that brave yet ๐Ÿ™‚

Nope – no money ๐Ÿ™

 Plus, I’m kind of scared of the crazy people that tend to come out of the woodwork on black friday. Seriously, what other day of the year do you hear of someone getting trampled to death in Wal-Mart? 

Freaking scary.

Ahhhh, I just posted about this (didn’t see this post)

I went to Target, Kmart and Walgreens and saved over $300.  I think my mom saved about $200.  Well worth it and not so bad.  Just took a little longer than years previous.  (45 minutes in Target, 1 hour in Kmart)

Black Friday is the day that traditionally marks when a retail store goes out of the “red” and into the “black” in profit for the year.
