Black Friday

Before last year, I thought that the people who went to black Friday were idiots! Then last year, I friend woke me up at 5:30am to meet her at Target. It was a rush - the people, the bargains, OMG!

This year, we took it to the extreme! Thankfully, the stores near my house weren't as crazy as others around the country.

12am - Toys R Us - we parked at 12am, were in the store by 12:10am. The line to check out was way longer but snaked through the aisles so we could browse while in line. We even got some Zhu Zhu hamsters.
3am - Old Navy - we stood in line for 30 minutes, got in at 3am and were out at 3:30, with some great bargains.
5am - Target - Some us got in line at 3:45am while the rest of us went to the Disney Store (which was empty). We got nothing at Disney. Target had amazing sales on TVs but I just got some kids toys.
6am - Macys - Straight up to housewares and got a couple of great deals. My friend got a queen down comforter and 2 pillows for $40 (normally $120).
7:30am - Drove past Walmart. Even though they had been open since 5am, the line was still down the block and there were armed cops there to make sure it was peaceful. We decided nothing was worth that!

So, I didn't make it to Walmart or Staples. I was exhausted and asleep by 8:30am! Overall, a successful Black Friday!

Wow, you are hardcore! I have never shopped on Black Friday except for Fifth Avenue in New York City and that was Awesome, I would do that again in a heartbeat but then again I love to shop on Fifth Avenue anytime so I guess that doesn't really count (LOL).
Glad to hear it was worth it and you got some great deals, that is what it is all about!!!

I have to say, I don't think I ever went shopping on Black Friday. For the past 7 years, I've been working at TGI Fridays, waiting on all the lunatics who DO shop on BF!!
