black friday

I was one of those crazy people who woke up at 2:30am on black Friday to go out and fight the crowds for the best deals. I always have a good time and usually have a buddy to shop with which always helps. This year I met up with my friend Kristin at a few stores to score the deals. She is a super duper black Friday shopper so she was a good buddy to have.

Here are my deals (well, most of them):

I avoided the crowds at Wal-Mart and bought these items online at 2:30am. My friend Kristin did however manage to pick up a Havoc Heli helicopter set for me at Wal-mart for $19. I couldn't find a picture of it online though.

This table retails for $39 but I paid $19

I bought my son 3 sets of these track suits that were $10 originally but I paid $3. The boots cost $19 regularly but I paid $7

I bough the items in the bag from Menards and Kohl's. For those of you who don't know, Menards is like a Home Depot but with household items too. I got the fleece blankets for $1.87, the pack of men's socks for $2.40, the Snuggie's for $2.99, the men's lounge pants for $4, tootsie roll box of candy for 67 cents, and the baby teethers for $2.50 and $4.50.

I got wood laminate floors at Menards too. They were 67 cents a sq. ft. which is a fantastic price for their quality. We are redoing my craft room and these babies will be going in there.

My favorite black Friday deal was this steam mop I got at Target. Regularly $100 but I paid $50. I have already used it and LOVE it. Never mind my dog's ear in this photo.

I got these bath towels at Kohl's. They were regularly $7.99/each but I paid $2.49/each for them. They will be going in the kid's bathroom.

I got the stainless steel crockpot and candles at Menards as well. The crockpot was a measly $4.99, and I bought 3 candles (here is the Christmas tree scent) and they cost me $1.88 each. The shade on the candle is from Bath and Body Works and that was already mine.

I stopped in to my local True Value store to use their 50% off coupon on some paint for my craft room. How ironic that the paint color name is Soft Twilight (team Edward here).

I got these pants in a navy blue color for $10 at Old Navy. Re. $19.50

Old Navy-I got my husband 2 tees. This one and a grey colored one for $5 each. Reg. $15 each

Old Navy- I got myself some new fleece gloves for $2.50. I wanted the matching scarf but they were sold out. Reg. $5.00

My son scored big at Old Navy. I got him 3 pairs of fleece pants for $5.00 each. Two of them were supposed to be $10 but a very kind but not too bright employee told me they were $5 and so they honored that price. They were reg. $16.50.

Last but certainly not least, I got my son 2 of these fleece pull overs. One in grey and one in blue. They look great on him and cost $5 each. Re. $14.50

So there you have it....all my deals. It was stressful and exhausting but I have a whole year to rest and be ready for next black Friday!

Great deals! B and I did the black friday thing to and ended up with a great laptop & printer and, of course, gifts for other people... I would blog about it all but remembering the early morning online ordering and the crazy wal-mart experiences might just make me sick all over again! Maybe another day...
