My sister and I are waking up at 2am to go shopping. So excited for my $15 jeans from Old Navy! :D

2:00 am is just an unholy hour for shopping. LOL. But I hope you have a lot of fun and get the deals you most want! :)

Hubs and I will be hitting the stores at the crack of about 10:00 am - we'll take the leftovers. ;)

I'm sooooo sad I'm not home for the holidays. I couldn't care less about Thanksgiving but Black Friday, now there's a real holiday.

I got to Kohl's at 2:15, they opened at 3. I was surprised to be in, out, and home by 3:30 with everything I went for.

I am not doing black Friday shopping this year; however, last year I got in line at best buy at 5:30 P.M. on Thanksgiving. We got our TVs that year. My sister went this year, though. My sister and brother-in-law stayed outside of Best Buy since about 7 PM yesterday. They got their ticket for a laptop and tablet (it is like an ipad?). If you want electronics, you have to get their really early. ;) I hope everyone that went was safe!

I am glad I didn't go. I am not feeling too well.

I never shop on Black Friday and today won't be any different.

I have never done Black Friday, but we did this year, and it was a BLAST!!!! For me, it was all about the experience, not just all the goodies we got.

My fiance was in line for Best Buy ay 3am while I went to Old Navy. I got a nice jacket and sweater. At Best Buy we got a WiFi built in Blu Ray player and a nice camcorder. Then we went to Bed Bath and Beyond and got a Sodastream (homemade soda maker), toasting flutes for our wedding, and...wait for it...a Shake Weight, hahahahaha.

Best Buy was like a theme park. Wait in line for two hours for five minutes of thrilling high speed shopping.

Definitely a new family holiday tradition, it was fantastic, lol.

What exactly is this Black Friday? I'm from England, and we don't have it, still curious though :)

Black Friday is the shopping day after Thanksgiving in prep for Christmas. It is named black Friday because it is the day that stores historically went from being in the red to going black (ie start making a profit). I'm not sure if that is still true but that is where it comes from.

I got home by 6 and went back to bed haha! Many of our stores opened at midnight so some people were done by the time I got there at 3!

My best friend and I were out shopping from 10pm until 6 am the next day. Crazy good deals, but I'm too old (29, lol) to do an all nighter next year.
On the plus side, I now fit into size 10 jeans! w00t!

I'd rather sleep in and pay $50 for a pair of Old Navy jeans. :lol: I guess that means I am old!

I just lost 20 lbs, and plan on going down 4 more dress sizes.
So I am going to the local thrift stores today looking for clothes in the 4 sizes.


Most have 50% to 75% off all day.
Some of the stores have 5 items of clothes for $5.
I bought 10 pair of slacks and jeans this morning, (some new with tags for $1 each) ... came home for lunch, now I am going out to another couple stores.

Most people are out at the malls. The thrift stores are really empty today.

Ended up in kittery Maine outlets and bought a $400 coach bag for $100. That was my contribution to black Friday. Happy Chanukah to me from my boys :-)
