I promised myself this year that I wouldn't fall into the black Friday trap, but it's very hard to ignore the literally hundreds of e-mails constantly throwing their wonderful sales into my face. You know I can't resist a sale.
We went to our local Wal-Mart at 9:30 and I was able to get the Shark steam mop that I've been wanting. It was pretty crazy, but we were able to get it and check out in six minutes flat. We were home by 10:12! Luckily, I live next to a very nice Wal-Mart (like, I have the "crappy" car in the parking lot, kind) which is the only reason I attempted this. I would have been trampled alive if I had tried this at any other Wal-Mart.
Anthropologie had 50% off sale prices, which never, ever happens. This is about the only time that I have ever considered anything at Anthropologie a steal. I was able to pick up a few goodies for very, very reasonable prices.
Then I moseyed over to J. crew for 25% off and picked up some more shirts for work. And I wasn't completely selfish, I picked up my last few Christmas gifts today as well. Sigh, I hate you and love you black Friday.
Charlie and I are heading to Six Flags (again) this evening. It's educator day and I can get us in for super cheap. I'm hoping that everyone will be too tired from shopping to come out today and we will be able to ride the heck out of everything. Last time we went we had to wait almost an hour at every ride. Hello, roller coasters!
