We survived yet another "Black Friday"! I woke up at 2:20 am....on my own ('cause Brett has a sore throat and he would not be still in his sleep!)-but then we all got up at 3:00 am....we were at Walmart (after a run to Dunkin' Doughnuts!) by 3:45 am! We all took our places....just as we had decided to in our game plan......Allie was in "electronics" (the most dangerous place in all of walmart! Seriously!)-Brett and Levi were stationed in "toys" and I was put on "kid's clothes" duty! We came...we saw and we conquered! After Walmart, we went to the mall....Bath and Body works, Jc Penny's, Macy's, Claire's,......., then we were off to Circuit City and"Michael's". After that, we went to Sam's club, Walgreen's and Beall's. We were home by 9:30 am-with 98% of ALL of our Christmas shopping done! Yippee!! We got lots of GREAT deals and had loads of fun!! This year....I was really tired! And Brett and Levi and their "fart machine" (yes...that is right!) were a bit too much for me to handle at times!! Oh well....my Mom even accused me over being...."grouchy", when she called me (while I was standing in a line....listening to Levi and Brett "farting"!). Anyhoo-we did have a lot of fun...and made memories that will last a lifetime! Only 364 days to go!!! (I just love that song by "Bradly"-but instead of singing it on Christmas...I sing it on Black Friday!)
These pics are of my "coupon closet"-where I store all the stuff I get with my coupons. Oh! BTW....yesterday was insane! I went to CVS with $41.00 in reward bucks.....came back with $52.00 in reward bucks (spent .72 cents) and got 2 things of lip gloss, shampoo and conditioner, make up,2 packs of razors, 2 sets of ipod headphones, 2 packs of gum (so they did not OWE ME $!), face wash wipes, 2 tubes of toothpaste and a bottle of lotion! It is really easy to do-you just have to take the time to read the ads! Even if I did not have coupons-I could have at least walked out with the same amount of reward bucks as I came in with! I just make money on the deal since I have the coupons.
