Okay, how many people were out shopping the deals today and bought things for themselves?

I did. I was at Walmart at 5am and got bruises to prove it. I wanted the portable DVD player for myself. I'm going to put it on my treadmill! lol

I wanted to buy Season 2 & 3 of Nip/Tuck but the stores were out. I came home and ordered it online from Amazon. I had a $10 gift code (for taking a survey) and with free shipping it was only a few dollars more than the stores had.

I'm going to wrap my goodies and put them under the tree. This way I know for sure I'll be getting something great this year from Santa. I can only get so excited about new slippers and robes. <!--misspeak-->

Most of the others things I plan to buy for the family weren't on special yet. I'm going to wait and see what other sales come up.

I didn't buy anything for myself today, but that's only because my hubby was with me. I'll shop for me later. ;)

I admit I did

After I had rounded up the bargains I needed for others, I took the time to shop for myself (after all, I was out already, right?:D). I got two long sleeved tee shirts in Target, some sweaters, one pair of pants and a skirt. Things were 50% off at Kohls, and I had an additional 15% coupon, so they were good deals. It's finally getting cold here, so I need those new, warmer clothes.:s)

home today

I never left the house today. Turkey coma... LOL. I was actually setting up my Christmas decor. :D My gifts are all bought and wrapped already. I was an early bird this year. :p


Senior Member

...I did!!! I bought (for my DH to give me for Christmas:rolleyes:) a digital picture frame. I also bought tons of Wallflower refills from B & B Works, but wait...I can say that is for others that come and visit me. They get the pleasure of my house smelling good, right?!LOL At B & B Works, I also bought lotions.


Senior Member

The only thing I bought were Wallflower refills for me, but I bought them online to avoid the crowds! B&B offered 6.00 shipping, the nearest store to me is 18miles away.. I figured it was worth 6.00 to not have to drive up there and and back and fight the crowds! And I still get the free perfume gift since I ordered $30.00 worth.. :D

So Sad

I could NOT find a parking place at the mall. I drove around and around and around waiting for someone to leave--but there were too many others with the same idea. I gave up and left! I had B a B on my list--they usually have the lotions and soaps on sale. :(

The only places I went were to Lowes and WAlMart!

But, I already have purchased a new pair of shoes for myself and they are wrapped. DH doesn't realize that the tag says to Me from HIM!LOL (Wonder if he'll ever catch on????)

Bath and Body online

Anything you planned to get at B&B you can order from their website for the same sale price. Shipping was 5.95 when I ordered last night (today's prices were online yesterday :D), and is supposed to be that all weekend. It's cheaper than driving around the mall and there were no crowds.. :rolleyes:

There's even a code for the free colognes and gift card w/30.00 purchase.

I did!

What's the point of killing myself to get bargains for others if I don't reward myself? I bought a pair of jeans---needed them desperately since none from last year fit(smaller size this year!!!), sweater, fleece and earrings. I think I spent about $40 for all that, so I feel good about my rewards.

I feel like I got some real good bargains and I didn't go out until 8am. Free remote from Staples, $50 digital frame from Walmart and the best deal was $200 gold hoop earrings for $56!!! Of course I have nothing for DH, DS, and DD since they have not given me any ideas!!! I hope they like an empty under the tree!


Senior Member

I bought a jacket for myself at Kohls. It was $149 less 50% less 15% coupon and then a $10 reward coupon. How could I not???? I mean really!!! LOL


Senior Member

My mom and I waited until later in the afternoon and we visited Home Depot, Lowes, Kmart and Walmart. At Kmart I bought myself two turtle neck sweaters...they ended up only costing 8.49 a piece.. and a very soft, and warm red vest that was 30% off. I felt guilty because I didn't get my son any Santa gifts...we went to WalMart and I made up for that!:D

Loved the shopping

I took my 11 year old grandaughter out clothes shopping the day before Thanksgiving. She is at the age that she has developed her her fashion taste. We had a great time, and now I know that clothes will fit plus she loved everything she picked out. The week before they had a special night set aside for the teachers in our county at ToysRUs and I was able to get most of the toys I wanted for my granddaughters. This morning I went to Walmart and bought 3 toys that were on sale that we on their list. Now all I have to do is to buy clothes for the six year old and i will be done. This is the first year that I have shopped early and this is a godd feeling. Now the wraping marathon will have to beging soon. I hate that part. For the grand kids I buy 2 different rolls for them and wrap their presents. That way I don't need tags for they know which wrapping is theirs. Make it a lot easier.

I did not shop AT ALL today. Drove home from my sister-in-law's this morning and then put up Christmas lights on the house. I plan on putting up the tree tomorrow. 'Tis the season...........<!--thanksgiving1-->

I don't think I have *ever* gone shopping on black Friday. I have a huge aversion to crowds ;) We only have Macy's and Walmart (and a Kmart) with specials anyway- no other stores, really, and certainly no malls. I avoid Walmart at all costs- it is super crowded at any time ;)

I wouldn't mind sending out a proxy shopper some time! I went to Kmart last week and it really stressed me out-- all those Christmas decorations up before Thanksgiving and all that Christmas music- I was feeling stressed that I was not ready for Christmas, and it's only November! ;)

I Went & Loved It!!!!

I was at Target @ 5:55 AM (the store opened at 6) I was in line with 250 + other people but I didn't mind. I got some playdoh for $5.00,a game for 3.99, among some other things.
I would have done more shopping but had some other things come up that needed to be taken care of. I love shopping and really don't mind the crowds.

Happy Shopping everyone!<!--thanksgiving1-->
