Black Friday Savings!!

Back again lovely readers! I know its been a while, but I just HAD to post the great deals I got this year for Black Friday shopping! I should let you all know that Black Friday is one of my most favorite days of the year. This year we woke up bright and early at 330, headed out about 430 and arrived at our first destination before 5 am. Spent 5 am-1 pm shopping, took an hour break and headed out again to a couple more stores. All in all spent about 12 hours shopping by the time we were done for the day. I ended up falling right asleep at about 9:15 pm that night, but it was so worth it! I'm sure I walked off all of the calories I ate for Thanksgiving dinner too! Now for the deals:

I was also able to get an Adobe Photoshop Book from Borders for $19.98 that was regularly $39.99 thanks to the 50% coupon!! Stood in line there 45 minutes, but it was worth it!!

Finally, I have needed to get a wreath for my door for the last few years, but am too cheap to fork out the $25-50 for them so I decided to go to JoAnn's Fabric and get stuff to make my own. The wreath and all the decorations were 60% off so I only spent $9.99 including tax and was able to MAKE this:
Not too shabby in my opinion and I saved at least $15!!!

So all in all my Black Friday was a very successful one. Some of the items bought were gifts for family and some were gifts to myself. I probably spent more than I should have, but I saved more than I spent so it's all good!


  1. Oh my! you go so much!! Wow! Im so happpy for you-- I cant wait for my bedroom set to get here!!

    That's my biggest purchase of the year!

    Anyways -- hope you had a happy thanksgiving! :)

  2. Wow, you got some awesome deals! I only went to Walmart for Midnight Madness, and that was the extent of my Black Friday shopping.

    P.S. Great movie deals, but I just have to say how surprised I was at how much I LOVED 500 Days of Summer. :)

  3. UGH! I am so jealous! I would have totally braved the crowds for those savings (I'm Canadian, we don't get cool shit like Black Friday in this country! Our people are too scared of confrontation!)

  4. Wow! I'm now following you through the Love is Everywhere Blog Hop. I hope you'll do the same! You can find me @

    Sofia's Ideas

  5. I just wanted to say hello and that I grabbed your button to share on my 'Spread the Love' page :)

    Have a fabulous week!
