That was the most laid back Black Friday ever. I only left the house to go to Target, Walgreens & Big Lots and I spent about 15 minutes in each of those stores. Everything else was scored online thanks to GD.

This is the first year the I only stepped foot inside of one store, my usual first stop at Target and then Walmart, was just us going to Walmart. Target this year was so disappointing, i ordered just the couple of items that we wanted from them online.

Got everything on my list online this year. Ventured out with daughter for her to pick out tree and decorations for her new apartment. Target was sad. They still all kinds of TV left over. Not many out shopping this year, it didn't feel like.

Tomorrow I will be going to Home Depot to pick up my BF score from there. I really went big this year, got 2 jugs of Persil from them, saved $12 over what we normally pay. :sidesplit

The most money I spent in one place over the past week was at Kohls but that was all done online. Home Depot came in second place. But everything I bought at kohls or Home Depot wasn’t even for presents, just our house! I think my chiropractor’s office came in third place (my back is finally improving and I made sure to get an appointment on Friday afternoon to fix anything I may have screwed up while shopping BF morning) It has been a very odd shopping year so far.

Honestly the only B&M store I went to was Walmart...and for once it was quick and easy...using the online tracker I was able to get everything else online..I agree with Speeddiva , for me was really laidback..as I get older I can definitely appreciate the lack of stress.Wait stress and lack there of  doesn't go with BF..just ask Brad. :runaway:  :sidesplit

We actually ended doing most of our shopping in store this year. So many issues with Web Sites performing that we just couldn't get a lot of things online. So on Friday we went out for our normal ritual and finished probably about 85% of all our shopping if not more. Not a whole lot left to get for people which is great with me. We even came home and started wrapping, haven't been this far ahead of the game in a while. :)
