I didn't do much shopping at all. This is probably the first year in 20 that my sister and I didn't go out ANYWHERE :-(  I purchased a nugget ice maker from Sam's November sale. I also purchased the new Ninja Creami 11-in-1 machine from Amazon, signed up for credit card got $150 off (I had the first version, which I loved, selling to my sister to pay for this machine.) I got a few things at Bath & Body Works and got the special box. Everything was online except in store pick up for BBW.


I've (yes me, all by my lonesome) actually been installing a laminate floor in my livingroom and hallway for the last four days or so. Removed carpet and hardwood floors were in no condiiton to keep without total refinish which I couldn't afford (just did total bathroom remodel and backyard remodel in progress). LL Flooring gave me a killer deal on 30 year laminate, 89 cents/sq ft. Will probably finish floors tomorrow. I was trying to have livingroom and bathroom completed about a week ago until I was sidelined with floors.


In looking through all of the ads, I really didn't see much that excited me. I think because I REALLY didn't need or want anything specific. I am a gadget person, so the 2 items above spoke to me, but I didn't have to spend much time to get them. My sister got a motion clock from Sam's and is looking for a smaller tv on cyber Monday, but other than that I don't think she bought anything either.

I left town Friday morning to go to a hockey tourney for the boys, so I didn’t do any in-person shopping at all. However, I have kept Best Buy online pretty busy for the past month and today.
MacBook Pro 14”
65” Samsung QLED tv
LG smart washer and dryer
Thunderbolt 4 docking station
A bunch of display adapters
iPad for DS12
Three 32” monitors
Apple magic keyboard
PS5 games for DS12
Gaming keyboard and mouse for DS11

I also got a couple of cellular Apple Watches from Target, and random World Cup stuff for DS12 from soccer.com. I will probably get DS11 a new Fleury jersey from the Wild but I haven’t ordered it yet.

I just need to figure out what to get my mama for her birthday and Christmas and then I’m mostly done. I think this is the earliest I’ve had this much stuff for the boys.

I snagged several gifts; toys, socks, etc. I grabbed a new jacket for me as well.

I didn’t get a whole lot this year, but it would have likely been less if not for all of the awesome people here and on discord posting deals! I didn’t get very excited by looking at the ads, but seeing the deals get laid out on the Black Friday tracker here and people mentioning and linking things on discord helped me select some things I really did need after all. I appreciate you all so much!! Thanks!!

I didn't do as much BF shopping this year as in previous years, probably because my children are grown and I didn't need much. Mainly shopping for the grand this year...Here's what I ended up with


Pre BF Online




2 Rubbermaid container sets

Towels, hand towels and washcloths

Pioneer Women's bake set (first set the baking dish was broke on arrival, they sent me a new set and told me to keep, donate or trash the other set)




2 Big One Throws

6 candles 

3 Sweater Dresses


Bath and Body Works:


13 Lotions and 16 hand soap (pre BF) and 12 Sprays (BF weekend)


Black Friday I ventured out to my usual stores...






Christmas Tree Shops:


Rubbermaid containers

Gift bags

Cella's Chocolate covered cherries

Oven mitts, pot holders and kitchen towels (Christmas themed)

2 boxes Christmas Cards


I usually buy boxes of Victor Allen coffee (42 k-cups) for $10 every BF that lasts me practically a year, but this year I was disappointed to find out that they had been trying for months to get some in and were not successful...




1 Adult/1 kid matching pj's 


Old navy:


$5 pajama bottoms (the material seems really cheap and thin this year)





$1 one spot items (stocking stuffers)


Walmart didn't garner a trip instore this year... I wanted to go to JCPenney just to look, but didn't... I finished shopping early this year and headed home for leftovers, my couch and TV...
