Black Friday

Hoooly cow! Yesterday was my first black Friday shopping experience. I didn't get an early start like I wanted to. I got out there at about 8am, I was hoping for 4am but oh well. I went to Babies R Us first and there was NO ONE there. I don't know if it was because everyone went there super early or if Toys R Us was more appealing, but I was not about to face the Toys R Us crowd. I ended up getting my 2 cans of formula for $35, clothes for 50% off and a Toy Story mini chair for my nephew for 50% off - wohoo! Then I ventured to the mall and surprisingly, it was not as bad as I thought! Once again, I don't know if it was because I got an early start but my first stop was JCPenney. I just got a few things for myself all at 50% off and a pair of leggings for Jaliyah for $3.99. I'm kicking myself in the butt now because I should have got work clothes for myself but oh well.

I just walked around the mall the rest of the time, the line for Victoria Secret wrapped about the upper level of the mall - I'm sorry but NO bra is worth that wait. Kohls had a 2 hour wait just to check out - no way jose.

I did a little online shopping when I got home, JCPenney was out of stock at the store for Jaliyah's Xmas dress, I got that 50% off on the website. I also did some shopping at and got some presents for Jaliyah. I did about 40% of my Christmas shopping yesterday, so I have a good start! Usually I'm the person at the mall on Christmas eve getting things lol Not this year!

Next order of business..making Jaliyah's stocking :) What kind of deals did you ladies find?

I didn't do Black Friday, I was too scared but I've heard it wasn't so bad. I also didn't have child care and I wasn't about to lug a 5 month old all over the place. So I didn't get anything. My mom and sister made a killing at Old Navy. I wish I had headed over there!

omg! Old Navy! THATS where I forgot to go - I knewwwww there was somewhere and I didn't make a list. Darn it! Well, good for your mom and sister lol And yeah I wasn't about to drag my baby out either, it was crazy how many people I saw with little babies!
