So what did you buy during Black Friday?

Post by sdwhru » Thu Dec 05, 2019 12:13 pm

Anything you were really excited about?  I bought Christmas presents mostly; most of them small.  I did buy a few things here  :-D and at Michaels


EDITED - I NEVER go to the store for BF shopping mine is all done online and I usually start at Wednesday night at 11 pm.  Ain't no way getting around those pushy people.  I did go to a local craft show/fair but totally different; not crowded with lots of people.

I'm not much of a Black Friday shopper, or shopper in general, but someone we know had a baby on Thanksgiving so I went to order her a gift. With all the Black Friday sales, I ended up sending her 4 baby outfits for the same amount of money that would have gotten 1 or 2 and free shipping. I also ordered coffee pods for my Nespresso and got a free mug. 

So, I guess I did good for Black Friday and didn't have to leave mu house.

I didn't order anything on Black Friday (except for ACOT Secret Sister gift) or even get out to shop.  I did take advantage of ACOT's cyber sale on Monday.  I also ordered some alphas from Bella Blvd because their site was 1/2 off on Monday.

The only Black Friday shopping I did was at ACOT for a few little things and the Christmas Grab Bag (which I received and LOVE).

There isn't a single retail item anyone could sell to me for even a penny that would entice me to go out and deal with those crowds.  As I get older, my tolerance for those kinds of situations erodes.

Well, ok . . . maybe a car.  I'd go out for a one cent car.

I don't do a whole lot of BF shopping, but I did grab some of the Simple Stories from here and got some things on my Wishlist I had.

PetCo was having 50% off on toys and treats so I stocked up - both for my own furbabies for Christmas but also for a couple of friend's doggies I buy for too.

Carter's was having a great sale too - doorbusters and up to 70% off in Clearance. I got both of my nephews several outfits and a special Christmas shirt for Draven and a Christmas sleeper for Jasper. Plus free shipping and stackable coupons/promo codes, I spent less than $100 on both of them! Now on to toys and books for them! ;)

I only did Black Friday here on ACOT - I couldn't pass up some of the deals on 6x6 pads and a couple of Echo Park collection packs. But I did do Cyber Monday - Old Navy and Macy's. I got DS three pairs of jeans for the price of 1 and a $65 shirt at Macy's for $15. He really only wants clothes and Dungeons & Dragons stuff LOL. For DD, I got her clothes at both places too. You couldn't pay me to go shopping in person on Black Friday. I don't like shopping at Target at 8am on a random Tuesday let alone Black Friday ROFL!!!
Happy Scrapping!

The only Black Friday Shopping I did was here at ACOT! There were several collection packs that I wanted and I figured I would stock up while we are stationary for a while. I had no desire to be out in stores on BF!

my favorite kind of shoopping - pets and babies    :-D :-D    Shopping for kids toys are so much fun; about as much fun as buying new doggie toys  :-D

The only Black Friday shopping that I did aside from online, Amazon.... was buying a mattress for a young man we go to church with that had been sleeping on the floor of his apartment.  Went in the store, bought it and left.  Went back Saturday to pick up and take to him....

I don't like shopping on a normal day, let alone when there are a ton of people all wanting the same thing.... nope.  Between the online purchases for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, my mail carrier, UPS and FedEx are tired of visiting me.

No brick and mortar shopping for me on Black Friday. I do it all online. I can't take those crowds. I shopped the ACOT BF sale and also Macy's and Kohl's. No leaving the house, no battling the crowds, and it all gets delivered. Easy peasy! lol

Not only did I brick and mortar shop... the online was even worse.  My girlfriend and I meet for breakfast and make a day of it :) Then, I come home and make a night of it shopping... I won't even discuss Cyber Monday.  I budget for this time of year so it turns into a free for all!

I placed an ACOT order online and spent a LOT at Wild Birds Etc, now have buyers remorse and doing returns to WBE.  Well, actually, I had buyers remorse when the guy rang me up and said the total out loud, but i was too embarrassed to say no at the time.....

OH, Wednesday, before BF, I bought DH a 65" TV and Soundbar.  NOW maybe he will build my Entertainment Center to put it in!!!!?????

I AVOID the crowded stores on BF.
