I feel like the past week flew by, how ’bout you? Before I get to some of the steals I got from Black Friday & Cyber Monday shopping, here is what I ate for breakfast yesterday morning. I went with one cup of Kashi cereal, half a banana cut up, and a 90 calorie packet of Barney Butter. I mixed it all up and omg, it was soooooo good!!! My only complaint was that the Kashi cereal was very hard on my teeth. I have bad teeth so I had to let it soak in the milk for a bit before I could even get it chewed.
How was everyone’s Thanksgiving? I know I felt like a stuffed pig after it was all said and done but that’s a traditional part of the holiday I suppose; eating, eating, and eating. Truett looked handsome for the event and was cracking up for some reason. He can be so adorable when he’s not being a turd. Cute photo, however, I clearly need to sweep.
Soooo, who did some Black Friday shopping?? Well you know I did because it’s one of my most favorite times of the year. It’s an excuse to shop till I drop and still save a little money doing so!
Since Walmart changed things up this year with Open House (selling home, toys, and clothing at midnight vs 5am), I was able to get tons of shopping done before any of the other stores opened up at 5am. Some of the things I bought were
- Mainstays Towels for $1.33 (we have 3 bathrooms)
- Storage totes for $2.80 each
- 500 thread count sheets for $19.80
- Buzz Lightyear for $12
- Scooter for $12
- BIG pack of Play-doh for $8
- Hot Wheel cars, pack of 10 for $5
By the way, I think the way Walmart did it this year was awesome. It was still crowded but it really helped those of us who weren’t going after electronics.
I also got a fantastic ‘cyber monday’ deal online at Joann’s, buying the Cricut Cake Machine for (drumroll)…..$199!!!!!! HOLY HECK, that’s right, I said $199!! ~~don-cha wish you’re shopping skills were just like mine~~ I know Cat is gonna be totally jealous. *sticking out tongue*
Over the weekend we watched MegaMind. It was okay but I won’t be buying the DVD. I decided to keep my iPad and bought an iPad Keyboard Dock for it. I absolutely LOVE that thing! I should have bought it from the start. It just sits over there all pretty.
So did you guys get any great deals during Black Friday?
