I hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving and didn't overdo it on pie. If you're like my family, the turkey was turkey was turkey. Everyone was doing fine until the deserts came out. Then they gorged. LOL
Except for me!! I'm so proud of myself, I've got to brag for just a minute. I made the crustless pumpkin pie that Janelle posted on Monday and it was wonderful. I had one of them, with some fat free cool-whip for a whopping 2 points!! My hubby is still feeling bad from overeating. hehe
Then this morning, I made the foray out into the Black Friday Madness. I only had 1 destination in mind - Best Buy. My target - Microsoft Home and Student. It regularly retails for $169.99 (although Sam's Club normally has it for $125.99).
Best Buy was offering it this morning for $69.99. I decided that was worth fighting the traffic and crowd for. Although, I didn't go at 5:00, when Best Buy opened, I got there around 7:30. I parked, started walking toward the building and stopped in my tracks.
The line to get into Best Buy was wrapped around the building. Screw that! My time is worth more than the $60 I was going to save in getting it here over Sam's Club. Plus, I didn't have a coat. The temp is 43 and the wind is blowing like crazy.
Nope, I get in my car and head home. Then my gut says, "Just go to Sam's Club and get this over with." So I head my car to Sam' Club, find a parking space no problem. Walk in, go straight to the software section. Pick up the box and see that the price tag is marked out and there's no software, it's just an empty box.
I take it to the jewelry counter and she says, "Do you need to check out?"
Oh, this is sweet!! It got sweeter.
She rang it up and it was only $59.99, and three minutes later I was walking out the door with the last copy!! Woo-hoo!!
So did anyone else brave the Black Friday traffic and crowds? What sweet deals did you get? Was it worth getting up at 0'dark thirty?
Have a super Friday and a fantastic weekend!!!
Peace and love,
