Battling Black Friday

For the first time EVER Jeremy and I headed out to do some Black Friday shopping. When he woke me up at 3:30 I told him that I wasn't ready yet and I would wake him up later. We both woke up around 7:30 and took our sweet time having breakfast with Colby and dropping him off at Pa's house. We got to Bowling Green around 10:00.

I was able to finish all of my Christmas shopping with the exception of 3 gift cards that I can pick up anytime and Jeremy's gift from Colby.

If you have never used price matching at Walmart, you have no idea what you are missing! We did not buy anything at any of the other stores, but got all of the other stores deals at Walmart! If you take your sales bill in with you they will give you any other local store's sales price on the exact same item. Here's a run down of SOME of the things I saved on:

-24 pack play-doh - Walmart price $9.98 - price match with Target $6.99
-10 pack Hotwheels - Walmart price $9.98 - price match with Toys R Us $4.99
-Nerf Dart Tag - Walmart price $39.98 - price match with Toys R Us $19.99

And the biggest savings of the day..........
-Nerf Wii Bundle (game, gun and darts) - Walmart price $59.99 - price match with Toys R Us ONLY $14.99!!!!!

Needless to say we were thrilled and we picked up several other great deals in addition to these. I am so relieved to be finished shopping just in case Cooper decides to show up on his own accord. Jeremy and I had a great time together today also, so thanks honey for talking me in to shopping today!!!

I have also included a couple of pictures from Thanksgiving Day. Enjoy!

I am so impressed. I have to say that I've never done that but I will have to start. That's a big savings!
