Keep me away from crowds! I think people who go out on Black Friday are completely nuts. I do 90% of my shopping year round online. But when my son was running around the house talking about this one dumb toy he wants that I know will self destruct 5 minutes after it comes out of the plastic (that takes 25 minutes to tear apart…you know what I’m talking about!!!) I looked online and found those awful words…OUT OF STOCK ONLINE.
The toy was well stocked in the store according to the online info and the Black Friday deal was $14.00 less than the regular price (not indicated in that photo). I told the hubs I was setting out for Target at noon on Black Friday and he feared for my life. But off I went. There was a lot of traffic but admittedly I took a bad road. I made a mental note to go home a different way.
I planned to park anywhere I could find, as far away as I could find, but as I pulled in I found a sneaky spot up front and I just knew luck was with me.
When I entered the store it was a bit of a circus but I went right for the toys. My plan was only to get the toy, and a chai tea latte, and leave. No distractions! A very nice employee directed me to the item right at the end of an aisle. There were loads of them. I snatched one. I waited on line for about 5 minutes.
I rewarded myself with my Starbucks tea and then drove far away………..until I return on Monday, that is. :) The things we do for a few bucks! The things we do for our kids!
Did you score any Black Friday deals?
