Yes, I Do Black Friday

Each and every year for the past 7 years, I have went shopping on Black Friday. Sometimes I don’t even sleep before I go – it just depends on what time the stores I’m interested in are opening.

I’ve been told I’m crazy – insane even – for heading to the stores on Black Friday, but you know what? I ALWAYS save a TON of money when I go shopping on Black Friday, so I don’t really care what people think of me. It’s all about finding what my family wants for Christmas for the lowest possible prices. Oh, and trying to complete all of my holiday shopping in a single day (which usually doesn’t happen, but I really do attempt it). So go ahead, snub your nose at me if you want, but I’m not passing up all of these great deals!

One of my favorite stores that I refuse to miss every year?

J.C. Penney!

I can’t pass up the chance to spend around $200 to get $500 or more in clothing for my family. It’s almost the same every single year. I always spend between $160 – $200, save between $300 – $400 and I always come home with more than $500 worth of clothing. That makes this mama happy!

The other store I’ll brave every year on Black Friday?


Although I’ve waited to check out in lines that wind around the entire store and all the way back to the entrance, I can always nab some awesome deals on Black Friday at Target. Now, I was a little disappointed last year that they stopped offering rainchecks on certain merchandise that was in the ad, but I was still able to get 9 of the 12 items that I came there for. No cart, but who needs one on Black Friday? Ahaahha! Maybe my friends are right – I am a little crazy – because on Black Friday, I think I’m super woman…until I get home and my arms feel like jello.

Anyway, because I’m such a huge fan of the biggest shopping day of the year, I thought I would share some of my finds with you over the next few days to get you just as hyped up about it as I am. That said, be on the lookout for some killer deals – but if you see me in the store, steer clear. I’ve been run over by cars, carts, wheelchairs and motorized scooters on Black Friday, but I always get my deal.

I’m going to do my best to label the best finds by store, but if you have a different suggestion, please feel free to let me know so that I can consider your input as I put these deals together.

I’m also going to be posting some online deals over the next few weeks, so don’t miss those either!
