My Black Friday List

Black Friday

Every year right after Halloween I start searching the Internet to see if I can find Black Friday ads that have been leaked.  They trickle in slowly but surely.  Companies are trying to beat people from leaking the ads by releasing their ads even earlier.  The funny thing about it all is the ads are usually leaked by employees from the company.  When I worked retail we would get the ads about 3-4 weeks before they were effective (all year long).  So when we saw the Black Friday ad we always premade our list for that store.  If the companies don’t want the ads leaked then don’t give them to employees to check out earlier than necessary. Duh!

I look at all the ads when I actually get the paper on Thursday, but only check out the stores I am interested in online.  I check the paper ads because I will take them with me to get stores to price match the ads.  The stores that I always check out are Wal-Mart, Target, Kohl’s, Menard’s, Meijer, and Toys R Us.  I check out all the stores ads and if I can get them at Wal-Mart I do, and get a price match.  I avoid Toys R Us at all costs, but check the ad out to find the good deals.

Key to understand my list

  • WORD -Item I want but will probably not get
  • Blue-Really want to try to get
  • Red-Notes
  • Black-On the list and will probably get if available when B goes to the store

Kohl’s-Starts Monday

  • pg 42-Dana Buchanan Lexi Tote-$24.99

I made this purchase on Monday and got 5 new bras, one black bag, and a t-shirt.  My total after an additional 15 % was $112  with $30 back in Kohl’s cash.

Toys R Us-Starts on Monday

  • pg 13-Hot Wheels 6-Lane Raceway-$49.99
  • pg 18-Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7” Lite-$79.99 Better deal at Meijer

B purchased the Hot Wheels track on Monday night for $49.99.  He has previously bought two of these.  The first he got for $79.99 and the second he got for $69.99.  This was such a deal that he did buy a third and returned the first two.  We basically saved $80.  The first one B bought in the store the other two were delivered to the house for free because they have free shipping if you spend over $19.

Here is my list for Black Friday.  I gave this to B and what we get will all depend on him.  B and I used to go out together and stopped once I was pregnant with S.  S and I went one year with B and it was a fun and easy experience.  It is way too much for us to take both kids so I stay home with them and B battles the crowds.  This is the only time when B will volunteer to go and hunt for all the deals.  I think he really loves shopping on Black Friday just to see what he can find.

Disclaimer: I have never claimed to be any great writer. So any mistakes that are made are my fault. Sometimes I mix up names B, S, and P, but I think you can figure out who I am talking about. If you find any grammatical errors just fix it in your mind so it sounds right.
