In all honesty, the main reason I go is for socialization. I can't imagine how many calories I burned, just from laughing. P.S. Don't you just love that my sister and I showed up in pretty much the same sweaters!
We first went to Toys R' Us, which opened at 9. There is only one Toys R Us where we live, and to say it was packed would be an understatement. The line was about 12 stores long outside. It was so funny because when we pulled in, my mom commented on how it looked good that a lot of cars were leaving. Needless to say, we were one of those cars because we were NOT staying in that line!
So off to Wal-Mart we went! I got smart this year and brought my book with me. There's a lot of waiting around, particularly by yourself so I got some reading done. I actually have very little to show for Wal-Mart. I mainly got gifts for little ones in my family. I did score a soccer ball for my kiddos for only $4.97.
After Wal-Mart, we went to Target. I picked up two sweaters and a PJ set for a total of about $35. You'll notice, I shopped mainly for myself :) The joys of being 'childless'
Then we went to Kohls. I really didn't need anything, but I had a coupon so I picked up a scarf and a necklace set. The line was ridonculous!
Then, we hit up Starbucks. I am really not a coffee person and this is the one day I drink it. My husband's aunt suggested cafe mocha and it is really good. Here's a pic of us at Starbucks. I'm sure we looked like morons posing at the back of my mom's van, waiting for the self timer to go off. This was about 4 in the morning.
We then returned back to Toys R Us, only to discover my aunt left her purse at Starbucks...doh! After Toys R Us, we went back to my parents house, around 6ish, to drop off our loot and head back out. Here we are, refreshed and ready to go!
I scored a freezer for us to have in our garage! I'm pretty stoked about that. I also picked up these two shirts for $5 each.
I also got some sweet soap from Bath & Body Works. They all smell soooo good! I especially love the Christmas scents :)
My best deal of the day was at JCP. I'm a gold card member, so I periodically get $10 off a $10 or more purchase. I got these socks and necklace for under $3! LOVE!
If you have made it to the bottom of this post, kudos to you! I still think I am behind on my sleep, even though I slept for 14 1/2 hours the next day. I am off to eat dinner and have an early bed time :) Happy Monday! Only 14 more school days until Christmas Break! Whoop whoop!
