Ok that was last year's tree. It looks kind of empty to me. Hopefully year's tree will be better. First this was last year's Black Friday catch,( the pre-lit tree) I think I payed $29 for it. Ok my husband says thats what a $29 tree looks like. I think I was just rushing trimming it. I plan on using the same tree, just more ornamants and more time.
Ok here is my Top Do List
- Get Christmas decorations out
- Buy wrapping paper and bows
- Get some more house Christmas decorations
- Look for good sale on Yard inflatable and light up reindeer.
- Start Christmas shopping for boys.
- Start Christmas shopping for family & friends.
I really want to go to The Container Store, in Raleigh (http://www.containerstore.com). I have never been. I know I should find lots of stuff I can use. I have already been working on home organization. I still have areas to work on. The down stairs bathroom we need a better system for medicine storage and I still would like to have a neat bedroom closet system. So far I am working on kitchen.
One thing on my list is a gift wrapping storage system. I hate having to get paper for parties or gift bags. Its so expensive to buy that stuff at the last minute.
On to Black Friday Update
For me it was a bust. I did the 12 midnight run. I went straight to target. I really don't have a big list this year. Kids need clothes, college bound son wants SAT test prep books. Hubby needs clothes and yard tools. Youngest son wants video games but will probably only get one and books too.
Education comes first.
The big buys look like XBoxes . Looks like some people went a little crazy for X Boxes. Reports of pepper spraying ran rampant. Come on now is this really worth it? Keep In mind most of this madness happens at Wal-mart. I have noticed Wal-mart has no supervision on their crowd control or distribution of Black Friday merchandise. Its all out WWF brawl in there. Target, (did I mention that is my favorite spots) has sales person in parking lot and standing outside to form lines. I think they staff extra employees that day, they even give you store maps so you know where to look for converted items.
For me I am not getting hurt or hurting others for a sale. Where is the Holiday Spirit? I was back home in bed by 2 am. My find pajamas for boys. I am still looking for the rest of stuff to finish my list but the sales were not that great. I found that most stuff you can still get now and probably up until Christmas.
Come on now how many Flat screen TV's can one have ???
Well we are off the the start of the Christmas season. Happy shopping, wrapping, and trimming the tree.!
