Happy Small Business Saturday!
Speaking of Black Friday (aka: one of my most favorite days of the year), we got a TON of awesome deals this past week while we did some early Black Friday shopping online. Even though we didn’t have much to get in store, we headed out for a few hours around 4:30AM to see if any of the stores still had the items we wanted. We were back home by 7:30 and I was probably back in my pajamas by 8:00, ready to enjoy a lazy day of shopping online and movies.
This has been a big tradition for us since we met, so I was really excited to get out there to keep the tradition going even though we didn’t have a ton to get!
This year, Target was our main place to be. We got some of this pre-Black Friday – like our iPod – but they had the best deal on it a few weeks before even compared to the Black Friday sales. This was our first stop many, many hours after they were open and it perfect. No crowds, easy to find everything, and they still had everything we were looking for. Check out the #MKOH tag to see what else Target has going on this holiday season!
We’ve done the most shopping here two years in a row now because I’m a big fan of not fighting the crowds and shopping in my pjs. This year we scaled back on the things we bought in general, but Amazon was great to get some of the things we’ve been talking about getting this year. A new axe, a GPS unit, and the 4-1 Griddler to replace a few of our appliances.
We hit a few other stores and got a new Christmas tree, so we did pretty well this year. But I’m really excited to browse some of my favorite Etsy shops this weekend, too. It’s the one time of year that I really enjoy overindulging in shopping ;)
Did you go out to shop, stay in to shop online or skip the shopping all-together?
What were some of your favorite deals that you scored this year?
