So here is the run down for this year:
We were at the In-laws for the Thanksgiving holiday in Jackson, MI. For me that equals less people shopping (smaller town) more deals for me!
Started out at 2:30am to head to Jackson Crossings Mall
I promptly got in line for Best Buy rumor was that they would hand out tags starting 2 hours before they opened at 5am.
My SIL headed to Kohls, opened at 3 am, She was in search of several items and I was in search of a Shark Steam Mop for all those tile and wood floors in my house.
Then she ran to Target that opened at 4am, I was still in line, freezing. At this point I considered snuggling up to a stranger, for real, I was like well, I could rationalize this. However my choices were 3 men in camo (nothing wrong with camo) but a bit scruffy & one of them had their wife with or the 2 Motorcycle Gang Members behind me that happened to be carrying a concealed weapons, guns. So skip that.
Score, for SIL at Target, so she ran to Toys r Us for me. I'm still in line. 5am: We head into Best Buy for my wireless printer and labeler. Yep, I'm a nerd.
By 5:30 we were back out the door and into the car.
Quick run through Burger King for Breakfast, did I mention it was still dark out?!?!
Onto Joann's Fabric: In search of Cricut cartage, fabric, and Sizzix dies for SIL. Wait in line for 10 min & scored a $5 gift card when we walked in because of an ad misprint. Bonus! Plus, we had a 20% off coupon that could be used on everything we bought. We scored a Cricut cartage for about $25 dollars and SIL scored some Sizzix dies for around $10, normally $45.
Next onto Westwood Mall:
6:30am: Gymboree: 30% off the whole store, plus we have a 20% off coupon.
JC Pennys: For SIL
Victoria's Secret: Buy One Bra, second 50% off (not to get to personal but I desperately needed new bras, desperately) Plus 10$ off coupon, free underwear coupon, plus free bag with products inside.
Younkers/Elder Beerman: SIL scored some earring for $0.52 cents because of $10 off coupon.
Bath & Body Works: Buy 3, get 3 free products, plus another free item, $10 coupon, plus I purchased the bag for $20 with over $120 worth of free items inside.
Walmart: Items for the family that my Small Group at Church has adopted (2 comforters for $19 each, and a pot and pan set for $19.)
Back to Joann's for fabric: Nonscore: The line was INSANE, we were number 68c and they were on 67b, we waited 20 min and they only moved 2 numbers. So we left. We were yelled at by a stranger for no reason, interesting.
Big Lots: Nothing we needed.
Michael's: Christmas Ribbon for 70% off.
Another stop that will remain undisclosed due to gift purchase. :)
Swan Creek Candles: They have the BEST candles! To pick up some wax for my Stampin' Cousin.
Toy House: Picked up 2 puzzles for Adventure Baby.
Money Spent: Around $250, YIKES, money saved by shopping early and only buying things on sale plus free items, $700!!! Now that's what I like to see!
And we were done by 11:30am!!!
