It's been a few years since I have shopped on black Friday but I thought this year I would give it a try. Our local Air Force Exchange had a mini-netbook for $199 I was hoping to get for my husband. I left the house at 3:30 to get in line for the 4am opening. News radio was on in the car when I started it and the Dave Ramsey show was playing. It got me thinking about spending for the holidays. When I finally got to the front of the line at the exchange they were of course sold out of the netbooks so I just started to look around. I ended up leaving with nothing. I didn't think it was worth standing in line for 20 mins for a few things I didn't really need in the first place. I went to Target and Toy's R Us next and again walked out with nothing. It was really a waste of time. After listening to the show on the radio and really thinking about what I wanted to buy there was nothing I really felt the need to spend money on. I did get a few things a Michaels. Most of it was stuff I needed for school for Taylor. I homeschool our oldest daughter.
