Black Friday

November 29th, 2009 at 08:34 am

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.

    Darn that Dave Ramsey! Only kidding. The same thing happened sort of to me, went to Best Buy and walked out, too crazy. The only thing I really wanted to get was the Christmas Tree from Home Depot and the tent/tunnel combo for granddaughter at Ace Hardware. Luckily I got both. Good luck with your on-line shopping.

    I think that it's interesting what we can be lead to do (or not do) when we stop to actually think about it! Ramsey was the catalyst in this case, but there are lots of ways to make ourselves take a moment to consider our actions. It's one of the best forms of insurance that we can avoid regret later, whether financial or otherwise. I hope that you find lots of great deals online!
