As I mentioned, Black Friday is one of my favorite holidays of the year. I go out every single year and snag great deals. This year was not nearly as fruitful as last year (or the year before), but I managed to grab a couple great items.
I also went in of a list of people I needed to shop for, along with items that I was looking for. My list included: sweaters, a variety of pants, button-ups, scarves, and other such things.
First, I headed to Walmart at 10pm when doorbuster sales started. I snagged these DVDs, though I sadly was unable to get Bridesmaids.
Walmart Deals: Moulin Rouge: $1.96; The Mummy: $1.96; The Hangover: $1.96; Beastly: $5.00; Easy A: $5.00.
They also had TV seasons for $10. I ended up buying some for X-mas gifts. The Wal-mart deals were really the best around in this case. I haven’t ever seen any movies (even on Amazon) for a lower price, even on Black Friday.
The second place I headed was Old Navy. My sister really wanted to go there, so we ended up waiting in line until they opened at midnight. Then I snagged a couple things and immediately popped into the dressing room before it filled up.
Old Navy Deals: White Jeans: $20 (marked down from $34.50); Oatmeal Sweater: $15 (marked down from $36.94).
Target: Grey Sweater: $17.99 (full price); 2 pairs of gloves (not pictured): $2.
Rue 21 Deals: 7 pairs of underwear (not pictured): $7.00 ($1 per pair deal); Scarf: $12.99.
Old Navy had decent deals, but my sister had gone there the Sunday before Black Friday and told me they had even better deals then. So in that sense, it was a little disappointing. However, I chose to snag a pair of white jeans since I’ve been hunting for a pair of a bit. And then a comfy sweater.
Target yielded it pitiful results. The best deals they had were on movies, but the deals weren’t as good as Walmart’s. I ended up purchasing a sweater I found, even though it was full price because it was exactly what I was looking for.
Rue 21 was perfect for the cute underwear stop since Victoria’s Secret was too crowded to be worth going in to (seriously). The scarf was an unexpected adorable bonus.
My last “real” Black Friday purchase was from American Eagle. They were having 40% off the entire store, so I couldn’t resist finding the perfect plaid button up.
American Eagle Deals: Plaid Button-up: $23.70 (full price $39.40).
I purchased this dress on Saturday, from a small boutique in my town called Les Saisons. They have the most stunning clothing, and I fell in love with this dress they had a couple weeks ago. When my sister said she was going down there, I jumped at the chance to try it on and I couldn’t resist bringing it home.
I also ended up hunting around on Amazon, and purchased a year’s subscription to Cosmo ($5.00), a year’s subscription to Vogue ($15.00), and a three barrel curling iron ($30 marked down from $85). Which satisfied my Black Friday deals mania.
Obviously, I also purchased a couple Christmas gifts, but they weren’t included in the post for obvious reasons.
