I had never gotten up early to go Black Friday Shopping….

KarenBlakeWe know the holiday season is upon us. I love Christmas it was always a very big deal in my house. I love to shop for presents especially when I know exactly what someone wants. I like it when a family member gives me a hint…then I’m off and running.

The one thing I have never ever done is gotten up early on “Black Friday” and been on a mission for a bargain. Well, I did last week. My sister said she wanted a big screen TV for her basement so I went on the Best Buy website and flipped the circular and found what I thought was the perfect TV at a price I could afford. At that point I wasgood to go!

The next morning I was up early (but really not that early) the store opened at 9am but I get up for work at 3:30am so getting up at 7:30 was a pleasure! Anyway, I was thinking the line would be a mile long…I pull up to the store ay 8:30 and there were a few people sitting in their cars…at 8:45 people started to line-up I was the 6th person in line. The doors opened at 9…I went right to the TV Department picked out what I wanted…paid…had the TV put in my car…and I was out of there by 9:17!!! No fuss. No Muss. I couldn’t believe it! Practically no line…barely any waiting and then back home by 9:45!

I like this “Black Friday” thing! I think I’ll do it again next year!
