I'm staying home. Even if I had money to blow, I didn't see any sales that would have lured me out.

Been saving for a new TV for us. We've wanted a flat screen to go above our fireplace since we bought the house. 2 weeks ago the TV started sounding like the Devil every now and then...litereally. The sound gets all messed up and sounds like Satan.

Point being I got the 32" Emerson that we had looked at from WalMart ONLINE!!! Only $215 TOTAL after tax and free shipping!!

I'm stoked.

I did online shopping only this year.

Walmart: Pj's for my 4 yo (only one style left by the time I logged on) and a t-shirt for my 11 yo. ~$14.

Target: Paul Frank pj's, undies and t-shirt for my 11 yo, Cal King flannel sheet set for me and DH. Only thing "cheap" was the sheet set, but my 11 yo loves Paul Frank and it was free shipping so I splurged a little. ~$60.

Wet Seal: 4 t-shirts, 2 tank tops and 1 sweater for my 11 yo ~$33.

Old Navy: 2 pairs jammie pants for 11 yo, 3 shirts and 2 pairs pants for my 4 yo, 2 pairs jammie pants for DH, slippers for DH and a t-shirt for DH (from my sis, she will pay me back for this). ~$77.

I don't do "Black Friday", but on the 15th our son bought a game system, this Wednesday it was messing up so he returned it, they wouldn't replace it sense the stock they had was for the Black Friday deal so he got his cash back.. Well, he went to a gaming place to get one and they said to come back Friday and get a free $60 game with it, done deal.....

I got a set of 4-16 oz. Tervis Tumblers (lifetime warranty, made here in FL) at Beall's for $15.49!!! They normally sell for $12 EACH. They're awesome. Ice stays in them for hours and they are really good about their warranty. You don't even have to have a receipt because their name is embossed on the bottom of the cups.



Best part? This is ALL I spent today. Exactly what I wanted, and all I really needed. I did get a 30 lb. container of Tidy Cat litter for $7.99, but we needed that and it's in the kit/bath budget for the month, so I don't count that towards "Black Friday" spending. Plus, it came with a $5 coupon towards any Purina product so the cats will be getting canned cat food and treats for their Xmas presents :)

Been saving for a new TV for us. We've wanted a flat screen to go above our fireplace since we bought the house. 2 weeks ago the TV started sounding like the Devil every now and then...litereally. The sound gets all messed up and sounds like Satan.

I HATE doing this, because you got a great deal :) So I don't wanna burst your bubble, BUT... I do have to warn you about putting a TV over a fireplace. You should burn a fire and see what kinda temp it's going to be up on that wall before you put anything electronic up there. It might warp the screen or melt the plastic. My parents are considering doing the same thing. It's like the only good place in their living room to put a flat screen. I'd just hate to see you (or them) ruin a great deal on accident :( I don't know what kind of set-up you've got at your place, but my parents would be hanging theirs just a couple of feet above where the fireplace is, not to mention the flu is just behind that wall.

I finished up all my Christmas shopping - most of it's done on Amazon - and this year I was able to get DH 2 Xbox games instead of the 1 I planned on because the Black Friday sale had them at $30 each instead of $50.

I did also spend $75 on myself at Nine West and got 3 pairs of shoes - I almost bought the same 3 pairs 3-4 weeks ago, but couldn't part with $150. I couldn't pass them up at $75 though!

Indy pack of 5 games @ steam for $5, World of Goo is so much fun.
