Gettin Sketchy on Black Friday

Friday, November 27, 2009

I've never been a Black Friday shopper. It's just not my idea of fun to get up at 4 a.m. and wait in hour long lines to save a few bucks. I always seem to find what I am looking for each year and still manage to save but last night I was flipping thru the ads I hadn't bothered to really look at earlier and noticed that ToysRUs opened at midnight. So I told my husband "Hmm...I be there won't be alot of people since it's still Thanksgiving" I decided to drive on down to the one near us to see what I could find. My daughter really likes Dora and they had this on sale for only 9.99 regular price at Target was 27.99


So as I pulled up to the parking lot there were people in lawn chairs and blankets outside Office Depot and Best Buy and the parking lot was totally packed! WOW, I had no idea it would be this crowded. I waited in line for over 45 mins to get in ToysRUs, shopped for 20 mins total and then waited another hour and a half to pay. I got home at 3 a.m. I sure hope my daughter loves her toys...lol

It's a time for a new sketch and a new sponsor at Get Sketchy! This week's fabulous sponsor is Craft Pudding

Love, love, love your card! I'm the total black friday shopper but didn't leave until 4:45 this morning...lines were shorter than usual and sometimes no lines at all...I tell you though, I think when my kids were younger I went to Toys R Us once...that place drives me bonkers.
