Black Friday Doings

November 27th, 2015 at 04:16 pm

After a wonderful Thanksgiving, it is now Black Friday. We had stores open yesterday and last night and again early this morning. I guess I am not much of a shopper because I can't see missing out on Thanksgiving to go and buy more stuff. I have no desire to fight crowds and I'm not sure the "deals" really are deals. I think our society has become so skewed that we put shopping ahead of other things.

It's rainy, windy, and the temperature is dropping here. I'm glad it is just rain. We plan to do our weekly grocery shopping today. Normally DH does the Aldi run when I'm at work, but since I'm blessed with the day off, I get to go and then we go to the other grocery store to get the things we can't get at Aldi.

I have almost all of my Christmas shopping finished. I have one more thing to get and two packages to mail, but other than that, I think I'm good. I have either made or purchased things throughout the year when I found them on sale. DH picks out the majority of the stuff and we have a Christmas club account so what he picks out is within my budget. I also have addressed all of our Christmas cards and I purchased stamps on Wednesday. I did cut back on the cards this year. It is getting pretty expensive to send them anymore although I did find cards throughout the year more reasonably priced.

Lunch is leftovers. Not Thanksgiving, but from the other night.

I have some baking to do for our church's Christmas bazaar, but I bought the baking stuff when it was on sale.

So, did you face the crowds and the chaos to shop?

    Was rather mother-hubbardish here. Went to Aldi's and spent $115, so we are brimming and bursting at the seams with groceries. We are having a party on Sunday to celebrate my daughter's birthday - Italian: lasagna, ravioli, meatballs and cake.

    I got to the airport around 5:10 a.m this morning and got picked up around 3:30 p.m this afternoon ... so no black Friday shopping for me! Smile

    Went to Aldi, Target, Meijer and Kroger. None of which were all that busy. I did this shopping between noon and 4 p.m.
