The first thing my Aunt said to me on Thanksgiving morning when my family and I arrived at my Grandma’s house was, “Are you going shopping tonight?” Since I was 15 and working for my own money, I have loved Black Friday back when it actually took place on Friday.
My Dad is a Black Friday Champion, he will stand in the long lines of Target, Walmart, Coastal, etc. while I run around like a mad man and grab everything I can think of. This past Friday he met my brother, boyfriend, and I in the hotel hallway at 4 a.m. to drive half an hour to Oregon City for not only discounts but tax free shopping.

Hobby Lobby had nearly the entire store 50% off where I found a couple of cute signs for Christmas Gifts and bought Christmas decorations to decorate the tree with next weekend! I was able to buy $100 worth of stuff for $47!
Despite having an incredibly full basket at Ulta on Thursday evening, I walked out of the store earning close to 100 rewards points and saving $45 dollars! Ulta is always on my list of where I need to shop on Black Friday because I buy items like my shampoo (32 oz bottle) on that night once a year and my mascara I purchase that night last me at least 4 months. The bottle of Philosophy Face Wash (16 oz) will last me until Black Friday next year too!
Black Friday Stops
Today on Cyber Monday, my email is flooded with deals from all the places I have shopped over the years. I would much rather shop on Black Friday and get deals on Christmas gifts so I can buy my loved ones more on their list!
Happy Shopping XOXO
