***DU it. Give it Up! Post your BLACK FRIDAY PURCHASES Right Here in this Handy Thread!!!***stars.

I got nuthin' based on sales, but did treat myself to something (but it ought not accrue to a Black Friday sale):

On Wednesday I had to replace my iPhone and saw the ***iPad Mini***



And, having had my older iPad stolen in September, and with insurance money in hand, I decided to get one today!

I have heard about people who waited in line for three LCD TVs and whatnot.

Would have gotten it yesterday but every Apple outlet was closed as part of the build up.

So...

What did YOU get, if anything???


And props to you if you got nothing at all.

BTW-- I'm leaving now to the local Walmart to see if they're picketing.

I'll be glad to stand with them.

11. Dammit.

 

I'm craving and I'm conserving my last 1/2 gram of Bubba until my new red card comes in...

My other one expired today, and talked to the owner the day before, thinking I would come in on Friday and pick up something - told me the law says it ends on the day, so Nov 23rd was the day, so I'm fucked. I sent out for the new one on October 31st - the only off day I had.

Which store did you go to?

16. I went to Golden Meds on Peoria

Not the greatest selection of weed but what they have (anywhere from 7-20 strains on a given day) has always been excellent quality. Their house hash is the best I've ever had though, they carry pre-packaged hash that is not bad but the stuff they make themselves is a true treat.

but ordered stuff online for all the adults on my Christmas list...six family members. Also ordered some cute clothes for the 22-month-old twin girls.



On edit: Still have six kids remaining, but I am waiting for their wish lists/size information since they have definite tastes and keep growing. Nothing like seeing a happy kid on Christmas Day.

37. I bought Lana Del Rey's brand new 8 song EP "Paradise" for myself

 


I refrained from doing any black friday shopping/holiday shopping.

BTW-it was around 6am at Best Buy
but I did peak into Walmart, and it was deserted.
I saw 4 cops in the place, and aisles and aisles of NO customers.
Whether that is because they were there at midnight or something, it was suprisingly empty.

Also, the one I looked at had no pickets or workers outside.

I was wearing a button for the occasion "UNION". And I was looking for someone to argue with, but there was no one. (drat).

42. up at 4am to take daughter to airport...

breakfast at Acadia Diner in Burlington

went to Home Depot to peruse the Kitchen Cabinets... decided on (not to buy yet) unfinished pine that I will stain with 'winter moss' when I get them...


...then headed out happy to have made a decision; but ahhh, a tool chest caught my eye and I bought it in order to organize my tools... (noted that the WalMart across the way was somewhat busy )

I've spent today finishing up winterizing the apartment with materials I bought several days ago -- and eating leftovers.

I am finding grandparenthood to be an expensive hobby. Cardboard kiddie books cost as much as full-length novels, good grief!

I was determined not to buy anything that wasn't absolutely necessary, though I did break down and actually look at the merchandise at World Market. But looking is not buying.

payday is next week, so I sat this one out. I've sat out quite a few, actually, because I haven't seen anything on offer that I really want or need.

couldn't be happier (I thought it had expired)!

I haven't gone out on Black Friday since the 80s.

Love to shop at craft-art shows throughout the year for special gifts. I do most shopping online. Intend to do a bit of homemade gifts this year.

93. You're right! Took my kitty Figaro to the vet.

I'd kept him in the patio for 2 weeks due to a hurt paw. Took him back in today, turned out he was bleeding on the towel my daughter wrapped him up in and he had a bloody little crater that was a former abscess. They cleaned it up in another room and I heard some yowls and a couple of "OH MY GOD!"s!!!

Baby Girl came up to see me today and was the official kitty wrangler, a la wrap him up swaddled like a baby.

It was like a comedy routine when I introduced Baby Girl to the ladies at the front desk:"She doesn't sell her ass on the street. She doesn't get strung out on drugs. She's never been to jail. She graduated from college. She knows how to prevent babies. AANNNNNDDDD----she has a steady JOB!!!"

Can't you tell I'm proud of her???
Oh, and the cat survived and didn't freak out more than necessary!!

200. Wait! I shopped for the dogs!

Went to the local independent pet store and got wet food for the dogs, got home and realized I also needed dry food. That means I go back today, argh! (I love to support this store. Right now they are selling raffle tickets for $1 for some pet items, and all the proceeds will go to help feed the pets of homeless people. So each time I go in, I just tell them to add a couple of tickets to the bill.)

Also got a pattern from Joanns, milk and meat from the vitamin/grocery store and a few items from Trader Joes. Stayed far away from the mall areas...way too much humanity there for me.
