I was up and shopping at 5 a.m. yesterday morning at the Target in College Station.  Those people are CRAZY!  When I arrived (at 4:50 a.m.), the line wrapped around the building.  By the time I made it through the line and into the store, people were already leaving with their purchases.  As always, the big fights occurred over electronic items.  Good thing I wasn’t going for those, and note to self, I don’t think I ever will.  With my trusty list in hand, I escaped unscathed with a few of my treasures, and then it was off to Wal-Mart.

I walked in, and quickly walked out.  That place was scary.

From there, I stopped by Toys R Us.  I wasn’t sure what to expect since they’d been open since midnight.  I figured most of the hustle and bustle would be gone, and I was right.  What was left resembled a battleground of sorts.  I tiptoed over spilled displays and carefully meandered around the leftovers looking for some spoils, and yes, I found a few more treasurers there as well.

By 7 a.m. I’d knocked out a big portion of my Christmas list, and stopped by Kohl’s as an afterthought.  Big fun.  The lines were still crazy long, but I found some great gifts there, and even one little item for me.  :)

Black Friday is usually a solo trip for me, but it’s way more fun with a partner.  Dividing and conquering is definitely a  more productive way to go, but I was successful, and now just have to do that whole wrapping part.  After I check out the Cyber-Monday deals of course.

Any successes out there on your part?
