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?
