~The Christmas Giveaway Event~
starts tomorrow December 1st.
Lianne scoping the ads.
We arrive at Wal-Mart, and to my horror, the parking lot is full. I mean full! There is not a spot left. We parked over in the neighboring Meijer's parking lot. I was scared! Where did all these people come from? We enter the doors. Are you kidding me, there are people everywhere. So many people and no room to move anywhere, much less maneuver a cart through it.
Lianne gives me the job of pushing the cart and parades me through the chaos of Wal-Mart. We stop at the jeans area that are on sale. She parks me across the way and starts hurling jeans at me from across the aisle!! Then she starts guiding me with the cart and says "Hurry!!". There is like people everywhere blocking me as I try to get through with a cart.
Waiting with the shop vac peeps until 12:01.
It took us 1 1/2 hours to get through to the checkouts. That was just sheer ridiculousness!! I came away with : 1 Oster griddle $9.97, 1 shop vac $15, 2 character pjs size 6/7 $4each, Toy Story DVD $10, and Diet Coke $1,48 (We got thirsty in line), and The Lord of the Rings Trilogy $1.96 x 3
Next was Target sales. We got in line at 2 am and the store opened at 4am. It was very cold standing out there for 2 long hours!! Once we got in the store, it was even more chaos!! People and carts everywhere! I was looking for my Sunbeam Stand Mixer for $24.99. I had asked ahead of time where they were in the store, so I went right away as soon as the doors opened. Then I saw 2 sale associates and asked them, they pointed to the right direction. I saw it! I scooped it up and put it in the cart! I got it! I won!! Then on to the $1.49 bath towels. I didn't get the $1.33 bath towels at Wal-Mart, so I was glad to get to them first at Target. I scored 11 bath towels!!
I finally find Lianne, after she came back empty handed. We finally make it to checkouts, and he rings up my mixer and I can't wait to see the $24.99 price ring up. But, all I see is $69.99!! What? I grabbed the wrong mixer. In all the chaos and confusion, I grabbed the wrong mixer!!! Grr. So, I leave Target, after standing in line for 2 hours out in the stinking cold, and in the checkouts for forever with 11 towels. Great!
I went home finally at 5 am to my bed frustrated and tired. I think next time I will just stay home and order my items online, Hmmmm. Sounds good to me.
I hope everyone had a blessed and happy Thanksgiving. I hope everyone did better than I on Black Friday :)
