Black Friday Shopping

I have been hearing and reading about black friday but never been experienced it  until last night .For the fast few  weeks my son has been  bugging me  about it.He wants a Kindle Fire for a birthday present since his birthday falls a day before thanksgiving. I checked out the items on sale and the Lego blocks really caught my attention .Walmart has a  lot of items on sale for a very reasonable price which is a good opportunity to purchase  for the Christmas holiday.The store will start the sale at 10 pm for non electronics and 12 midnight for the electronic items including the Kindle.Me and hubby showed up at the store at 8 pm to look for the items on my list. I focused on the  Lego Blocks ($30) and stayed there up until 10 pm since they only have 12 items left. Aside from the 2 boxes of Lego,we were able to get 3 boxes of Tonka cars ($10 each) ,a Disney/Pixar Cars 2 - World Grand Prix ($20) and an erasable black board($8) for my 3 years old son.I got 5 items for me and hubby too.And the last stop was at the electronics section  for my eldest's Kindle Fire  for only $199.

It is  really surprising how people patiently waited  and following the line for the Black Friday deal.I thought that people would be more aggressive but they were really nice except when shoppers try to cut in the line.I was exhausted going back home but happy because I got want I want for a good discount which is great.

  1. Whenever I hear about Black Friday I itch to ask my uncle and aunt in Canada to buy me something like a really cool gadget or some toy that is too expensive to buy here. But then I change my mind since I am shy like that. But I think it would be cool if we had Black Fridays over here in the PH too.

  4. Ooh!!! So lucky to be able to take part in the sale! Been wanting to participate via online shopping but thinking about the shipping fee and all that hassle stops me from doing so. Your son's so lucky!

  5. Wow, I want a kindle fire as well. I have never experienced black friday, it's not really that important here in the Philippines. Though, I guess my favorite aunt(who bought me a new laptop yeeey) frequents it so that she can give us stuff whenever she goes back home. :D

  7. Good to hear that your Black Friday shopping went fine.

    I've seen in the news a few days ago that violence struck Black Friday shoppers on some parts of the US.

    I hope we can have something like that here in the Philippines.
