This is the first year I have braved the store crowds for Black Friday. It was crowded, busy and we had to wait in lines. But everyone we came in contact with was polite, helpful and said “excuse me” while trying to maneuver through the aisles. Overall it was a positive experience and we had a lot of fun. I would definitely do it again! We were able to get some of our Christmas shopping done, and on the cheap!
In addition to going out, we did a little online shopping at Amazon.com. I’ve been saving up the gift cards I’ve earned at Swagbucks to help pay for a few odds and ends we picked up over the holiday weekend. One thing I got is this new crockpot cookbook and it’s awesome! The recipes include ZERO canned soups and lots fresh herbs, fruits and veggies. Tonight I’m making the Baked Potato Soup. Yum!!!
