woo-hoo!! i worked my plan and my plan worked out for me!! i got up at 4:45, dressed, grabbed some coffee and i was out the door before 5am!! my first stop was Sports Authority. in the newspaper ads yesterday, big c saw the skateboard he wanted. it was only $24.99!!! way better than the $75 i would have paid somewhere else. and for the first 100 people they were giving discount cards from $10-$100! i was the first person in line. really there were only 8 people in line when they opened the door. still, good for me! the bad news was they didn't have the one he wanted. BUT i got a better one for the same price! plus with the 10 bucks off it was only $14.99!!!!
got out of there and headed to target. while i was driving i was chatting with my friend jennifer. she was standing in line at circuit city to get a video recorder for her daughter. poor thing. she waited in line for over an hour and they were gone when she got in the store. that stinks. so i get to target and the line is around the building. but there are only 3 minutes until 6:00. by the time i got to the end of the line it was moving and the people who were not standing in line had to wait until the line got into the building!! haha on them! i grabbed a cart and headed to electronics! (with everyone else!) i was hoping to get the digital camera i had my eye on. and some of those people were making me nuts. i mean come on if you are going to get up at 5am, you need to be prepared to move your butt!! they were walking soooo sloooowww. it was a mad house over there. i asked an employee if there was a line or should i take a number or what. he said he had no idea what was going on. i asked a lady in front of me if she was in line. she was hoping to get a gameboy ds. when the clerk handed her the gameboy i asked her if she would ask him for a camera. she was not happy about it but she did get one for me! so yipee! i have a camera again!! that was what i wanted most but i thought i would check out what was going on in the toy dept. on the way over i saw 1000 count sheets for $19.99!! picked up some of those. and all the new release DVD's were on for $14. i got ratatouille. such a cute movie. and they had a sweeper, the pick up stick, for $10. i got that for me!
i was not impressed with the toy dept. all of the games they had on sale, i already have. and they only had one lego set on sale. i didn't see the batter-batter baseball that monkey wanted. i actually walked away with NO TOYS!! i'll be shopping on amazon today! i got to the register and there were 4 or 5 with no one in line!! i checked right out! i was home at 6:25. but both of the boys were up watching tv. so i will have to be sneaky about the skateboard.
all in all i am very pleased. it was very well worth it to me to get up and go shopping. hope everyone was a successful as i was!
now it's time to talk CHRISTMAS!!! yipee!!
