How many of you got up early this morning and braved the crowds to nab some bargains?! My hubby and I did! Our local YMCA offered a service to members where you could drop off your kids from 5m-12 noon for free so you could go shop. You better believe we took advantage of that!
I managed to spend a whopping $25 at the mall. I know, how pathetic is that?! Hubby spent considerably more, but that was for birthday and Christmas pressies. We then went to Joann's and that's where I really had fun. When there's 60% off quilting/cutting instruments, a girl goes kinda crazy!
I must say, walking around a busy mall at 5am when it's still dark outside is a rather surreal experience! It was nice to do it with hubby this year as other years one of has stayed home with the kids. We were also to have a nice breakfast together at I-Hop. It turned out to be a wonderful date, even if it got light as the date progressed rather than getting dark like our usual night time dates!
And how did the kids do? Great! They were the only ones there for 3 hours - the other parents didn't take their kids until 8.30. Waste of valuable babysitting time if you ask me!
Did you snag any good bargains at 5am?!!
