I've written before about how I detest both getting up early and waiting in long lines for things. Consequently, it came as quite a surprised when I agreed to go with a friend and her kids do do some Black Friday shopping this morning.
First, she picked me up at the bright and early hour of 10:45 a.m.
We headed to Kohl's armed with our coupons!! I used to shop there more years ago but I still go occasionally - and my thoughts this morning were that I would grab up one of those Kitchen Aid stand mixers that I saw in the Black Friday flyer. Yes indeed. I had my heart set on one, especially once I calculated the savings taking into account the $10 coupon plus the 15% off coupon plus the extra early bird 10% discount plus the $15 for every $50 spent dealy.
Here's the irony, as so eloquently explained in a comment from my cousin's wife: "Hmmmm, should come in handy w/all that cooking that u do ;-D"
Well, the cat is outta the bag regarding my non-cooking.
It was more of an early Christmas gift for MB even though it is far from his real gifts, to be detailed later. He can use it when he makes pizza and his pretzels on Christmas Eve.
Another thing that totally rocked was that my friend's daugher agreed to stay in line - and it was an extensive line- while we ran around and picked out our stuff. Please don't hate me for this ;-) I finally found the mixer after 15+ minutes waiting at customer service, because for some reason the folks at Kohl's decided to put that mixer in the middle of the aisle near the shoe department as opposed with the rest in the kitchen area - go figure!!! I arrived at the cash register just as she finished her transaction so I had zero wait time. Super awesome!!!
