Black Friday shopping

Mr. Perfect and I had a fun time shopping on Black Friday this year. We took pictures and everything, and I forgot to blog about it, so this post for "Activities of Shopping Past".

We don't normally shop on Black Friday (you know, the Friday after Thanksgiving -- the biggest shopping day of the year in America). Mostly, we've just holed up in our house and been snarky about other people braving the crowds and craziness.

This year, we actually found a few things we really, really wanted that were only available for amazing deals on Black Friday. Plus, we needed to cancel our then internet service before they charged us for another month. So out into the dreaded insanity we went.

First stop was the CAL Ranch store for a double-burner camp chef. We have a great dutch oven from our wedding, we love to camp, and we love to cook good food while we camp. It was inevitable that at some point in time we would buy a camp chef. And they had one we wanted at a good price.

It was a really big box. Most Happy Girl stood in the check-out line while Mr. Perfect scouted out other deals, like a new snow shovel.

Here's the one we bought. It works great.

We also stopped by R.C. Willey's to price freezers (which we are still looking for)...

...and check out the sofas.

We did contemplate a new Blu-ray player because the one we currently have was purchased before the last ice age (a.k.a. before we got married) and takes forever to load. We didn't buy one, but did have a fun time sitting on sofas.

Last stop (no picture, sorry) was the cable company to cancel the internet service. Then it was home. No blood was spilled. No slapping fights over iPods at ridiculous prices. Just a couple of jun stops. This is my idea of shopping on Black Friday.
