Black Friday ALL NIGHTER!

Oh.My.Goodness! It was INSANE! As I am driving to Sacha's at 10:30 pm I am thinking, we should not go to Disney store at midnight, we should just get up at 4am and go to wally world, this is crazy! Sacha was determined, we were going to Disney. We get to to the mall, pull up in the parking lot and FREAK OUT! The mall is completely packed! The parking lot is FULL. We start running in, thinking we are missing something good, for all those people to be there, it must be good! The entire mall is open... at midnight! CRAZY! It was the busiest I have ever seen it! It was so crazy! So we get in Disney at 12:10 and the line to check out is already wrapped all the way around the store. So we find some good deals, get our stuff, wait in line for 30 minutes and then make the decision that this just turned into an all night er. We stayed up all night! If you know Sacha and I very well, then you know we can be extreme opposite. Sacha is a chipper and bubbly person...even at 3 am! (Amy says this is her prime time-late at night) I on the other hand can tend to whine and complain and grumble. So I am grumbling, saying I didn't sign up for an all nighter, sacha even said at one point, ok we can just leave, but I said oh no, no that's ok. I just want to complain! ; ) Sacha is chatting with everyone in the 30 minute lines were in, helping people with there purchases, with there shopping and I am trying not to fall asleep and keel over. It was actually really funny looking back on it. I will admit, who would you rather be around, let's just say, I went shopping with the right person! Sacha and I are like sister's though, we catfight and get annoyed at each other, so that made it a little more interesting! We didn't leave the mall till 4ish, went to Walmart at 5 and met Amy, who just couldn't hack walmart and the crazies, so she took off and we met up with her at Target. By 9am we had spent all of our money and were so far beyond exhausted we could barely walk. Good times were had though, and I am sure we will do it again next year! I am still recovering from the sleep deprivation, I am not as young as I used to be!
Sacha is putting on her makeup at 12am and I am waiting outside the car telling her to hurry!

We are almost to the front of a very long line at the Disney store!

Here is Sacha going over an ad with someone who is in line in front of us! Notice how chipper she is!

Here she is wondering how she spent so much at Disney...we must stop and get everything out and add it up in the middle of the mall, surely oh surely they made a mistake, right?
Now we are in old nav and she is taking a picture of hoodies that maybe her mother in law might want to get the boys for christmas, cause you know she might check her email at 2am, call sach and say YES, I love them, get em!

Here I am...faking excitment!

Never a dull moment with Sacha!

I am fading fast!

Whataburger is a MUST at 4am!

Sacha is finally wearing out a little!

We were freaking out because there is a kid in there! At 4:30 am at Walmart!Um...can you say child abuse?

Watch out...she means buisness!

This is Walmart at 4:59,everyone is waiting for the skrink wrap to be ripped off the pallets and then the madness begins!

Amy and Sacha at Target, our last stop!

1st Post by Amy - Wrapping Paper!

Well hello - i decided to put in my 2 cents (well actually $3.49) :)

I am pretty much obsessed with Hobby Lobby to the point of thinking maybe i should get a job there !! haha! So my deal of the week is Hobby Lobby's wrapping paper. They have the giant bulk rolls (100 sq. feet) there that are regular priced in at $6.99 but this week they are 50% off so $3.49! The rolls are HUGE! They might could wrap all your gifts depending on how much you wrap. I also love the black/white scroll because you can use that year round - and they also had cute houndstooth paper that i might go back and get.

Also - i recommend you go to and get on their email list because every Saturday night at midnight they will send you the sales for the upcoming week as well as the 40% off coupon that you can print out (if there is one that week) - love it!

My beautiful header came from, it is an amazing website, go check it out.There are some great deals there! While your there check out her unbelievable Christmas cards!! They are a great price and you will not find any as unique and beautiful in stores or online!
(ok, somebody is going to have to show me how to make CLICKABLE links, what am I doing wrong!) : )

Black Friday!

UPDATE: Sacha and I are officialy out of control, we are def going to the disney store at midnight, then to her house to sleep for a few hours then Wally world at 5 am. She had the BRILLLIANT idea to take Tyler and Caleb's walky talky's with us so we can split up, divide and conquer kinda thing. Pictures to come....

Anyone want to get up early, say 5am and go shopping!! Sacha wants to go and maybe my friend Ann. Sacha is even talking about us going to the Disney store at midnight! WOAH! This is one of my favorite days of the year! I think its so fun and crazy to get up so early,push and shove for that must have item,and shop till you drop. I go every year. I even went the year before last 8 months pregnant by myself. I drug Amy one year but she hasn't gone since, I guess she wasn't a fan. It is fun, so so fun. I will post pictures after we get back and no, you cannot hand me money and a list and ask me to get stuff for you, I can barely keep up with my own stuff! You have to fight over it yourself! : )


Target is my all time favorite store! You can find the best clearance stuff there! They have a markdown schedule, so if you go the day they markdown you can find some great deals! I never buy anything full price there because I know they will be marking it down eventually. They have some good deals this week on educational board games, wireless mouse's, and much more. Target has some coupon's on their website for grocery item's, you can use there coupons combined with manufacturer coupons which can make things a really good deal. You can print target coupons on there website, on, or even at target and one of there gift registry computers. This week you there is the new coupon for $1 off fresh cauliflower or broccoli. It's on sale this week for 3/$4, making it $.34 cents after coupon!

The girls needed some new shoes for school, they are growing like crazy. I found these shoes for the girls for 3.74!

Limited Too

I went there today because my friend Ann gave me a 30% off coupon that came in the mail and everything in the store today was buy one get one free! I was mainly looking for webkinz, which I am sure all of you know what these are, but in case you don't, all the girls are into them. They are these stuffed animals that have codes and you can put the code that comes with them, onto there website and play with them online. I really don't get it completely but my girls wanted one for Christmas. I heard they had discontinued ones there for 6.00. They didn't have them that low but they did have some for 11.99. So I got 2 and with the buy one get one free and the 30% off it was 9.08. Which is a great deal because they were originally 16.50 each. On the way out I noticed some cute earrings and other little webkinz figurines that the girls wanted before. Kylie wants to get her ears pierced soon, so I got her 2 pairs of earrings, and 2 webkinz figurine's and spent 5.50! I asked when the sale ended, and of course, they are not sure! (whatever) : )

Victoria's Secret

They are having some awesome deal's in there beauty store right now! On top of that, they are having a secret santa giveaway...if you spend 10.00 in there store they will give you a secret santa giftcard and you bring it back in Dec 1st-24th to find out if it has 10, 50, 100, or 500 on it! They told me that they are giving them out until they run out. It does say on the back of mine that it is available only in select stores, so you may want to call first. I got the most awesome beauty gifts in there, but i can't tell you what they are because you may be the person I am giving them too! ; )

Here it is!

Ok, so alot of people, people that know me well, have told me I should start a bargain blog because I alway's find good deals everywhere I go. They practically fall in my lap! I thought it was a great time of year to start this, since everyone is out shopping for christmas. It is just silly to pay full price for stuff when you can find a great deal on it somewhere! This site will be a work in progress for awhile, I will get a blog header and make changes over the next few weeks. Stay tuned for some good deal's!
