As promised, following are some pics from our first-ever Black Friday experience. We are definitely NOT your typical "consumer-minded" folks. More than anything, we just went along for the fun of watching all the crazies come out before the sun's up just to fight over electronics and socks. But we managed to score a few cool things, while we were at it, too.
Thursday night, we set our alarm for 4:30 am, planning to meet up with our "crew" outside the Miller house at 4:45 am. Well, Shawn had to get up to go potty (I know, too much information) at 2:15 am and decided we should just get up and hit Best Buy - because maybe we'd get a shot at one of their laptop deals. Ha ha.
Next, it was off to Kohl's. We got there a little before 5:00 am. Here's part of our group waiting in the line that wrapped around the entire interior of the store:
We scored a set of Crayola markers for 2.99 at Kohl's. Big spenders, I know.
Next it was on to Fred Meyer for free coffee and donuts:
