The extent of my Black Friday shopping

It wasn’t really Black Friday shopping at all, actually! CVS’s Black Friday deals were running for three days…Thanksgiving Day, Friday, and Saturday. I loathe Black Friday crowds, so I was very pleased with the idea of shopping ON Thanksgiving Day. I was a bit nervous that there would be a whole lot of people there, but apparently everyone else was home cooking, as the parking lot was nearly empty.

CVS was advertising a bunch of items for free after Extra Care Bucks. They were out of a couple of advertised items, but I managed to snag all of this for nothing:

Actually, I had two $1 coupons, so that paid for the tax with a bit leftover. I could add up the total price of the items and boast that I saved X amount of dollars, but truth be told, I would never have bought all of that stuff at CVS if it wasn’t free. I’d never pay $8.99 for a tube of lip gloss(that’s the regular price), for example!

Still, I’m pretty pleased that I managed to get all of that for free, and I’m especially stoked about the makeup powder, because I was all but out of that.

Did you do any Black Friday shopping?

Yeah nice to see you bought Aussie products but I agree with AussieSaver. I've never seen them before here in Australia!

Nice to seem you bought some Australian products. Have never seen them over here myself, but they say they're Aussie ha ha!

Ah! Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving, and at least here in the US, stores offer ridiculously good prices to get people out to start their Christmas shopping. It works, because the stores are usually CRAZY on the day. I try to avoid it as much as possible!

What IS Black Friday? I got to your great blog through Low Impact Man's page and have been avidly reading down through your old posts. I'm in the UK, and I know we don't have anything like Black Friday here.

Oh cool! You're the first reader who's said they got here through Freecycle. ;) Welcome!

I will try to do a post about CVS in the coming week, but in the meantime, go to She has some good CVS and Walgreens tutorials, and each week she posts the best deals.
