my black friday...




This post may contain my affiliate link. For more information, please see my disclosure policy: Thanks! :)


My shopping list was probably different than most shoppers' today.
I went for.60/roll ribbon at Michael's:




.99 poinsetta plants at Lowes:

AND...my early Christmas present! I got the second to the last one at Lowes and felt like I won the jackpot. A portable air compressor/nailer! It was $60, and then I had a $10 coupon from the mail. We haven't decided on a house yet and we may rent for awhile, but I really can't wait to shoot the first nail.

All of my neighbors are putting Christmas up and it makes me a little sad that we're not (since we're moving in 3 WEEKS!!) I'm still going to pull out a few things, but I've got to remind myself that whatever I pull out, I'll have to pack up....
I hope you're having a wonderful weekend~

  2. Awww, I have been wanting that air compressor!!! Geez, how did I miss that deal?????

    I love my nail gun, but I have to use it with our large air compressor, luckily I have a really long hose that will let me take the nail gun in the house!
    I really want a compound miter saw for christmas, but since I have a regular miter saw i doubt Santa is going to oblige. One can dream though...LOL

  3. We moved at Christmas one year. I bought a small tree and decorations and used that for our family tree. When we moved, we gave the decorated tree away - no packing and the other person enjoyed a special treat!

  4. Great minds think alike! ;) I got both the .99 poinsettias AND the .60 ribbon too!! Great deals. Fun too...

  5. I didn't leave the house today because I stayed in watching The Godfather for the first time, but I wish I would've thought of those places, because I would've gone for that! So sad (but happy for you) about the compressor--I've been wanting one! Maybe I'll see if I can still salvage something tomorrow at Lowe's (I know, fat chance . . . .).

  6. Love the ribbon choice, and the nail gun to cool. I just hung my wreath on my door and added garland around my door and then of coarse added the large poinsetta's to the garland. Come and visit me sometime. ;)

  9. Oh, that's so hard to move right before the holidays. I totally understand. I hope you find a great home, soon, so you can start shooting those nails and sharing it all with us.

  12. Michael's and Home depot (for their 99 cent pointsettias) were the two stores I didn't make it to yesterday. Sigh, this week to Michael's at least- gotta. get. some. ribbon.

  13. Awesome! I would have went for the ribbon too. And that nailer looks amazing! I didn't even go out today, I am in a shopping slump. Now I am having second thoughts that I see all of the good deals...

    XOOX

  15. I know it is a bad time to move and I am sorry you can not decorate. I hope you will get settled quickly wherever you end up and be able to enjoy Christmas! Have a wonderful day!

  16. Your black Friday shopping looks a lot like mine... but I did not buy an air compressor... ha! Loved the ribbon I purchased at Micheal's... about 10 large rolls for under $20! Awesome! ~ kim

  17. We just moved too and I will not be putting up a Christmas tree. I will enjoy all the decorations online instead:)

    ReplyDelete
  18. We're in the same boat. We're moving on the 22nd! And all our decorations are in storage. So we'll just make due with kids construction-paper decorations until then!
    It's all about what you make of it!
    I wish I would have bought some ribbon at Michael's!

  19. Oooh, I love the ribbons, especially the polka dots! Have fun pulling out a few of your favorite decorations, friend! Will you be in a new home before Christmas?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Right there with ya, babe! I'm only pulling out the stockings, and promised the kids we'd get a small tree (but we're decorating it a little different than we traditionally do because I don't want to pull out the boxes of ornaments) Moving at Christmas time isn't my favorite thing. Ah well.

  21. Hello sweet Melissa - Your black Friday sounded like mine! I went to Walmart for toilet paper and Red Bull and came out with the cutest 25" white Christmas tree, and a few ornaments that I wasn't planning on. I couldn't believe the good deals and the lines weren't long either.

    Glad you got your gun!

    Blessings,
    Marie
