Daily Diary: Anyone Else Happy The Shopping Madness Is Over?

This whole weekend knocked the you-know-what out of me. I mean – seriously. As a blogger, I felt it was MY DUTY to constantly update my posts with sales and websites. I think I had a migraine for 4 days straight. It’s just all too much.

And then there’s that feeling that you HAVE to take part in it. I only went to Toys R Us on Black Friday – and that was enough for me. But even when I got home, I kept thinking …. maybe I should go to Lord and Taylor, and Macy’s… and X. WHY? I don’t NEED anything. But apparently, I need it on sale.

I kept having to SHAKE off the feeling to participate. Did you get that feeling?

Today is veg-tastic. Now that Cyber Monday is behind me, I’m just going to go back to my normal routine.

I would LOVE to hear if anyone got a great deal this weekend? I did pretty good on Gap.com ONLINE, scored DS games at Toys R Us (buy 1 get 1) and bought Bill a bunch of stuff on this new site that I am OBSESSED with. It’s RIGHT up his alley! He is going to love me BIG TIME when he gets my present. 🙂

    Oh my goodness…so glad Black Friday is only once a year. My husband was so sweet and wanted to go with me this year, and boy did he get a rude awakening…poor guy. LOL But he stuck it out and we got a lot of great deals!! Over $1,000 worth of stuff for $350 😀 My man was impressed 😀 And on CyberMonday, I got two blouses from Ann Taylor Loft (both Christmas gifts) for $17 after taxes and free shipping!

    This comment is entering me again into the 2nd of 5 $100 CVS/pharmacy Gift Card giveaway 😀 Great deal guys…check out the post!
