My Gray Thursday Escapades…and a Giveaway!!! {Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer & Keurig Platinum Brewer}

So which one of you braved the crowds and headed out for a little shopping on Thanksgiving Day (aka. Gray Thursday)???  ((this girl here slowly raises hand)) Yup!  I did what I told myself I wouldn't do!  I said I would not do any Black Friday (or Gray Thursday, for that matter) shopping unless it involved me being at home, on my couch with my laptop, browsing through Amazon's Black Friday Lightning Deals.

Well, I stuck to my guns on Thanksgiving Day; that is, until I saw news footage of all the deals going on at Wal-Mart.  I'd just been there that morning with my bestie, and we saw pallets and pallets of items wrapped in seran wrap.  The prices of the items were typed out in big black font and the prices on many of these toys were FANTASTIC!  Long story short, this self-proclaimed Target-snob decided at 11pm (I was already in my pj's) that she was heading out to Wal-Mart and nothing was going to stop her!  Not even the fact that she looked like one of the customers from People of Wal Mart.

So, off I went (all alone and much to my husband's dismay) to start scratching people off my Christmas Gift List.  Surprisingly, I did quite well.  The one thing I couldn't find so easily was the Shark Steam Mop that was advertised for $39.  I walked around the entire store looking for it and after 45 minutes of searching, I found it in the Customer Service counter, as it had been returned that same night.  And so I did the happy dance at the Customer Service register in Wal-Mart.  Yes I did!!!  I WON!!!!  I got the best deal!!!! (At least in MY eyes I did, since it was the only thing that I REALLY wanted for myself from the Wal Mart ad.)  I also scored other deals, but those were all toys and none were for me, so I guess those don't matter for purposes of my happy-dancing!   

What about you?  Did you score any amazing deals for the people on your list?  What about for yourself?  Well, if you are one of the many people who forgot to buy something for yourself during your Gray Thursday/ Black Friday battle shopping, or simply missed your bargain buy (like I almost did) you MUST sign up for this giveaway!
