The past few months have flown by in a blur. While it has mostly been good, however I have felt like I really have slipped in the organization department. So on Thanksgiving, since it is just the hubby, the kids and I, I started the day catching up a little. While the food cooked and the kids watched the parade I cleaned out my dining room of the treasures I had brought home during the thrifting season that had yet to find a home. While it is not perfect, it is definitely a better start.
With this done we were able to sit down to a RELAXNG meal, and I was mentally ready for the Christmas season to begin! While we cleaned up I put on the Christmas music and planned my Black Friday.
My husband volunteered to go into work on Friday (he starts work at 6am) and I saw a few things in the AC Moore sale flyer that I knew would be great gifts for my girls. One of my girls has wanted something that was in the special deal that started at 5am. So we woke up at 3:50am and left here at 5:15, him in his car and me in my truck. The mall was a lot less crowded than I thought it would be and the people were really nice and friendly ( both the shoppers and the store employees). I found everything that I wanted and was back home by 8am. We live 25 minutes from the mall so I was really happy with this. I got in and checked to see what kids where up and where they were at and brought in the stuff for the sleepy heads. Since I was
pretty tired and being lazy going to be super organized this season, I decided to wrap the gifts rather than just hide them. This also would mean if they were out in the open I didn’t need to worry who was looking at what.
Over the summer I went to a yard sale and picked this up for $5.00.
It was filled with this.
There is also ribbon, bows and tags in there!
So over the course of the day I brought things in and wrapped.
I now have all the presents that we currently home wrapped! Now just to keep up with it!
So did you go out yesterday? How were the crowds in your area?
