My email has been full with pre-deals, sale previews, and early price drops for two weeks. I’m sure yours has too. So money was bound to get spent. i can only stand up to that kind of pressure for so long. My personal BLACK FRIDAY shopping spree started on Tuesday at Home Depot.
All of my shopping has been at either the big box home centers or Amazon. And I did NOT leave the house on Friday. Saturday and Sunday, but not Friday. I let Lady Ronn do that particular brand of madness.
On Tuesday I picked up a new 6-pc. set of Rigid battery powered tools and took advantage of the pick two freebies, I also grabbed a 3-1/2″ framing nail gun by Porter Cable. The nail gun is something that I’ve been waiting for a price drop on, the Rigid stuff… yeah, that was an impulse buy.
Then on Saturday, I went to Menards and took advantage of their R-15 insulation deal. They were offering a $9 rebate per roll, so that brings the price down to $2.99 for an 18-foot roll. I have a garage to insulate and I couldn’t pass that up. I had to go back for a second load today, and while I was there I picked up a heater for the garage. So now I have two new projects that I don’t have time to do.
I don’t want to even talk about the stuff I bought from Amazon, but they’ve been keeping my credit card busy all weekend. And I’ve been told that the Friday outing went well. Which I assume means money was spent. Sounds like we’ve done our part to keep the US economy rolling along.
So what’s on sale Cyber Monday?
