Black Friday Madness

esurance_insurance_black_friday_cyber_mondayThanksgiving is now over and the time to start Christmas shopping has arrived. Ugh! When did that happen? I’ve never been so far behind on Christmas shopping since, like, eight or so years ago? I’m a planner. I like to plan ahead. I like having things done early, before all the madness of the holidays arrives. This year I’ve done nothing yet. No online purchases have been made, no store purchases for that matter either. I hate waiting until the last minute to do anything. I start feeling stressed and start getting anxiety over it. I know I have time to shop, but I hate waiting this late. The malls are going to be crazy from here on out. Not to mention traffic! Ugh! Traffic, crowds of people pushing and shoving. Tis the season, right?

I’m sitting here about to go out with my husband so he can Black Friday shop at Best Buy, Target, and maybe go to the outlets. (The time is currently almost 1am- stores in MA open at 1am for Black Friday) I’m undecided if I’m going to do any shopping. Victoria’s Secret seems like a disappointment this year. Bath & Body Works is doing a buy 3 get 3 free for the entire store, but I have a ton of candles… I might just wait until the $8 candle sale. Or is it $9 now? I might check out Ulta, but probably wouldn’t be buying any of their ‘Black Friday sales’ I’d probably just pop in to purchase other random makeup goodies… same goes for Sephora.

Honestly I shouldn’t be buying anything else for myself yet. I HAVE NO CHRISTMAS SHOPPING DONE! I wanted to buy this Teddy Blake handbag that was 55% off for their Black Friday sale… but I couldn’t justify spending that much money on myself when I don’t even have any of my Christmas shopping done. Sometimes I hate being a grown up. *pouts*

Every makeup company it seems is having some kind of Black Friday sale and it’s taking everything I have not to order something from a few of them. I did order the new Kylie Cosmetics holiday eyeshadow palette the other day. I was good. I had in my cart the eyeshadow palette, the bronze palette, the Kyliner in Snow, (the new holiday one) and the 4 pack of lipsticks, but in the end I ordered just the eyeshadow. I so would have bought all of those if I was ahead with my holiday shopping for everyone. It’s my own fault.

Still I’m debating… I may pop into a few stores to try and buy some presents for the ones on my list. If the stores aren’t too crazy, I’ll go in. If they are insane…. I’m staying away!!!

Are you guys taking advantage of any Black Friday sales? Or are you waiting until Cyber Monday instead? (I’ll probably partake in that) Let me know!

Thanks for reading! 🙂

  1. I LOVE Kylie Cosmetics! I wanted the mini mattes but they were out of stock. I feel like the universe is trying to keep me from spending money. I’m not sure if that’s good or bad. I’m going to do my Black Friday shopping online. Paying for shipping is much better than the pandemonium of going to the mall.

    • Oh no! Ugh, I hate that. Lol I know, it may be a good or bad thing that the universe is trying to keep you from spending money. I need that!! I hate big crowds of people, so when the holds us roll around I love to shop online instead of dealing with the stores and crowds. Black Friday wasn’t that bad at all this year. We stayed away from the malls, but went to stores that were more like strip mall type set ups. Other than Best Buy (for my husband being crazy… he waited until 2:30-3 and it died down) I went to Target (it was so empty- I guess it was a little more busier when they first opened) and Ulta said they only had 30 people outside waiting) we went to more stores as the night/ morning went on, but nothing was super crazy! So happy about that!!

  2. Hey there!

    I definitely took advantage of that Bath and Body buy 3 get 3 deal you mentioned! The amount of people at the mall I went to though was absolutely NUTS. I think I’m just waiting for Cyber Monday to see if there is anything I want for myself haha!

    Great, fun post and thanks for coming and liking my latest post of poetry as well! It’s a pleasure to meet you and will be following from now on! 🙂

    • I can imagine how crazy the mall must have been!! I didn’t go to the mall, just did outlet type stores. Luckily it wasn’t too bad! I’m hoping to find some good deals with Cyber Monday. 😊 Aw, thank you! Nice meeting you too. You have some great poetry! I’m going to follow you back! 😊
