How did you do yesterday? Black Friday Report.

Well, how did everyone do? After talking with a few friends, and talking with some shoppers, I heard that most people got what they wanted and did everything they needed to do.  I did go out for a short bit, from 8am to 9:30am. I walked right into Walmart, it was a ghost town. I didn't want to get any of the high end electronics, but they had PLENTY of computers, TV's., etc. I wanted to pick up the kids PJ's ( my kids needed them) and pick up gifts for my grandparents. Which I did. Overall, very little spent and very little time wasted.

I watched the video clips of shoppers on the news from yesterday. I can all understand getting a good bargain, but trying to fight or hurt people in the process I completely don't understand. :)

How did everyone else do? Do you go out at night? Did you get the deal of the century? Share your stories!

My Co-Worker's Story....had to share

I have to share what my co-worker does. For privacy purposes, I will call my co-worker Fred ( although it may be a man or a woman..for this post he/she is Fred). 

Fred applies for credit cards that give gift cards for reward points. Fred said that one card offered a $500 gift card if he/she purchased $2,500 in purchases. So, for a few months, everything he/she bought was on that credit card. He/she hit the $2,500, collected the gift card and paid off the card so no interest was built on it. Then, Fred got another offer for a $400 gift card if purchases are made up to a specific limit. So, Fred did that. Spent the purchase amount, paid it off, collected the gift card.

Now, if you have the discipline and income to do this, it's a great idea! Fred now has $900 in gift cards to use for Christmas shopping and it's basically free money ( as long as you don't collect any interest on the credit card). 

As of right now, due to my car breaking down, I have credit card debt again. It's not a lot of debt and I am doing everything I can to get it paid off. After it's paid off, I would like to do this same thing and see what kind of gift cards, or points I can collect.

Do you do this? How successful have you been? If you have any stories, please post in my comments section!

Black Friday...notes

Well, I didn't post any Black Friday deals and tonight, I went to Walmart and found several of the items they are advertising for Black Friday were available tonight. The TV and the Laptop were both available tonight.

So, why haven't I posted any Black Friday deals? Two reasons. One, I have gone Black Friday shopping the last few years and I have noticed that the shoppers are getting more rude and nasty every I am not going to deal with all that just to save money. Second, I have looked at the deals and I don't see anything that is such a super deal that I think it's worth waking up at the crack of dawn for.

Now this is not to say that if you plan on going out tomorrow, that I think you are wrong. Your not! If you have found a great deal, and you can deal with the crowds, then have fun and shop til you drop!!  Last year, I got some great deals for my kids Christmas gifts. This year I am already done getting my kids gifts due to deals I have posted here!!!

I hope you all have fun on Black Friday, but remember, you are buying STUFF!! People and their feelings are important too. Stuff will not bring eternal happiness..stuff brings temporary happiness.

Have FUN and Happy Thanksgiving!

Great deal on Lego's at Amazon!

$15.00 for a tub of Legos!! If you buy one of each,  you qualify with Free Super Shipping! Forget going out on black friday! Get these and your kids are all set!

Results of FreeTalk Phone Connector

Well, we bought the FreeTalk Phone connector for our Skype. We plugged it in. Three times we tried to use it and it connected, but as soon as the person on the other end answered the phone, the phone disconnected. We are dissappointed because we are trying to cut down on long distance bills without buying a cell phone monthly package.

I will keep you posted. We will end up returning the FreeTalk. :(

How do you save on phone bills?

My current AT&T went up a lot! So, my husband and I started looking into how to save on our phone bills.  We are going to try Free Talk. We hooked it up today. Free Talk uses Skype and your regular phone. You pay $30.00 for one year of unlimited Skype and $40.00 for the Free Talk ( One time purchase).  I paid less then the $40 because I used some Swagbucks to get an Amazon Gift Card. Skype allows me to make long distance phone calls for just the $30.00 per year.

So, we now will wait for a few months to see if my phone bill  goes down. My  husband and I are also researching internet connections. AT&T has raised my internet costs and I want to lower it again. So, I will start looking into other options.

Hey Readers....

Once again, I have been slacking! I haven't written this past week due to my crazy hectic schedule. In the last week, I haven't done any shopping. We are still on the 5 week menu plan I made. We did get free tickets to the model railroad show so today we did that. I have been being frugal by just working and making sure I pack a lunch and snacks.

The kids have used a few of their McDonald's Treat coupons but beyond that, we have been keeping the spending down. I have noticed that our phone bill and water bill have gone up. So, we are going to try FreeTalk with Skype to see if that will bring our expenses down. We have some Amazon credit, so we didn't pay much for the Free Talk. I will report back to whether it was worth it.

Today was Pick N Save Double Dazes but I didn't go. I didn't it after the last few trips.

Overall life has been busy and I will try to post some deals this week!
