Black Friday....the story

Well I already mentioned I was heading to Vancouver, WA for Turkey Day and I was going to go with my bro to some stores for BF, there was also no way in Hell I was going to go to Portland this year (too much of a hassle 2 years ago, CC lines took me over an hr to get in, and an hr to get out)
So got up at 4:30, wife and bro jumped into the car, I chugged a Monster as I navigated 30 mins of nasty fog covered freeway and back streets to GI Joes...that line was 150 ppl deep. Screw this, so we headed to Fred Meyer just up the street. Line was small, I got in and hit the electronics with them in tow, 20% off all Electronics and some cheap dvds were the goals. Wife got me Saints Row 2 for X-mas, I debated between this and Resistance 2 (I didnt finished the first one and the demo didn't make me go nuts, and Cheapy was raving about Saints Row 2, although I considered returning it and snagging LBP)
I snagged 2x 2gb SD cards, while the wife grabbed 2x Colby Digital Picture Frames for gifts. I also grabbed Casino Royale and my brother got a few other movies. I considered getting some Wii points or another game, but I too poor right now to throw around money like I own it.
Total here at FM
$47 Saints Row 2
$29 2x Colby digital picture frames=$54
2x 2 GB sd cards $7 a piece,
Casino Royale dvd $6.50
Then it was off to GI Joes where my brother spent about 20 mins looking at coats, we then decided to head to the mall. We stopped in at Macy's where it was pretty quiet, while my wife thought about buying the $50 Luggage set they had on sale with our left over $150 in Wedding GC's I snagged a Black and Decker Toaster Overn for $20 using the GC, its normally $50. We wandered around the Mall and my brother went to Big 5 and bought a coat there instead.
Black and Decker Toaster Overn for $20 using the GC
Last 2 stops on the way home. One was Target and it was bad!!!. Everything was gone in the electronics that were on sale and the lines and parking lot were choked. I was hoping to get a few dvd sets but the store pissed me off and I left.
We hit the Fred Meyer next to our house for some free donuts and coffee and I got a few cheaper ps2 games as they were 1/2 off and most of the games were $20 or less, I grabbed them for the Salvation Army Giving Tree thing were doing
Sonic Mega Collection ps2 $10
Ace Combat 5 ps2$10
Total here for me $20
Then we went back to my parents house at around 7am, where I went back to bed for a few hours got up, had breakfast, biscuits and gravy rock my world!!! Then I drove 3 hrs home and wondered if I should have bit on a few of the Amazon deals instead.
So I spent
Not too bad considering last year I spent like $75 at GS and the year before I spent $100. BTW i still haven't found a job yet...If I decide in the next week or so I dont want Saints Row 2 Ill take it back and get something else.
