Black Friday

Who goes out on Black Friday to get the deals?
 
I'm not one of the diehards that goes out on Thanksgiving night (which in my opinion is ridiculous that any store makes their employees come in) or at 4am.  But Mom and I do go out usually around 7am and still get some good early bird deals. 
 
This year, we were on our best behavior and didn't go too crazy. 
 
We went to the mall first which is always a smart decision.  Past 10am, I cannot take the mall.  It's just too crazy.  Mom told me this year I was getting old by not wanting to deal with it.  These are the places we went in the mall.
 
Belk - Random deals
Vineyard Vines - Buy 3, get 4th item free
Gap - 40% off what I got
J.Crew - 25% off the whole store
Lilly - just a good sale section
Ann Taylor Loft - 50% off the whole store
 
Then we went to other places that aren't nearly as hectic:
 
Jos A Bank - early bird specials before 1pm
Williams Sonoma - just had to return a couple of things but got a steal on steak knives
Bedside Manor - my favorite bedding and bath place ever
Michaels - got a bow made
Marshalls - no special deals that I saw
Home Goods - just wanted to show Mom
and eventually Wal-Mart later that afternoon to return some things.
 
We didn't get something at every store but did enjoy checking things out.  It's rare that Mom and I get to shop together so it's always a treat no matter at 7am or 3pm. 
 
Tell me your Black Friday routine or maybe you don't have one?!

My mom and I always go to the outlet stores, but I'm just like you. We get there around 7 or 8 and by 11, I'm ready to leave! There were definitely some great deals there this year, though!!

I don't have the patience for it. I stay home and decorate my house and tree instead. LOL!
I'm big in the day AFTER Christmas. Now, that's when the REAL deals are!

I only go to our one small mall (saks and neimans are the anchors) and just run in J Crew. You can always find a parking space so its a quick trip. My mom got stuff at talbots there and I got a few things at j crew! I'm impressed with your list!

I do not even try to deal with all the crazies. My friend convinced me to go to Hobby Lobby and TJ Maxx on Friday around noon and that was the extent of my Black Friday shopping. :)
