You might think, given that I love getting great deals, that Black Friday would be my favorite day of the year.
But you'd be wrong. Yes, I love getting great deals, but I hate crowds, lines, and searching for parking spots. So I'd rather skip the Black Friday sales. More for the rest of you!
But I did make quick stops to get a few deals at CVS and Walgreens, along with my regular trip to Publix. I was disappointed with the deals at the drug stores - seems like in years gone by that the deals were a lot better. Or maybe I've just become pickier.
I haven't shopped much at CVS and Walgreens this year, so I didn't have any Register Rewards or Extra Care Bucks to use to make the deals even sweeter. But I think I did okay.
