This year marked the first Black Friday on which I've ventured out and braved the crowds to snag some bargains. It ended up being fun despite the long lines, and when the bottom of my receipt from Kohls read "You saved: $400," I began to see why so many people find it worthwhile to shop the day after Thanksgiving.
Among other things, Nathan and I found a much-needed new set of sheets marked down from $80 to $19.99.
They are flannel, and they are warm and cozy, and they bring new meaning to the phrase "comfort and joy."
[Having a holiday was so nice. I wish Thanksgiving break extended until, oh, I don't know, June.]
