I know most stores have been decorated for the upcoming Christmas shopping season for at least a month but are you ready to shop?

I braved the crowds and headed out this morning. Surprisingly the stores I visited wasn't really that crowded. Of the stores I was at, Best Buy was the worse.

I went to the District Attorney's auto auction where they were selling off seized vehicles.
Watched a couple of them sell for way more than they were worth. Hmmmm.
Almost bid on a couple, but let them go.
I don't think this qualified as a "Black Friday" sale though.

I hit the stores again this morning at 5:30. Not a lot of people out, they must have gotten everything done yesterday.

I finally broke down and took advantage of Wal-marts black Friday special on laptops. I bought the HP 17.3" 3g ram, 320GB HD version for $398. So far it has exceeded my expectations and was well worth the dough. This is my 1st laptop, and the 1st computer that I've bought in more than 8 yrs.

Went VERY early Fri AM, (Like 12:30 after I got off work at Midnight, didn't take long to spend the holiday pay! )

Sears was not crowded at all, (They opened at 7 PM thanksgiving day.) Had 4 or 5 sales people all to myself. Drove by KMart on the way home, just were not very many people out on the roads or cars in the lots, I'd think they lost money paying all those sales people to come in and sell stuff at really low prices.
Really only bought one thing, It wasn't the best deal out there, but didn't think I'd be early enough for the limited amounts of items on sale at other locations.

Almost bought one of the GearWrench sets at Sears, couldn't decide which set or if I wanted the MaxAccess sockets. Anybody used either? I do have some of the offset metric GearWrench reversible wrenches and like them, they now have them with no offset and you turn the wrench over to change directions, I'd think that may be a stronger wrench, but more hassle to use, more prone to skinned knuckles and I think I'd miss the offset head.

Contrary to all the news stories, I don't think sales were all that good, just not enough people out that I saw Fri early AM or Sat/Sun while I was out and about.
