Well we bought the new car, a nice dark blue Honda Odyssey minivan. I talked to a bunch of dealers and negotiated hard and I feel like we got a good price, it was well below invoice. It drives well and has SO MUCH ROOM. Oh also for you bleeding hearts, it has a special feature where it kicks out three cylinders when you are driving a certain way and a light comes one that says "ECO" and it gives it really good gas mileage.
I did brave the Black Friday crowd at Best Buy yesterday to get one special deal on a gift for my grandparents. Really it wasn't bad, they were super organized, had plenty in stock of their doorbuster products, and the line moved fast, only 15 minutes. ToysRUs on the other hand was madness, with an hour and half long check out line that blocked the entrance and the aisles....I walked in and straight out. This morning I went to Kmart for a doorbuster product my MIL really wanted and they didn't have any, told me they never came in, and refused to give me a raincheck. I walked out and vowed never to set foot in that store again...I HATE KMART.
Tomorrow when we get home we will start decorating for Christmas. Yay!
