It was rumored that our local Ace Hardware was going to offer a snowblower for Black Friday for $250. That’s not a bad price at all. We’ve been wanting to get one ever since we moved to this snowy area (250+ inches of snow/winter). But, we never splurged to get this nice back-saving tool.
What it boils down to this year is that we do not have any cash and we probably won’t until near mid-December. Sort of a bummer, but it must be for a reason. I’m very glad I haven’t been tempted to put purchases on the credit card, since I have plenty of available credit at the moment. That is an improvement over previous years and something positive to focus on.
I did look around at other Black Friday flyers, but nothing really interested me. There were a few deals on LCD TV’s that made me look twice, but I am pretty picky when it comes to getting a TV. Probably most of those deals are on sub-par models. If we do buy one (and I’ve been managing the urge quite well lately), I want it to be one that we will be really happy with.
So, today will be a fairly quiet day for us and we’ll probably spend the day moving things in the areas where our home repair will be made. I’m getting more excited for our repair as each day passes 🙂
