Well, it is the day after Thanksgiving and one of the first in many years that I did not go shopping. When looking at the ads yesterday, it seemed like there were not many deals. Add that to the fact that we were leaving early in the morning, and it was not worth getting up.
This afternoon I did stop at Office Max for a portable hard drive that I have been eying for awhile now. The flyer prices for the various stores have been the same since the summer. When I went to Office Max, there was a sign on the door that said that there is a shortage of portable/desktop hard drives because of the flooding in Thailand, so customers are limited to one per purchase and of course, the ones on sale were already gone. On top of that the prices are not going down, but going up because of the shortage. I was going to buy another portable hard drive that had less gigabytes and was more expensive, but then just decided to buy a 16GB flash drive instead.
I also ended up at the Dollar Tree today looking for containers to store games in at school. I did not find the containers, but found magnetic cookie sheets and some decorations for the Christmas cards that I think I am going to have my children make.
