Weekly Totals - Black Friday



Hey everyone! How was your Thanksgiving? Did you do any Black Friday shopping today? I am more of a cyber Monday kind of girl so I don't do the hustle and bustle of the busy crowds, but this year I have noticed some completely awesome Black Friday deals that I just couldn't pass up and what's even better? Most are online! I am almost done Christmas shopping! :)

First though I would like to share my Weekly Totals from Publix and Kroger. Last night we decorated our Christmas tree.

  1. I saw you linked your blog hop on my Blog Hops page. I came by to check it out. Sadly, we don't get these kinds of savings in South Africa. A coupon is a rarity and not always a real saving. I'm glad you had a blast! :)
