Our Black Friday Bumper Bonanza Haul...

Oh yes it's Black Friday. The time just after Thanksgiving when, to celebrate, inexplicably there are MASSIVE savings to be made on consumer goods. We are consumers. We consume everything and we must buy everything. Especially if it is at a reduced price, and especially when it is BLACK FRIDAY.

Alright I know I'm being a pain. And I know that sarcasm is the lowest form of wit - and I am slightly sorry if you came here expecting me to list all our bargains.

Our Friday night routine generally involves a supermarket. This is because we need 'stuff' and also there is a danger time with the kids from 6.00pm - 8.00pm, basically they are tired and just create holy hell in the house. And let's face it there are only so many places you can take kids in a Friday night. Don't be jealous because my life is so awesome.

So, without further ado, here is our Black Friday haul.

* 1 x bottle of Cortebella Chianti Reserva £5 rolled back from £8
* 1 x bottle of Wolf Blass Shiraz £5 rolled back from £8
* 1 x bag of Smart Price Tortilla Chips 46p
* 1 x Mexican dip stacker £1.29
* 1 x Peppa Pig DVD (not pictured, we were stealthing it away for Alice for Crimbo)£3
* 1 x pack of multi coloured car-shaped erasers. (All the essentials) 50p

So there you have it. Our haul.

Repeat this 51 times a year, call it whatever colour you like. This is OUR Friday!


  1. All seems like essential stuff to me, crisps and dips and wine especially so!
    sarcasm is the best form of wit imo! x

    Hahahaa this is brilliant! Sounds like a fab Friday ;)

  3. Ha! Looks like a good haul to me! xx

  4. BOOM! I'd be all over that. :-)

  5. my kids wanted me to buy the black friday blue ray player but like you I just got the essentials: cider, nibbles and bread ;-)

  6. I thought the whole Black Friday thing was pretty ridiculous - love your alternative take!

  7. tortilla chips & Mexican dip - yum! I wish I had that for my Friday night.. there's always next week,,

  8. Dammit it woman, I wanted to see photos of tvs, game consoles and other expensive things along with pictures of black eyes, broken limbs and other Black Friday related injuries. However you can't go wrong with dips so I will give you that one ;) I refused to buy anything on Friday out of principle!
