So for the first time in my adult life I decided that I would brave Wal-Mart on Black Friday, the deals were just to much to pass up on the budget that I have. So I set me alarm and woke the boys up this morning at 4:30am and we went down. The parking lot was full and so I didn’t even bother to fight for a parking spot and parked in the first spot I found.

When we got into Wal-Mart we found a spot and got into line. I din’t realize that we were right in do the Rock BAnd Bundles that were $50, and that they had limited amounts of them. As it got close to the time to drop the rope the Wal-Mart employees were yelling to not push and be courteous of those around us. I hollered there are kids here to be careful. I told the boys that if they got trembled to drop whoever did it. We also designated a place in the event that we got separated. I told the boys that if we got a Rock Band we got one, but that isn’t why we were there.
They dropped the rope and we got pushed into the Rock Band throng, I was being pushed around and got mad and started screaming that there kids in there and to get off my kids. All the sudden there were 4 Wal-Mart employees there and said we got him and grabbed Mat and pulled him out of the throng. I then had to fight to find Mikhail as he had bolted into the throng. I was yelling to not step on the kids and I hear this yell, I got it mom. I looked down between the legs of the people and there was Mikhail with his Rock Band for the 360.
I grabbed him and with the help of some employees got him out of the throng and then I planted them in an asile by an employee and went to grab the movies that I was there for. As I was heading back to the boys I felt a tug on my purse and looked down and there was Mikhail but no Mat. I asked him where his brother was and he told me he left him where I left him. I got back there as fast as I could to find no Mat. I started asking around and was told that he headed back towards electronics.
I knew that there was no way that I was going to find him in that mess so I asked an employee for help. Luckily for me it was a manager and he immediately called a code Adam and had the people at the doors on alert. After about 10 minutes I remembered that I had told the boys where to go if we got separated. I told this to the manager and he had someone go and check and sure enough there was Mat with the Rock Band.
So now Mat hates Wal-Mart and Black Friday, he hates it so much that when Grandpa had to run to Lowes Mat refused to go. He loves to go to Lowes with Grandpa.
I did score however of Mike’s Christmas and so the objective was met.

    I was a little upset with my walmart because they let people go in at midnight and get all the good movies but they couldn't pay for them until 5 so when I got there at 4:30 the cool 9 dollar movies like GI Joe and Star Trek were already taken..didn't think that was very fair. (So I got on and got myself a GI Joe for 9 bucks and walmart didnt get my

    How very scary Heather. I also went to Walmart this morning but mine is open 24 hours so my experience was similar to ladystorm's with hundreds of people there since midnight or more who grabbed the goodies and held them until 5am. I did manage to get quite a good deal on $2 DVDs a 40in HD tv and a new computer too. I am glad my walmart didn't have the problems yours did though.

    Heather, that had to have scared you to death. It was really good that your son remembered to go to the designated spot. I can't imagine taking my kids shopping on Black Friday, it is hard enough with them on a regular shopping day.

    I have only gone shopping once on Black Friday. It wasn't too bad. I did however stay away from Walmart. I have heard too many horror stories. The deals that year were not that grand and definitely didn't warrant me climbing out of bed and being at a store at 4am.

    Glad to hear that you guys did get the deals you were looking for!!!
