    No longer just one day of deals, so what did you buy Pubsters?

    On Monday, I got a Gibson Maestro electric guitar and all the basic supplies (amp, picks, case) for $50 and the Rocksmith 2014 game for $50 (normally 80 by itself) both from Best Buy

    Today, I got a Kinect for the Xbox 360 with the adapter cable and the Kinect adventures game for $25 from Gamestop

    Debating whether to get the Microsoft Surface RT tablet from Best Buy for $199.

    Not typically a big deal or coupon guy, but very excited about the tremendous discount deals I got and didn't have to wake up early or fight any crowds for them

    I didn't go to any store, but got a couple of Christmas albums from Amazon, 6th season of Big Bang Theory, a course on keeping fit while aging from The Great Courses and may yet buy a bowling ball.

    I do most of my Christmas shopping online, so my Black Friday excursions are more for the spirit of the season, rather than to actually die hard shopping. I never go anywhere near any of the crazy places like Best Buy, Walmart or Target. I usually go to Dillards, Belk and a couple of local shops.

    I did get a couple of gifts - much needed sweaters for my mom. She's lost so much weight and her old clothes are just falling off of her. Neither was on sale. Also found some cute sweaters for me….not on sale either….oh well, they are really cute :D 'tis the season to be broke ;)

    We bought a flat screen TV for the guest bedroom. Didn't need a TV but Black Friday gave us an opportunity to get rid of our last big, fat, 1990's TV. Got it by walking in hours after the big rush and asking the clerk. He had 4 left.

    Got a new 60 inch LED TV from the wife, had the pleasure of going and picking it up at 2:00 am due to the fact it wouldn't fit in her car. Yes she was shopping at 2:00 am with my mother, they are hardcore. :D

    Did all of my shopping from my computer. My best deal was a Dell Inspiron laptop for my wife (15.6" touchscreen, i3 intel core, 4 GB RAM, 500 GB HDD) for $349.99 with no tax and free shipping from Amazon. Regularly $467. It sold out in 5 seconds.
