My Sears $200 Shopping Challenge – Black Friday!!

We went mall shopping this weekend, I generally enjoy mall shopping, as long as I have my stroller. We wanted to go to Sears for many reasons, I knew they have the large LED colored outdoor lights that I’ve been wanting.I also wanted to challenge myself and see how many gifts I could get for just $50.00!

I found so many great gift ideas all around the store but my biggest and best finds were in the tool isle. There were rows and rows of Craftsman tools all under $20.00. I found so many great deals for just $9.99. Just check out these deals!

Toolbox: $9.99, Craftsman Lifetime Warranty Screwdriver Set: $9.99 Craftsman EvolvWrench Set in both standard and metric: $9.99, Craftsman Flip Out Knifes (two set) $9.99, Eternity For Men $10.00. Sales tax in Oregon = $0.00. Final cost: $50.00!

I also found some other great deals that I can’t wait to share with you in gearing up for Black Friday. I really hope to see a few more electronics on sale as we go into Black Friday. More specifically a 32′ flat screen TV for my daughter. Right now Sears has a great deal on a 22′ just $169.99. I also hope to find some clothing items on sale during my Black Friday shopping. There’s some killer Kardashian dresses I’d love to get my hands on, and also some Land’s End sweaters for the women in my life. I’m hoping to finish out shopping shortly after Black Friday but am already finding there are some great deals and sales already in the store and online.

Were you impressed with my $50.00 finds? Don’t your men just love Craftsman as much as mine does? I’ll fill his stocking with just $20!! What are you most looking forward to as we move into Black Friday madness?

I am a compensated brand ambassador for Sears, although we’re already shopping and sharing our favorite retailer my paid relationship with Sears won’t have an effect on what I say here.
