My first stop was Kohls, which opened at midnight. I drove and got into line at 11:30 and was still fairly close to the front.

And on top of that there were $10 rebates for each of them!
3 Appliances @ $19.99= $59.97

Received $15 Kohls cash for future purchase
Sent $30 in rebates
= After Kohls cash and rebates $5.97!

Also, there were door busters on movies, and I picked up about 14 of them, ranging from $1.50 to $10 each.
I also did a little bit of shopping online; what a way to beat the crowds! There were some electronics at Best Buy and Sam's Club that I ordered, fantastic deals. Bath and Body works had their walflowers on sale for a great price, so I picked up some of those, and a few other stocking stuffers. With a coupon they
I would say it was worth loosing a little bit of my sleep time to get the deals, and finish up some holiday shopping!
