I purchased Head & Shoulders shampoo regular and Head & Shoulders shampoo eucalyptus at Walgreens. Bare necessities. I included the two shampoo bottles because I paid the same price from a past Black Friday using a manufacture coupon. I paid $7 for the two bottles.

Tue Dec 4

I returned the SanDisk 128GB 3.0 USB flash memory stick back to Office Depot Office Max.

Black Fridays achieved the status quo years ago in my opinion. I shop on Black Fridays to purchase bare necessities which includes stocking up on bare necessities, to buy new durable goods, to upgrade existing durable goods, and to buy DVDs on my wish list. Black Fridays are good shopping days for appliances, clothes, new TVs, desktop parts, and towels. If I can wait for the Black Friday, then I wait.
