Where Local and Global Appetites Collide

Kitchen Appliances

Black Friday is one of the craziest shopping days of the year. Each year, stores compete with low prices to entice customers to come. This year, I woke up, along with other crazy people at 3 am, to get ready for stores that opened at 3 am, 4 am, and 5 am. After waiting in line for 2 hours to check out at Old Navy, I got to Target 20 minutes after they opened at 5 am. Basically, I woke up early and went to Target to get cheap kitchen appliances. They had great small appliances for college or apartments for $3. They had a coffeemaker, crock-pot, toaster, and sandwich maker for only $3. Sadly though, they were all GONE after only 20 minutes and I did not get anything for my kitchen. I then went to Wal-Mart to look at their $4 kitchen appliances, and again, they were gone within the hour.

I understand each store can only have so many of each item, but I guess that means people were going crazy over these cheap appliances.

Maybe next year I will have to get up even earlier to get ready to buy my appliances.
