Got up 5:15 and went to Staples
At Staples got 2 DVD burners, flash drive, blank DVDs, surge protector, 400GB drive, uninterruptable power supply and the free after rebate surge protector. Got out of there around 7:15 due to crazy line for getting stuff - it was all behind a counter for security. So you were on one line for getting stuff and then another to pay. Did end up convincing them to pay at the empty front registers though.
Next stop Walmart - got 2 Tides, and free mascara. Had 1.00 of coupon on one of the 1.99 Tides. Just missed the telescope and the free after rebate women's rebate razor.
Then Target - just got 1 game for Alan (the one I wanted Candyland was sold out alas). This is is a fishing game, he'll like it.
Then to the upscale mall - first stop coffee, then to Gymboree where I got a bunch of stuff for Alan for this year and next. Gap was next. Using a 35.00 gift card I did very well - I only paid 1.60 for my purchases. I got 3 pair of shorts at 1.97 each for Alan as well as some shirts and 1 full price sweater. (I love going to Gap/Gymboree there - same price as every other mall, less traffic!)
Went back to Staples to get extra DVD's.
Then off to Walmart, got pj's for myself and Mark, candlewarmer, tneck, track suit and gloves for Alan. Grabbed a bite at McDonalds, stopped at the consignment store (nothing interesting) came home, ordered from Gymboree and took a nap.
Went to my MILs for dinner and Alan's been very good with the potty today (same underware ALL day for a change!)
It was a good day and I avoided the major shopping strip (and mess) in Paramus. If I had to do it again, I'd just get up a little earlier (so I would have gotten the telescope!)
