Booooooo on Babies R Us

On Black Friday of 2007 I was about 13 weeks pregnant. On Black Friday I got up at 4am and stood outside Babies R Us & got a buttload of diapers when the store opened. I think I got something like 1,000 diapers and spent $80. That stash actually lasted me til Black Friday of 2008. Then I did the same thing again (12 boxes at $10/box). That stash I'm still using.

I was so looking forward to Black Friday of 2009 where I hopefully would be stocked up til next year around this time. $10 a box of diapers, just like the previous two years, right????

Nooooooooooo. The Black Friday Babies/Toys R Us ads have been released. Their diaper bargains suck this year. $5 for 36 diapers. There are coupons out there for $2 off a package, so I suppose you can get 36 diapers for $3, but you can only print internet coupons 2x. So $6 for 72 diapers, yeah, it's a good deal. But if you can only buy 72 diapers, sorry, not worth waking up at 4am for. The wipes deal is the same as last year ($5 for a big box). That's a good deal. I don't recommend the sensitive ones though. Those suckers fall apart if you yank on them. The regular ones are just fine. Still...not sure if it's worth waking up that early for 72 diapers and a few boxes of wipes. We still have a ton of wipes.

Booooooo on Black Friday this year. Guess I'll just sleep in unless something really strikes my fancy. :(

Will you be my personal shopper? I really need to stop paying a premium for convenience...

If you will email me the link to the diaper coupons, I will be happy to print them and mail them to you! Between me, Narda and Sam here at work, we have access to a total of 6 computers. That would give you 12 coupons. Would that help??? We are happy to help you out! Just let me know....

Copy the coupon on the copier.

LA, you're sweet! I shall wait and see if we're going to move. It's probably a penny wise and a pound foolish if we have to move all those boxes two times. Thanks!

Melissa, I don't *think* internet coupons can be copied. They give you a different bar code each time.

Have you changed your mind on the house????!!!! You just let me know if you need the coups. And you are correct, printed coupons cannot be copied.
