The first things we got were from Amazon's pre-Black Friday sale. (pictures courtesy of Amazon site)
InSinkErator Evolution Compact 3/4 HP Garbage disposal: Nate's been pining for a good garbage disposer for awhile and with the Pre-Thanksgiving planned, we were not looking forward to making all that food without a disposal and Amazon had the exact disposal that Nate wanted at a killer price! With our Amazon Prime account, we had it before the party and we were able to install it just in time (stay tuned for how we installed it)
Total Savings: 51 % (P.S. it is still on sale!)
Cheetah Articulating Full Motion Dual Arm TV Mount: A TV mount has been on our list for a really long time. I like to cook in the kitchen and I wanted to get one that I could move the TV so that I could watch something while I cooked. Since we have a 42" TV, it was looking like we would have to shell out about $200 to get a mount that would have the motion we were looking for. Thanks to Amazon, this was not the case. I couldn't believe the sale they were having on TV mounts. Small TV mounts normally $100 were being sold for $14. I scoured the site until I found the mount that we wanted and luckily it was also on sale... really on sale. Yay for not having to pay $200!
Total Savings: 77% (P.S. it isn't on as good of a sale but it is on sale still)
The next place we did not have to go to was Lowe's. We were able to order our stuff online and pick it up later :). Pics courtesy of Lowe's website
Table Saw: Nate's Craigslist table saw bit the dust last week and so we picked up a new one. I was trying to get this for Nate's Bday next week, but he saw it in the flyer and wanted to make sure I got it, so it became an early birthday present.
Total Savings: 53% (It is on sale at this price until Monday)
Total Savings: 28 %
Total Savings: 40 % (P.S. it is still at 30 % off)

We ended up saving more than we spent! Now we have to install all these things!
