How much did you spend on Black Friday and what did you get?

I just spent $150 on hair products alone and I feel like a complete idiot, but I really wanted them. Am I alone in this? Did anyone else spend too much? Please make me feel better TT_____TT I know this may be a touchy subject, but you don't have to reply.

I got:

33oz Oyin Handmade Hair Dew (2 of them!!)
32oz Curl Junkie Curl Rehab
16oz Miss Jessie's Curly Pudding
16oz Miss Jessie's Curly Meringue (FREE)

The price isn't even including the Denman brush and the Tangle Teezer I bought a few days ago (both totaled $40 in all).

It was totally worth it :glasses1:

Yeah, I'm sooo ready to big chop now.
TYPE 4 FINE/COARSE LOW POROSITY HIGH DENSITY
TRANSITIONED: Since Dec 23, 2010 (I think...)
BC DATE: July 23, 2013 (about 31 months)

    Nice!
    Please let me know how the Pura Body products turn out! I was this close buying it because of their BOGO sale. I was intrigued by all the foreign oils they use in their products. I've never used any of those oils (Mango butter, Cupuacu butter, Brazil nut oil, etc) so I wanted to test them out.

    i think the question should be "how much did you SAVE" rather than "how much did you spend," right?
    that's how i think about it. not only do i try to get some christmas gifts, i also keep a list of hair products and one or two items of clothing i really want but will not pay the asking price, then check it out on bf to see if it is now in my reach. with hair products i buy the staples that i won't be without. i'm going to use them, so i am saving and feel good about it.

    I actually started before black friday with curlmart and sheaterra organics. I got two luscious balanced cream moisturizers in the coconut cream scent from curlmart and argan oil from sheaterra. Then o black friday I ordered two Curl Junkie Repair me's from Curl Junkie. Then I ordered one 16oz deep conditioner and one 16oz luscious balanced cream moisturizer from Bee Mine. Then I ordered one Karens Body Beautiful Luscious Locks Hair Mask. I ordered the double agent butter and the she and matcha green tea butter from belle butters. I ordered the coconilla cupuacu body serum, the palm tapioca and the seven fold butter blend all from bask which I am still waiting to get. Then I placed an order with sage from two amla and olive heavy creams, two burdock root butter creams, one bask latte detangler and one cocoa bark deep conditioner. I probably spent around $350 or a little under that. I also ordered brown butter beauty babassu deep conditioner. I heard Lolakinkz talking about this one so I decided to try it. I also placed another order with sheaterra since they sent me a sample of their african black soap I loved it and ordered 4 bars of it along with their banana lippie and I orderedd their african rosehip seed face mask/deep pore cleanser but they were out of it so I got the banana and mongongo oil hair mask instead and it smells and feel delicious. anybody else spend too damn much???
