Time vs. Sale

At what point does the time spent become more important than the amount saved at a sale? Old Navy had their denim sale today and had adult jeans for $12, well as luck would have it, I really needed new jeans. So I thought if I got there early it might be a little crowded, but at least I could get what I needed. Well I found the jeans that I wanted and then waited in line for 1 1/2 hours to buy them! The lines stretched from the registers at the front on the store to the very back and even snaked around the back a bit. It was CRAZY. I also had some very interesting people around me, at least they helped to pass the time though. Oh well at least I now have some great new jeans...

I hope you bought more than 1 but no more than 3 HA HA :) I must have been there a little before you because I only waited in line for about 1/2 hour.

At least you have some great jeans. Yeah, not sure I would have done it though.

I went about 1:30 or so, and only waited 15 minutes. I was only behind one person but she was applying for credit and it was taking forever! Do you have the problem with Old Navy jeans being super cute except for the 4 inch gap in the back of the waist, or is it just me?
Sometimes, I'm not sure it is worth the savings or not!

I didn't even hear about this sale and I love Old Navy! Oh well, I was in Utah anyway. That's a really long time to wait in line though. I hope you didn't have your kids with you. That makes it oh so much longer!
