SPOKANE, Wash. -- It's the final week of our special 2 On Your Side series. We've been tracking how much Black Friday can really save you. Here we are, the final weekend before Christmas. So if you put off your list (like a lot of us here at KREM,) will you pay for it big time? Here's the results:

1: We've followed an LG Blu Ray Player from Wal-Mart. Just $38 on Black Friday, $68 today. It spiked to $98, but has since fallen. Still no where near that steal of a price!

2: An Emerson HD TV 40" was just $198 on Black Friday. Today, you'll pay just under $330 for it.

3: Everyone needs a good pair of boots here in the Inland Northwest. We've tracked a pair from Macy's. Just under $100 on Black Friday. Today, expect to pay $150.

4. You would have saved big if you bought a Power Wheels Escalade at Toys R Us four weeks ago. It was $269.99. Last week, it shot up to $419. Today, it's going for around $350.

5: Finally, a warm, wool coat at Kohl's by Jennifer Lopez selling for $89.99 on Black Friday. Today it's $96.99. That's down $3 from last week.
 
The stats prove it. Black Friday shopping can really save you big. If we would have bought everything on our list on Black Friday, we would have saved over $300, opposed to shopping today! That could help a lot with covering everyone on your list. But hey, if sleeping in or more family time is the reason you nixed the Black Friday craze, we're understanding of that!
