What a weekend it was. We left shortly after lunch on Friday(no need to be one those people standing in line at 3 am to get things that probably won't even be there, store limits and what not) so we left shortly after lunch time and arrived around 4. No problems or hassle crossing the border at all and no line ups either. We thought we would be stuck at the border for hours before we got to cross, but only 10 minutes. We shopped that evening and then again all day Saturday, until 8pm, and then again on Sunday morning prior to heading home. Couldn't believe the deals we got and how much we bought. I thought we wouldn't be able to get everything in the car, but we did. So worth the trip this weekend. I did miss my boys, and husband, but was able to have a good time. Something I would do every year! And on the plus side of it all, when we were heaidng home and at the border the lady asked the usual stuff, and then asked how much we spent...well I claimed to have spent $440, and in reality it was like 1400. She told us to have a safe trip home! Couldn't believe it...no duty for me to pay, but cars in front of us and to the sides of us got pulled to the side...good thing we didn't!!! So for us as Canadians sometimes its worth the drive to the states. So how many of you went across the border and did you find it worth your while???
