MESQUITE, TX (WDAZ-TV) - Imagine spending the next week living in a tent in a shopping center parking lot.

Windy Lawrence is doing it for six days, just to save money.

The north Texas woman pitched a tent in a Best Buy parking lot on Sunday, hoping to be first in line when the store opens at midnight on Black Friday.

Lawrence, who is staying in the tent with her mother and young daughter, says that last year they came and didn't get anything they wanted, so they decided to come early this year so they can be sure to be the first ones to get in the door.

Lawrence has food, water, sleeping bags and a heater in the tent.

Best Buy representatives say they've never seen anyone camping out this early.
