    I can hardly wait until Thursday morning to go through all of the sales papers.

    Tell me what you are shopping for and what I shouldn't miss out on!

    I'm pretty much done with my shopping. Always have gotten it done real early, don't like the crowds. I think I have only gone out of Black Friday once or twice for a specific item I wanted to get the kids.

    I'm with you on that. I hate crowds too . Bad thing for me is I'm the only child so when my mom wants to come up for Thanksgiving ,I have to go. I most years have what I want to get for my family done and over with and use blk friday with my mom to make sure I get what I need and not what they think I would like. Some places are crazy. Wal-mart I will not go near at all! No way! Hope you get/find what you want Tammy and I will update you this week on how the eggs are.

    I have to work at Walmart black Frigay only we cant call it Black Friday at work anymore. It's the Event. Dumb huh. Anyway I dont know about all Walmarts but ours with the exception of electronics which starts at 5 am all the rest goes on sale at midnight. They are trying to get the crowds down so that at 5 am it isnt such mayham.

    Going at an unholy hour to Target. They have a TV that's normally above $1000 for $400ish. DH already scoped it out and made up his mind. Never have done the early morning rush before.

    Quote:If you want one of those TV's you better get to that store at least an hour ahead of time to get in line for the door...else you may go home emptyhanded. The larger deeply discounted items like that are the first to go, and it's a mad rush to even get to them through the isle and crowd of people trying to snatch. These sales are not a pretty thing. IF I go this year...I'm thinking of wearing body armor [​IMG]
