    @7SEVENJ9: I think that I might go out this weekend, but not early. I am not a morning person, so I’ll go late morning or so. I just want clothes, for the most part. What about you?

    I am thinking about hitting up some of the stores for good clothes deals.  Not like you can try anything on but I’ll buy it and return later if needed. 

    I am also trying to sort out my christmas list to see what I can buy now while its on sale.  I still need something for my dad, his dad, and some of the little kids. 

    If I had a ton of extra money I would love an DSLR, a PS3 for the hubby, and a new laptop!

    Hell no!! I hate crowds and I dont like shopping that much in general so Black Friday sounds like hell to me. Plus I’ll be in the middle of nowhere in Georgia (the closest Walmart is like 45 minutes) so there isn’t any Black Friday shopping going on anyways!

    I don’t know if I will. Its funny because as much as I am NOT a morning person, my mom and I always always go out on Black Friday either at like 4am, or sometimes the night before (our outlets open at 11pm on thanksgiving, so one year we went at like 12 and shopped until like 3, then went to dennys to wait for the mall to open at 5 haha). 

    The funny thing is that I don’t usually have all that much to buy, its just really fun to be out and part of the shopping crowd! This year in particular I can’t really think of anything I need to buy.

    We’ll be out and about!  We haven’t scoured all the ads yet, but we’ll definitely be at Best Buy at 2am, sigh.  It’s actually kind of festive once you finally get a cup of coffee all the way down…we’ll be with you in spirit!  We’ll be grabbing an iPod touch (there, or at apple.com if the price drops; Apple hasn’t released ads yet) for Peanut’s Christmas present.  We had that same discussion about “does it take out the romance of the present if you know what’s coming?” and decided that, since we share a bank account, it was in both of our best interests to save the money and spoil the surprise.

    Did you know the Nook worked with Overdrive, the download/borrow system most libraries use?  I am a devout Kindle user on my iPod, but boy does that make the Nook more appealing.

    We might also hit up Michaels and/or Lowes for a Christmas tree, depending on sale prices, and REI for some running and hiking gear.

    I was hoping to avoid it this year because I think it ruined the spirit of Christmas for me last year.  We were out from 10pm on Thursday until 7am on Friday and didn’t get any of the things we stood in line for.  We were at Old Navy 3 hours prior to store opening, were very close to the front of the line, and still didn’t manage to snag the free Wii game that they were giving out, how does that work??

    Anyway, my husband decided he wanted to get me a laptop, and he is not the type to try and hide it from me because he wants to make sure that is what I really want before he buys it.  We had also planned on buying each of the girls a Nintendo DS because they has been asking for them since before last Christmas.

    Lo and Behold, Walmart’s Black Friday ad comes out and they have the laptops for $199 and the DS’ for $89 (regular $149).  So there is no way I can avoid at least trying to snag them on Black Friday.  Especially since our normal Christmas budget is $150 on each other and $100 on each of our daughters, that really helps stay a little bit more within budget.  I also saw the frame set at Target for $12 which I am very interested in, and Walmart has a collage frame or a box of like 10 frames or something for $7, so I might just do that instead since Target will probably be sold out by the time I get there.

    Because my brother has to work on Thanksgiving, we’re celebrating Thanksgiving on Black Friday…. so I guess that means I won’t be going out.

    I usually don’t, but my mom is flying into town (today!) so we plan on actually shopping. I’m sure it’ll be a big mess.

    @7SEVENJ9: omg thats hilarious! We never actually stand in line bc we’re never going for big ticket items. usually we plan to get to stores about 30 minutes after they open when the “rush” is gone and the big ticket stuff is prob gone, but there is still lots of good deals to be had. I almost wish I wasn’t pretty much done shopping for my FI! lol
