    No way! Never have and I don't think that this is my year to start. Too many horror stories of ppl being trampled! Scares me! lol

    I am afraid of the trampling as well... but I really need to get some stuff taken care of (i.e. furniture that I have been eyeing at this particular store).... I think I may go out but it sure won't be at the crack of dawn!

    Black Friday shopping has been a tradition for my sisters and I since we graduated college!  We would always go home for Thanksgiving, so we normally would get up  early and go to the Wal-Mart in the next town and shop.  It's kinda like a class reunion in the Wal-Mart because we would see old classmates that we may not have seen in years.  Since all three of us will be here in Houston this year, we may meet up or my twin and I may go it alone (we usually call our older sister on the phone and we talk the whole time we're shopping).  FI wants a TV/DVD for the bedroom (one of those compromises I'm doing for marriage sake), so we'll see if any will be part of any Black Friday specials.  Other than that, we'll probably just do some shopping, have breakfast at I-Hop, then go back home and nap.

    FI has never been shopping with my twin and I, so should I warn him that it can become an all-day event???!! LOL!!

    Yup the FI and I will try it for the 1st time EVER. There is a 40in TV we want, Some labtops for the kids (they are so spoiled) Mostly for electronics. We shall see how that goes. If they "try" me I will have to........walk away, I have a daughter now so I gota think about her (but the old Crystal would get wit em). BUT yeah Imlooking forward to it.

    We plan to go out! We are going to see if we can get my wedding band on a black friday deal. We are also looking for a tv and I always go to old navy cause they have the best deals like $7 jeans for my oldest son.

    FI talked me into going last year and it was actually fun. We weren't super competitive...didn't run anyone over and still got GREAT deals on a few things. We plan to go again this year. It's the only time of year that he will shop with me (excluding groceries) so I HAVE to go!

    Yes, yes and yes. My sisters and two of my cousins camp out last year in front of the Target where we live. We were the first ones there. We got in to the store got tv's, dvd players, pajamas and I got my gps. Yes indeed I am in the building. I don't believe in paying full price and I need a video cam. One of my daughters dances for the Washington Wizards JR dance squad and I need to get those memories on film.

    Probably not, but if I do go...it will be later in the day when the early birds are done. The deals are still pretty good, and I'd rather sleep in.

    Oh Hecks yes I will be out there with bells on. Literally! My sister and I go every year and we have a ball. I have gotten everything I wanted every time we went and then some. People can tell in my face that I dont play and not to mess with me. It is so much fun. My sister and I do lunch/brunch afterwards and then I go home and sleep until I feel refreshed. I love a deal and I am already starting to stake out my spots for this year I am ready!

    Is it really that bad out there? Like I said, it was painless and virtually effortless for us last year. We stood in line for a little minute, but it wasn't that long. Maybe we were lucky. I always thought the horror stories were exaggerations. We didn't wake up early cause we actually weren't even asleep yet last year...we went out with friends and were just getting home so we decided to give it a shot. Worst thing that happened was I ended up with a little cold.

    Nope!!! NO WAY, NO HOW!!

    I pick ONE day and do it all.  I'm a BIG fan of Amazon too.  If I don't get it then, it doesn't make it under the tree

    Absolutely not.  I won't be surprised if the hubby goes out for some sort of deal on a techy item.  I just prefer to be calm and at peace when I am spending my money.
