Anyone doing Black Friday?

I used to pick one store (like Express) and go get the free gift, but the last few years I've done some bargain hunting online from the safety of my own home. People are crazy!

If you're going--what's your game plan??

If you're hitting the old Internet--what stores look good??

    My plan is to hit the internet, but I really don't have a game plan, just hope what I already plan to purchase is on sale. I know Apple does a black friday special online, so anyone that wants an ipod you can usually get at least 10 bucks off.

    I'm thinking about trying to go to Macy's, but I think if I wait until late friday afternoon or evening that the crowds will have died down. I really need to get a suitcase and get going on my Christmas shopping

    Honestly, never done Black Friday.  No appeal to me and the chaos is amusing to watch, but I don't like being in it.  But I will say from the years I worked at Home Depot, if you need to get something for FI, brother, dad, etc from a hardware store, good day to go!  I went to Lowes a few years ago to get a Shop Vac for FI and they had plenty of them and the place was slow!

    Yeah, I'm debating swinging by Home Depot before I have to go into work for my half day on Friday to get a present for FI.

    Ou!  Good call, Jolene!  I need to go to home depot and get my sleigh! 

    I am one of those nuts that do the 4am shopping thing!  Never really have a game plan...I just like to go and watch the crazies.

    I'm going to Portland this year and my Mom and SIL like to do it - Michael's and Joann's especially. Amusingly, the only things I've purchased the times I've gone with them are things for myself! I haven't heard back from SIL if we're doing it this year or not but the guys aren't, apparently they're going fishing.

    We are both going. We are probably going to wait to go until about 8 am. I'm not a big fan of getting up really early and waiting in line.

    I have gone the last 2 years and both times have been really lucky with getting some good deals.

    Luckily I have the majority of my shopping done.  Although we are going Friday afternoon-evening to finish up.

    We did the Outlet Stores up North last year.
    We started around 11pm  on Thursday and got home around 3am. It was fun but we were shopping for ourselves since we finish our Christmas shopping by September.
