I don't think I have ever gotten up at 2:00am to be at a store at 3:00am..and to be honest I don't think I will br getting up that early this year either...First of all it's really early in \the morning to be dealing with crowds..and the way the crowds have been so out of control even to the point where people have been knocked down, dragged and even killed....I WILL NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT SUBJECTING MYSELF TO THAT ABUSE...for all of you that have intentions of brazing that crowd....good luck and be safe....

I am going to shop online if I have money left. I wanted to go shopping at walmart or khols. But,since I am doing all these baskets I can shop online for gifts. I do think we should go bac to deals before Christmas to do some shopping or too the Christmas tree shop. I still want to go there.

You know I want to hit the Chrismas tree place so bad. I am bidding on warming pot that they have for cheap. Since we will go I won't bid anymore.

Actually, on black Friday I will be at my brother's house. After a leisurely breakfast we will probably hit the antique stores and thrift shops. No crowds there and we have a wonderful time visiting with each other while we browse. There is nothing so special or precious on black Friday to cause me to have to deal with that kind of ruckus.

I really don't have any interest in getting up in the middle of the night to shop. I am one female who dearly hates to shop. I am one of those when my jeans wear out, I'll go into the store and get another pair of jeans. It's never been anything I like to do like most females. However with the upcoming holidays and parties, I need to find my way to a store and get a couple of real nice outfits. I've seen on tv various crowds that get out of control and it might not be safe when the stores actually open on black Friday.

I don't know about this year, but last year I sent to the mall near my place at about 5 AM (really dislike the early hours and that I had about 3 hours of sleep...) and didn't really get anything. I mean, Christmas sales are just as good as Black Fridays in a way...but I guess it just depends on the merchandise, too :(

well you were a brave one...But once you joined the crowd and didn't even get anything.wow..there would be no way in the world that I would get up that early ,,,get out there in that crowd and come home with nothing...even if i had to purchase something I had to return another time...I would have come home with a bag.....LOL

Oh dear! Oh dear! This is the reason why we are not allowed to take an off from our call center job during this day. We expect a lot of calls from US customers ^_^ Happy shopping! =)
