Already reading archived Black Friday forums.


Me too! I’m desperate for all the threads/conversations to start back up. I don’t know what it was about June that triggered it but I’m in full holiday brainstorming mode already.

Purchased my first gift off the Walmart clearance rack yesterday! Hoping for some Prime Day magic as well!

I love Christmas in July!  It's just enough to tide me over till November :).

 

I'm looking forward to what Prime Day offers this year too. AND, I've already revamped and saved the Secret Santa thread starter, in case I head that up again this year.  :woot2:

I’m ready to start thinking about gifts and things for myself. Although this year I absolutely cannot go off the rails with BF shopping like I did last year! And yeah, I tell myself that every year. NO MORE KOHL’S FUZZY THROWS! LOL

Good luck with that! You know the throws are irresistible!! (of course, the designs available right now aren't... Looking forward to new fall/winter designs.)
What?! Everyone isn't already looking at the blankets in July?!

I have no comment on the fact that I may or may not have perused the current designs..... ;)

I have to admit Kohl's was never one of my must stop stops.  But, I LOVE the throws we got last year! They are already on my list in my phone to get this year.  Yes, I have an ongoing list in my phone notes.  When someone mentions they like something or need something it goes in my list. Then I can watch for a good deal :)  I also have a box in my closet that I add little things as I grab them now all year long....saving for the Saran Wrap Ball again!!!!

This year's Black Friday shopping is going to be different. We already have a good chunk of Christmas shopping done. I think the only things we will be going for this year will be DVD's and clothes and maybe a few things from the craft stores. No Toys R Us, not buying any video games this year and almost all the toys have been bought, just need to get a toy for our nephew.

Wow...this came quick, but I'm not complaining!!!! Every year I tell my 3 children I am NOT doing a lot and my daughter looked at me this year and said, "you say this every year, we ask for one thing and you buy all this extra stuff"...what can I say,I love shopping for others and getting great deals, starting my list...

I can't wait to start the ad watch frenzy...curious to see if Kmart will not have an ad again this year (for those of us who still have a Kmart in town)...

They'll probably combine it with Sears again in a smaller ad.

Ugh, I hope not...we might have one Sears left here, so I don't even look at their ad...I just took a look at the ad from last year and I don't remember seeing this at all...the manager at the Kmart we went to didn't even have any ads in store to pass out...even though I don't like Kmart as an everyday shopping experience I do love it during BF...

We still have 2 left in Raleigh.  I find that I can often find lots of stuff on clearance for cheap there because nobody shops at either.  They still have a few aisles of pools stuff left, where Target and Walmart are out of everything at this point.

Yeah, Kmart is the closest store to me, being literally around the corner, but I still prefer to drive up the street to Target or across town to WalMart unless they are having a good sale...I believe we have two left in my area...depending on their sales this year they may not last that much longer...to me, they aren't even competitive, most of their items are over priced and you can find them cheaper elsewhere...

No Kmart left near me. Agree with Kanyon. Sad times. 


For those curious: Kitty in my pic is current furbaby, Mew, curled up in a box far too small for her. Ha! "If I fits, I sleeps!"

 

NASCAR fan (particularly JGR pit crews - many friends there), diehard UM Wolverine fan, animal lover, car girl, cookie baker, singer, bargain hunter. Yep. That about covers it. lol :cool:

Very sad....lost Younkers (aka Bon-Ton), Macy's, Toys R Us,  Kmart and now Sears in this last year :(. Black Friday isn't going to be the same.  Even though I bought a lot of stuff online these last years, I still made purchases for items I wanted to see in the store!

I forgot our Bon-Tons was going out of business this year...didn't really shop there, but it is another big name that is going bye-bye...the fact that JCP is still holding on is a shock to me, will have to see if they survive after the holidays...
