Anyone have any ideas for the shopping bag design beyond just having a GD logo on them?

 

And if you all say "and get the bags in pink!" I'll tear my hair out.

Also, bad news for some of you as we're going to skip t-shirts for BF this year. Good news is instead we'll be giving away "BF survival packs" with some new merch items that we haven't offered before, along with a random gift card component. They will be given away only - no buying them. But it lets me assemble and package them all well in advance of things getting busy.

 

I'm sure we'll be back to t-shirts next year and I've got a bunch of older "classic" shirts and a lot of other merch that has piled up over the last ~5 years so we may also do another one of the "GD garage sales" early next year where I fill up boxes with as much leftover merch as possible and sell them for basically the cost of shipping.

Very disappointed to hear this.  I cherish my collection of BF t-shirts.  T-shirt for this, right?

A survival pack sounds like fun.  I look forward to new stuff.  I'll start thinking of 1st ad predictions, and BF photo captions now! :)

There's always a chance a few of the survival packs will have very, very, very limited edition 2019 shirts in them... ;)

I'm still ordering even more stuff to include in these packs. In fact, these will cost me more than the shirts did.

 

If anyone has good ideas for items that would help you survive Black Friday, either in stores or if you're shopping online (and no, I can't include alcohol), post them here and they might show up in the packs.

Chapstick with a GD logo would be a neat addition to the survival kit!

Energy Shots, Mints, battery charger, hand warmers, poncho, crossword/Sudoku, pens, scarfs, ear warmers, gloves, one of those fold-able seats that folds and goes in your pocket.... still thinking...

I love the idea of a folding chair which can be packed up and brought in store. I have no BF support team, and generally just stand while in line, as I don't want to lose my place to put a chair away.

I don't think I checked in for the month yet.  It almost got away but I remembered at least.

 

I'm really liking the survival pack concept.


I'm just a dude trying to find a good deal.

Great ideas everyone! I really liked other people’s ideas of RIFD card sleeves, phone battery charger, granola bars, mints and chapstick. I think maybe those small plastic Kleenex packs/pouch would also be a good option.

How about wallets, small purses, and/or fannie packs. I think we did GD backpacks at one point, didn't we? Also candies and M&M would work.

Another chapstick addict here, especially the Candy Cane variety they put out during the holiday season.  One in my pants pocket, one in my purse (in case I lose the one in the pocket), one in my lunch bag for work (in case I forget to put the designated pants pocket one in my pocket), one in my locker at work, one on my nightstand, one on my side table and one in my bathroom.  You should see how many tubes I got in my stocking at Christmas.  It was kind of ridiculous but I should have enough to last me through the year...…..maybe.  LOL

The Kleenex pouches are a great idea!  My nose always runs when I'm outside.....always.

I put it in my buggy when I get one. Only go back to the car if I get a ticket for the item I want. Otherwise whatever I have - tent and all - goes with me in the store.

Not one time or at any store. Usually there to worried about getting ran over or someone trying to skip lines. They know I been out there for a while so they have never said not to. Now Rufus my 2nd Amendment friend is another story. :lmao:

If you're not doing the t-shirts, any chance of a hoodie?  Heck, I'd consider buying one!  :)
