location is the Gulf Coast (MS). am married to a Naval Officer, who is gone a LOT this command (sigh) and 2 wonderful beautiful sweet girls (2, 6) this is the first time i have ever been to the site--i just discovered it from a scrapbooking site--and am going to visit here REGULARLY. i AM excited about BF. But i live in a SMALL town in MS :( and the nearest Target is 45 mins away (my favorite store) which then has a Toys R Us right across from the mall and a walmart a fair distance (5 mi or so--it ALL becomes relative, LOL) away. BUT my husband also has duty on Thanksgiving day (i don't care) which means he doesn't get home until around 8:30 on Friday (which you know what THAT means) AND i was planning on cooking turkey that day... so IF i got to any sales it would be to just the wallymart here in town and possibly Radio Shack--would like to get to Toy r Us in 30 mins the other direction... but if i did that--might as well go the extra 15...) anyway probably not shopping BF this yr (whew! long explanation THERE!) what was question? LOL Emilie

Hiya Emilie! Don't worry there will be some great online deals for you to take advantage of too! Have you checked out the other forums here? There's one for online deals and that might help you out with your shopping , there's nothing better than sitting at home in your jammies doing your christmas shopping LOL :) 12 day and counting!

Hello Everyone!!! Let's see.. Location: I live in Poplar Bluff MO, small town about 2 hours south of St. Louis on the AR border. State of Mind: Dazed and Confused...... Full time job, 4 Boys.....what would your state of mind be?? I am divorced 5+ years but have been in a relationship for 4+ I love gottadeal, I am the kind of person who has to know more than the next and know it first. I tell all my coworkers at The Home Depot about this site. I am always excited about Black Friday. Even if nothing I want is on sale, I will still be at Wal-Mart at 1-2am just to check it out. Keep up the good work everyone and LONG LIVE Ebay. Jeff

Hey everyone! I'm Mandy(25) and I am married to Toby(27). We will be celebrating our 9th anniversary this Friday! We have one son named Camryn who is 4 years old. We live in a really small town called Denton in North Carolina. We are about an hour from major cities such as Charlotte or Winston Salem. I'm a SAHM. I keep busy though between my son and our animals(2 cats, 2 rabbits, 2 english mastiffs, 5 hermit crabs, a hamster, and a goldfish). I love Black Friday but so far I am not really impressed by the rumored sales. I'm hoping they turn out to be better than they are looking. The coupon thing sounds like a great idea! I love this site and love all the features especially the message board. I can't wait to see the rest of the ads and also to find out for sure what the sales are actually going to be at places such as walmart and target.

Mandy

About ME: 1) New York City (Manhattan) 2) Engaged :clapping: 3) I like GottaDeal.com because of coupon codes and RossMAN (I'm from AnandTech Hot Deals forum, member there since 10/2000). 4) I'm VERY excited! Usually I "do black friday" in NYC or Northeastern Pennsylvania, but this year me and my girl will be in Florida so it will be a new experience for me: mainly, I won't freeze my a$$ off getting in line at Best Buy at 4:30am! Instead, it will be like 80 degrees!

BMDoobie, where at in FL? I know what you mean about the weather though. It will get cool but not nearly as bad as places up north. The bad thing about that is that you can't really get in the Christmas/Holiday spirit when the weather is that warm outside.

Hey everyone, Tera here in Phoenixville/ PA ...right outside philly (GO EAGLES) However, I shop in my mom's neck of the woods (Levittown, PA) Married for 10.5 years to Bob (looks like spiderman, Tobey M) He thinks there is something wrong with me getting up before dawn to stand in a line, in the freezing cold, just to shop. However, he's given up and just tells me not to spend TOO MUCH! Two boys, Ian (8) and Jacob (5) found gottadeal by chance...so happy I did I am extremely excited for Black Friday (while my family looks forward to turkey I look forward to pouring over the ads) I have dragged my mom out on BF for the last 4 years (she's a saint and holds my place in line at toysrus while I look for more toys) However had to restrain her from hurting a women who ran half way up her legs with a cart last year...she's fiesty (I guess that's where I get it) Now I just need Target, KB, and kohl's to roll out their ads so I can decide where to go first. Happy Shopping everyone!

Dang I forgot the questions!!!!

I live in Fort Wayne, Indiana
Single have 3 of my very own BRATS. Daughter (18 w/ tattoo and tongue pierced :yuck: ) Two sons (one is 15 11/12 Driver License time :yuck: and the other is 13 and is special needs and sweet as can be still, knock on wood) I have a commitment phobe boyfriend ;) and a Giant Golden retriever.
I work in merchandising, putting up displays in stores every workday of the week, the stores vary from day to day, but I'm your best bet if you are looking for a price on anything in Walmart, Target, Kmart, Best Buy, Kohls, Staples.........hmmmmmmm there are more, but I can't remember off the top of my head, how sad. I do mystery shopping on the side for fun and profit.

coupon forum??? HECK YES!!! Dude I live in the coupon capital of the USA! Ask any couponer who is addicted to it where the deals are and they will tell you FORT WAYNE INDIANA! We are unique because they triple every day, not on certain days and they all ad match too. Quads happen around holidays..............Last week I was in a Meijers doing a bit of coupon shopping and went through the self scanners. Had about 15 or so Items and handed the lady my coupons, next thing I know the scanner is shooting me money!!!! They owed MEEEEEEEEEEEee!!!! So you want coupon tips??? Open the forum and I'll be there with bells on! :clapping:

Crap had better take this opportunity to say I found y'all from a link on a board where I moderate! Come on over and join and bookmark us too!!!

Care to share some of your secrets with us coupon-clip-a-holics?


Tip #1 - know the coupon policies of the store you use most often. Mine doubles all coupons up to .99 but will only double 4 for the same product. So I know to seperate orders. :2afro:

Tip #2 -Dd you know that the circulars from Sunday's paper are thrown out by the places that sell them? Only the newspaper part gets returned. I started buying my paper in the same place and PURPOSELY became friendly with the manager and Monday morning am workers. Now they give me all the circulars that are left for FREE. Some weeks I get 5 Michael's 40% off coupons and all the rest of the coupons as well. :clapping: :giggle:
