I am ready for this hot weather to be gone and fall to be here. I get excited when I start seeing Christmas cards and other things come out early. I can shop all day on BF and not get a thing for anyone but me.:g_dance:



omg Hobby Lobby already has their Fall & Christmas items out! They have lights, ornaments, garland, etc. I was shocked! It's only July!!!

Can't wait! I've already requested that day off at work too!


Good idea. I have to remember to request that day off when the office comes back from VK.

i thought about this the other day. i was actually sitting here wondering if anyone is ready for BF and xmas and if anyone else shops for xmas all year round, lol.


I'm with you on the shopping year round. We have 5 children and 1 grandchild (2 by Christmas this year). It all started when they were little because it was the only way to make sure they got nice gifts like their friends but on our budget. Now I Christmas and birthday shop year round. We do draw names at Christmas with DH family but that still leaves us with 4 kids gifts to buy and then we do go to all of our neices and nephews birthday parties so if we buy it for Christmas and don't draw their name, there is always a birthday coming from someone.

I have one closet dedicated to good deals and nothing else is allowed in there except wrapping paper and gift bags! Glad it's not just me!!!!

Aww man! I hope they don't bail out on us this year. :(


Me too, I already have envelopes ready. :D

Same here. People at work laugh at me because of my priority of the days I request off for vacation. You can count on me to be on vacation the first week of July for the race in Daytona, and BF. The rest of the year I really don't care about. This year I also requested the day after Christmas, only because we're closed Christmas, I was scheduled the 26th, then off 27th and 28th. So it'll be a 4 day weekend for me. :D

I am soooooo ready for BF! I have stockpiled up on a lot of gifts already that I have found on sale for the in-laws and friends. I mostly shop for my family on BF. I will gather them up, request the christmas wish list, then hit the sales flyers to plan out my route for shopping. The route is planned according to what items are a "must" have and the times that certain stores open. My family thinks I am a WACKO about shopping on BF, but I can't help myself. :D And for those who can not make it out on BF, remember there is always Cyber Monday. Cyber monday seems to be getting better each year and usually there is free shipping for most products on this day.

When I took this job, on of my questions for my employer was Is Black Friday a paid holiday. She said do you want it to be and I said yes so she agreed!! Since going back to work full time I am feeling shopping deprived!! I have been putting money away for BF though and I am not touching it till then.

I have been counting the days. Everyone at work thinks I am crazy. I hope there are better sales than last year. Especially Walmart because that is always my first stop.

I feel the same way, living in Hawaii. We may get some or similar deals on bf, but the prices are usually different.



I'm kinda torn on BF this year. Since we moved to Alaska, I know we're not going to get the same great deals y'all get in the lower 48. But, I suppose any good deal is better than no deal at all!

I heard from another site that Mcdonalds is taking the lead on the BBB game this year, but of course no one knows for sure. I called Mcdonalds Corp. and asked if they had an idea when the game would start(hoping they'd give me details) and the young lady put me on hold and came back and said her supervisor said it's a little too early, but there will be a game and the date is up in the air for now.

Dh and I were working on our game plan already for this year. He may have to work Thanksgiving day. So I said I would go and stand in line with my teenager and he can meet us at best buy at 530 so if I have two of any one ticket he can pay for it LOL

We already have what we're looking for on BF. I'm sure the list will grow as it gets closer. I have already asked my office about time off as well.

I'm buying a pda, so I hope the sd cards are dirt cheap again this year..... I'm hoping they are the 4 gb ones though... AND.... I'm hoping office depot has a clearance page again around the Christmas/BF time... I remember last Christmas those crank up flashlights and radios were a hit among the menfolk... :-)
