since this year I live so far from everyone I guess I'll go with friends but my sister will have to be shopping with her adult children in Atlanta for things that I want and we will meet later in the day to hook up and split everything.

I have gone by myself and with dh. I'll probably go alone if I go at all this year. Last year there was nothing I wanted/needed.
If not today, maybe tomorrow...:mail:

My oldest son has gone with me the past 2 years. Then we hit Denny's for breakfast. 2 of my brothers go out in the Orlando area and we call each other to see if there is something we need in the stores they are in, if it is out of stock in Jax. Strangely, doorbusters that sell out in Jax are often still avail in Orlando??? And my oldest brother went to Walmart in St Augustine 3 hours into the fray and got doorbusters the past 2 years, so I am willing to call on others to get out of their beds!!! But I like the anticipation of standing in lines and talking to the people around me.

I go with my DH...Although, a few years ago we invited my BIL and he has been coming ever since. My family is usually all over so we pick thing's up for each other.

I go with my Mother (has MS & is in motorized scooter - nice parking spaces & we pile her up with stuff) & Dad (drives van and takes purchased items to van. He is also great for standing in line while we shop and add stuff to the cart. Lately, my DD20 has come the last couple of years and loves it!

sister in law.... We usually take her van, but she sold it this year and bought a convertible, so now we will have to take my CRV, which probably won't hold as much!

It started with me, then my wife got involved, then some friends joined in, so who knows this year?!! It is a whole lot easier with a group of friends!

A group of friends I have gone with for the past 5 years or so, but thanks to GD, I really didn't need that much last year, my BF purchases were mostly "wants". This year, my 16 year old son may stand on line at BB if they have a lappy for a good price. I would like to get one for each of my kids, so I may have him and his brother camp out.

I shop with my mom who swears she wont do it again that next year but always does, probably because she has the easiest part since I run (and I do mean run) to get everything and all she has to do is watch the cart(s).

I always go with my sister. we have been known to drag her DH along with us and that works out fine. I took a boyfriend one yr to fry's. Fry's is stupid and its a grab what u can store with no tickets handed out. I was first in line. i went one way with my list bf just had to go another and grab a tv. by the time i got over there all the tv's were gone!. One guy was sitting up in the air on a stack of 4 tv's!!! and my lovely bf had none. he just couldnt hack the pressure and competition hahaha. i think that is why he is now my X. That is the true test of a relationship----true love----how they deal with my BF plans. LOL Ya just gotta be tuff enuff to handle it. So i will stick with my tried and true shopping buddy my sister. Even when she moved 3 time zones away we did BF by phone. It worked great cuz she was able to give me heads up on happenings with stores that opened 3 hrs b4 mine did :D But she is back in vegas with me again and we are already discussing BF and anxiously awaiting the release of sales ads to plan our strategy. All i can say is thank God for Gotta Deal. Does anyone else remember the prehistoric times we u had to rush and get the paper on thursday and figure out ur game plan all in one day while cooking Turkey day dinner then head to the stores almost blind hoping ur paper had ALL the sales ads in it LOL. Awww....thank u gotta deal for bringing us into the 21st century :D

I've usually gone by myself, it's just easier. But last year DH met up with me around 6 and went to a couple of stores with me. It was nice to be able to take his car for the rest of the day while he took mine home and unloaded. He also was a good line place holder, and is extremely tall, so he was able to get a few things that were "out" on lower shelves. I've hit him up for going this year to a few stores and he probably will. However, I'll probably still do the bulk of BF on my own. It all sort of depends on who's living at our house by then (foster parents).

Well it turns out my sister wants to go to Best Buy this year with her hubby! She saw how busy it was when we passed there at 3AM last year, but she still wants to go. I told her no way I was going to Best Buy and good luck! :eyepoppin I will babysit her son Thanksgiving day, and my mother will have him the rest of the night as I do plan to head out to WalMart and a few other stores. So I am back to shopping alone on BF, which is good as I can go where I want, when I want, and most important come home when I want. :cheesy: :holiday08 :holiday08

My mom's (deceased 2 years) bestfriend and my niece (16). It's a yearly thing. She promised to carry on the tradition after my mom passed away and we hooked her! The first year she was like I can't believe I am doing this, but by the end of the day, she was like look how much I got done with very little money!

I had gone alone for years and last year my husband had off so he ventured out with me. I thought he would hate it but he had just as good a time as I did. I look forward to him joining me this year too!

I like to go it alone in the early hours in order to move in and out quickly among the crowd but if the husband takes out, we tagteam early and then regroup midday for whatever is left.

I go alone w/ cell phone, comparing prices with my sister and sister in laws. Sometimes we meet up with each other. DH also thinks I am out of mind - but I have fun with it.
