No budget here either.

Anything under our combined $50,000 credit card limits is game.


Ummm....maybe your cc limit. I'll see about that one. And there's a chance I may have to work that entire week...or if I get the day off I'll be sleeping in. :stir:

I will definitely be using the maximum limit of $300 in Best Buy Bucks from the McDonald's Monopoly game, as I did last year, so hopefully I can get some great stuff from Best Buy without any further hit on my wallet. -Mark-

My father in law is done...mother in law...hmm...might be done... and I buy alot on clearance... cheaply. So I am thinking 100-200 depending on whats on sale... We're thinking about buying a TV for us... so I dont know...We gotta see sales...and call the bankto find out what the daily debit amount is. So we'll see.

Whatever my credit card maximums are, silly! :tongue1: I really want a plasma or LCD TV. Probably will settle for smaller items. Probably $500 or so.

Careful on this one, fine print at best buy webpage, claims no more than 3-4 per dvd/cd and other limits apply on other items...

I am planning on having between $500 and $600 saved up for possible spending on BF. Whether or not I spend all of that depends of course on the deals I find. Can't wait! :cheesy:

500 bucks is all i can do! Building a house sort of drains your budget!

Just depends on the sales! I hear you on building a house; we're not building yet but are buying the land and once that's paid off, we'll start saving up to build (so money's going to be just as tight, it's surprising how expensive land is!).

I have $250 in cash saved up. The rest will be paid for by my debit card from my checking account. No budget. I usually spend around $1000 or so on gifts

I try to budget out how much I will spend on each person, but as far as a Black Friday budget, I am not very good at sticking to those! I often find things that I didn't even see in the ads, and it messes my budget up. THe amount of money I spend also depends on when I get tired.

I don't even do a budget because I always buy more than whats on my lists.

Last year I spent about $600.00 This year I am hoping to save about $1300.00 I am Hoping to get 2 Xbox 360's (The Deluxe set) and than have about $500 left for other Stuff. My Hubby and Brother would die for the new xbox. We shall see, I am sure they will all be gone around here... I am currently buying stuff like a mad woman to sell on ebay (I like to sell childrens books) that helps me with Black Friday as well.
