My budget for that day was 500$. But now my lovely fuel pump in my Yukon is taking a dump, and since I cannot walk to the stores on Black Friday, I guess I had better get it fixed. So my budget is being drastically reduced as I bargain shop to get my fuel pump replaced. Andrea

We'll have $1,700 to spend. We have been saving $100 every week for several weeks for this day. :cheesy:

No budget. I'll buy what I can justify spending the money on.



Same here. If I need it, and its a good price, I will buy it.

Depends on who you ask me or DH. If you ask me I don't have one :D. If you ask him he would say between $500 & $1000. ;)

What is this "budget" that people keep talking about? I plan to shop until the bill collectors actually show up at whichever store I'm at to break my kneecaps!

We have a shopping list of items that we need/want -- and if we can get a good deal on them, we will get them all -- if not, we will wait until after the holidays or when we find a good sale.

We usually set a $1,000 christmas budget and before BF I've ran into a few deals and spent about $250 of that. I'd love to be done by the end of the day but it never fails that I have a few more things to buy.

I make a list of all the people I need to buy for, and then if something I think they will like is in one of the ads at the price point I give them, I buy it. For instance, I want to get my niece (2 years old) either a 12 inch bike, or a kitchen and my budget is $40.

I shop the same way. I go through each kids list, then I look for other people I would like to give a gift to and then I look for those surprise gifts that no one asked for but I know they will love it. For example I got one son a leather coat from Kohls 60% off and I had a 15% coupon, he did not ask for it but it will be very appreciated. I am hoping for the kichen and bike too. If I found the kitchen I want for forty dollars I would be thrilled!! The bike should be no problem K-mart's Thanksgiving Ad is listing 2 kinds for 19.99. Happy Shopping!! Budget -- whatever I can get by with !

I don't really have one it just all depends on what I decide to get since 75% of my shopping is already done. I hope I don't spend too much and I'm hoping to make a little in some Avon sales.

We don't have credit..so we have been saving all month long for BF. If its not paying a bill, its going into the BF stash. I suspect we'll have between 4 and 5 hundred dollars stashed back. Whether we spend it all or not depends on if we can get the things we're going for.

The buying up xbox 360s might be a good idea to resale on ebay... depending on how much they will go for and what kind of supply they are in, I hear of many many people wanting to do this as a small business venture.

I'll have about $150 to spend, but I'm going to put a couple of big ticket items on lay-away and get them out ASAP.
