I've always gone alone. Dh has stayed home with the kids. This year, if I go out, the kids will come along, but not till later in the day/weekend, so my true BF shopping will be done online (and alone, as nobody else will be online shopping with me, LOL).

Hm, apparently it's not family fun with just your sibling. 2003, it was just my brother (Eric) and me. 2002 - Eric, our friend Patrick, and me. 2004 - Eric, his gf Stasi, and me. 2005 - Just Eric and me again. -Mark-

:::sung to George Thorogood's I Drink Alone:::

I shop alone, yeah
with nobody else
I shop alone, yeah
with nobody else
You know when I shop alone
I prefer to be by myself...

Actually, if I could convince either of my guys (dh or ds) to get up and shop with me, it would be nice. But, neither of them will deign to even acknowledge that I'm up at that time of the morning on a day off from work and school. And since we're out of town at FIL's for the holiday weekend, I have no friends nearby to shop with.

I eventually meet up with family, but actual shopping is done by myself. On thanksgiving we give each other a store to go to. (mom, sister, and I). Once we go to all the stores we agreed on, we meet for lunch. Its great and I know if I couldn't make it to a particular store in time, one of them already got the stuff I wanted there

In all honestly, I cannot get one of my friends to go out at the hour I do. They prefer to go much later. So I prefer just to go out myself and be the first few in line. I don't mine. I always meet tons of nice people while in line.

I go with my best friend, the hubby stays with our children. It's the one day of the year we can leave the house way before the sun comes up and stay out until we are completely broke without a husband calling and asking when we will be back. It's understood we are shopping hard and we are to be left alone unless there is a child emergency LOL

I go with whoever is willing to get up at 3am. This is probably the ONLY thing I do NOT procrastinate at!!! When I say 3am, I MEAN 3am! You're late? you'll need to drive yoruself, cause I'm already gone. lol

I've shopped in the past with my mom and sisters, and last year and this year I'll be shopping with my sister in laws. Only once have I went out by myself--I admit you can cover more ground alone, but it is imo more fun with others with you. amy
