if i'm getting up at the crack of dawn, i'll probably be alone unless it's a super tech deal, then my brother will go with me. no one else is insane as i am. my aunt would go, but she goes to jc penney/wal mart/etc and i like to hit up the computer deals really early.

GO BRUINS!

I used to shop with my mom but she blew me off for my dad. So, I go with my 18 year old cousin, she is bugging me from college wanting to know if any ads have been posted here yet!

I'm the 'bulldozer' for my wife and sister, plus, at 6'4" I tend to see things better and reach the top shelf.....

I usually go by myself, but Dh is super paranoid this year and does not want me to go alone, so I am bringing my 6'5" 270 lb cousin with me.

It depends on the year - if my mom isn't home I go alone, if she's here we go together.

Last year was my first year and I went with my girlfriend at the time. I'm not sure what plans I will come up with this year. I may crash Nate's Black Friday party if he goes. :)

I usually go with my mom. My new SIL went with us last year, but she slowed us way down. We won't make that mistake again. Mom and I are a good team. It is our one day of the year that is totally just us. I don't have to compete with my kids for her attention. lol

I usually go with my mom, but my husband and my dad have to work that day, so my mom will probably be watching my kids...which means I'll be alone. Unless my brother and my new SIL show up for Thanksgiving. I might be able to drag my SIL with me. Maybe. But alone is fine. It's faster that way.

All three years I've gone it's been me, my sister and my dad. Sadly, I can't go home this year so if I go it will be either me alone or (very unlikely) me and DH. Maybe if we stay up all night until 5 and then go shopping-- otherwise, forget it. I'm bummed to be missing out on the family fun this year. :(

We make a family day of it. I usually go with some of my aunts, cousins, my stepmom, and my grandmother. We'll be the bunch of goofballs you see running through the stores and yelling back and forth. :gd_shake:

Every year, I head out on my own. Love it because I can go at my own pace and not wait for someone to "hurry up" or checkout at the registers. My husband stays home with the kids and after Im done shopping, I meet up with my mom and sister who also shop by themselves (we get all the door busters this way!)

I take my 16 year old daughter. She is 5'1" and weighs 100 lbs soaking wet. All legs and arms, so she can sneak in between people really easy. :lmao: Anyway, I tell her "OOOOh we need that" and point, next thing I know she's beside me with it in her arms. It's great!!:cheesy:

I go with whoever is willing to sit with me outside walmart at midnight...usually no one. I would rather be alone at the front of the line.

ussually dh and a heard of friends. We all have evil plans on how we are going to get everything we want first... We make friend's with people in line, detailed lists, send my dh over to the hard stuff to get, never get carts... We wait patiently in line for about 2 hours before they open and have hot coffee and crack jokes. Sometimes even harrass the people who cut in line and wait to bombared the door. (Not in a really bad way tho this is a pretty small town lol )

Me and the wife... We usually make conversation with the others in line. Last year at OfficeMax, I helped a woman load a 27" TV/VCR/DVD combo into the back of her PT Cruiser.

I'd like to say I have a shopping buddy, but my husband has to stay home with the kids and my sister always poops out on me. So yes, I usually go alone.
