Time for another contest!

HOW TO WIN: Let's say you were given $500 to buy anything in any of the posted Black Friday ads. What would you buy?

Reply to this thread with the store, item name and price for each item you'd buy. Make sure you don't spend over $500 total (don't worry about tax)

You can view the current ads w/ prices here: http://blackfriday.gottadeal.com

Feel free to use items from any store, including stores which we post ads from between now and the end of the contest.

Limit one entry per member. Entries will be accepted until 10pm ET on Wednesday, November 9th. At that point I'll randomly choose 10 entries and those members will receive Black Friday t-shirts.

Good luck to all!
