Thank you. I love comparing what I paid before. Or just referencing what I got before before I buy again.

I think everything is going to be more expensive this year.

Man I wish I could go back in time and get all the ads from previous years so they could be rescanned for the site.  Even better would be going back and finder even older ones.

I saved the physical ads going back at least 15 years and have picked up a couple older ones when they've popped up on ebay.

 

It's been on the to-do list to re-scan them for years now. I even bought a fancy large format scanner to handle the larger sized ads.

 

It's just that a job like that will take a long time with so many ads per year with so many pages each, and then making sure each page is cropped, numbered and labeled correctly.

I cannot believe there's not more ads out yet.

We got spoiled with the early stuff last year! Hopefully we see Target & Best Buy in the next few days.
