Hi I am Carol. I am married and we live in CT. Our children are 1 cat and 2 birds. I am a new member to this forum because a friend of mine suggested that it would help to increase my eBay sales to know in advance about all the good deals at local retailers. It is very nice to meet all of you!

hello :) I am Crissy, mom to 3 (mostly) wonderful kids, and a very supportive hubby. He'd have to be to keep me around, lol. I've been here on GD for about 4 years now, and doing black friday since i was a little kid. I love this site all year tho :) It has been a very eventful year for me so far, and I hope it continues! And I hope to see some of you other Georgia natives out shopping on BF!

Hi, I am Sarah. I live in Texas. I am a teacher so I always get black friday off, which in my book is just as exciting as my two months off a year. I have one child ds 6 y/o. I am almost done with all his christmas presents. I coupon so I have already had loads of great deals this year. I am already planning to stand outside of Walgreens for black friday. Now if I can only clone myself so I can also stand outside gamestop and walmart! ( I guess that is what my DH is for.)

Most people know me... My name is Kristen I live in Beaver, Pa. about 30 minutes from Pittsburgh. I have been on GD for almost 2 years now. I am happily divorced. lol With 2 great boys, Zac 5 and Jacob 3. My family has done BF for....at least 10 years now. We sit around the table after thanksgiving diner and look at the ads and work out our "strategy or game plan". I dont know what I would have done without GD the past year!!

There's a point in your life when you get tired of chasing everyone and trying to fix everything. But it's not giving up... It's realizing that you don't need certain people, the bull, and the drama they bring

This year I will be shopping at my sisters (she lives in Erwin TN) so if there are any GottaDealers in that area I would greatly appreciate a shopping "buddy" because I'm not sure if she will be going with me or not. :D Nice to meet everyone.


Hi Michelle, I live in Elizabethton, TN which is about 30 minutes from Erwin. We'll have to plan to meet.

Thank you very much for offering to meet me. I know where Elizabethton is and yes its fairly close to my sisters. I know the stores up there aren't near as close to each other as they are here in Atlanta so I think having more than one person shopping would be a big help. Here I have Target on one corner and Wally World on the other LOL so I usually just shoot from one to the other.

We will be that way again in September since my first nephews first child is due then. maybe we can get together then. Do you ever go to the flea market in Bristol? We try to go every time we come up.
:mad:If we had more :2dollar: I could shop more :g_dance:

Hi I am stephanie I am from WI. I grew up in Chicago area but live here in a small town by Iowa and IL. We have 4 kids I do daycare from home, dh is a sales rep. for a major company.
Looking forward to a fun year or Black Friday deals....hopefully anyhow. last year my son went with me and my girlfriend and it was alot of fun. He can get into those spots that are hard to , and who is going to take a toy out of a childs hand. This is our dd9 last year i think with Santa though, real bummer. SHe is going to take it really hard so I HOPE she DOES NOT find out this year.

Hey, I'm Ange from Florida gulf coast, been married 17 years. I have 3 kids - 13 yr old & 8 yr old boys and a 1 year girl. I am a stay at home mom. I've been doing BF for years, however, I am a newbie to GD but I am excited about being here this year. My family will be moving to the San Antonio area in a couple of weeks....so it there is anyone out in that area that can direct me to the best store to go to on BF (I know there are tons of Walmarts, Targets, etc in that metro area), I would greatly appreciate it. :confused:

I guess I should jump in. For those of you that don't know me (and those that do!):

Hi! :) My name is Patty, I have three wonderful children who are dd13, ds10, dd7. We live in Iowa.

I love deals, and as such, I am here all year round. I've been a GottaDeal addict for I believe 3 or 4 years now. I enjoy all the excitement that Black Friday entails. I love meeting all the new members here to GottaDeal, and I encourage every one of you to stick around after the BF season has died down. Believe it or not, you can get FANTASTIC deals all the time here. That is what makes GottaDeal so awesome!

Wow, I just signed in today to see if others were getting excited about BF already. Nice to see that I am not alone. I am a school district librarian who lives on the west coast of Alaska and flies to each of m fifteen schools. I love BF enough that I fly 400 miles to be with my friends in the town of Anchorage. My sons are grown now, so I take lists from others who live in the remote villages here so that I have things to shop for. I hope we all have a great season. Darla
