We were talking about this last night at my house and I can remember starting shopping on Black Friday 15 years ago when my first nephew was born. I stood out in the freezing cold waiting for TRU to open! My DH has been going 8 years (we have been together 8 years.. LOL! :fluffy:). No one in his family did the Black Friday thing until they met me and now we all go out!!

I've been BF shopping for about 5 years, since high school. I think the first year my mom, older sis and I were looking at ads on TG and my mom and aunt needed a new tv so we decided to try it out. Before that I didn't know much about BF, but we were hooked ever since!

The first time I went BF shopping was with my dad when I was 11 or 12 years old. I'm 37 now, so I'd say about 25 years. Geez, I'm feeling old now.

I started going with my mom when I was a teenager and have kept the tradition with my DH since getting married a long time ago. I don't want to count years, makes me feel old.

Without having to go to work afterwards about 15 years. But when I worked retail, I hit a lot of other stores on the way to mine or the first couple of hours, we would make runs down the mall to the big stores for their giveaways. I did that for at least the last 8 to 10 years I worked retail (left in 1995 for a "normal" job).
