The past five years it's been TRU, KayBee, Target and WM. This year may change since they're opening WM and Target stores a mile from my house.

We usually hit circuit city first since it seems to be open first and not as crazy as best buy and then target.

Usually Kohls is first in our list. By then the malls are open and we hit whatever department store has the next best ad. Unless DH is looking for any tools that the Sears ad has then the game plan will change and Sears will be first :(

I need some ads Brad! lol. Then I can make my plans. One key ingredient in the plan every year, avoid Walmart at all cost (most of the time we can do this). Especially with their BF ad threats. Go Target!!!;)

We always hit Wal Mart first only because its the first store here that opens and we dont need to go to best buy usually. So this year it'll be probably like last year: wal mart, target, sears (depending on deals), walgreens, ace hardware, home. Then back to wal mart, toys r us, mall stores, target again lol

It depends on the ads for me. I've gone to Walmart first one time. That was my first BF. Now I usually head to the mall first. Our mall opens at 3 a.m on BF. So I go there first for KB Toys and then head to Target or Kohls. Last year I went to KB, then Kohls because they opened at 5 am. We got there just as they opened. Then we headed to Target.

I think this year we will hit Target first, but then again, it depends on who has the best deals on what I'm looking for or want...

Staples just opened a store in town. I can't wait to see what they will have. It may be fun to start somewhere new.

I always go to Target first. That is where I get almost all of my Christmas. Every single time I wait until later to go to Walmart, they still have the stuff I want and there is hardly ANYONE there. That has happened for me these past two years.

We start at Penny's (the main mall in GF); then do the rest of the stores there. From there it depends on the ads and where the person driving wants to go. In the past 2 years I have gone to Walmart later and asked if they had a specific special left (last year it was DVD player) and lucky enough they had more in back.

Best Buy...I hope. Last year despite everyone's warnings I did CC...and boy did I regret that! If BB has a good TV sale I'll go there...but I'll check with Ultimate Electronics to see if they will match it like they did last year first.

Most of the time it's Walmart, but it just depends who has the best deals and what I'm looking for. And of course...how bad I want it :cheesy:

It really depends on the sales. Last year we went to Kohl's first because they had the huge pillows and down comforters on sale and they opened at 4 I think. The year before that it was Wal Mart.

I avoid Wal-Mart like the plague. I don't need anything THAT badly...(bad past experience) We generally start at Sears for DH's yearly tool infusion, we have one near us, we get there about 10 mins after opening, no one seems to go there so we get everything we want. Next we go to Target, get there right at or after the opening, a crowd but nothing crazy, we split up the list and run around fast. BUT this year we have Kohl's finally in our area so maybe that will be stop 2 this year. After that IHOP for breakfast and then maybe 1 more store, usually Toys R Us or Penneys or some other such. Anyway generally home by 10 a.m. and get about 90% of what's on our list.
