Ok so I get its only Sept 3rd and all but darn Ace Hardware for getting me all excited!! Its going to be f-o-r-e-v-e-r before we see another add. :( Who else peeks on here at least 2 (or 3) times a day, just in case another store has gone bonkers and "leaked" their add early?

I am on a lot. I even keep it on at work but not just for the ads. There are many great deals to be found on here. If you have kids you will be excited when the big Amazon.com toy sale starts. I also keep up with the Target clearance and many other online deals.

2 or 3 times a day????
:rotflol: If you only knew how many times a day I check this site, you would bust your pants laughing.
But yes, I am antsy for the ads, and antsy for BF to hurry up and get here. But the winter weather can stay put. :)

I am antsy but I also enjoy the rush I get when I am on here 3 weeks before checking the site for updates.

ME! ME! ME! Can't help myself and don't know why as it may be a quiet Christmas this year for us (unexpected bills recently...). But I'm still ready to see more ads and come here often....

Yes, Antsy is one way to put it! My kids are picking up on excitement. I am holding them off until 60 days til BF before they can start making their wish list. (They are not teens yet, so I can predict now what is on the list)

Hehehe you guys! I'm on here more than that also but didnt want to say how many times I'm really on here. (especially as it gets closer lol) I cannot wait for the Amazon sale to start also. I've already been watching the toys movers and shakers but everything is still high. I do forget to watch the in store forum though... gotta check that more often. I almost was stuck doing everything online since my hubby started a new job last december and couldnt get the day off so I had noone to watch Madison but my cousins 16 year old son is going to do it. WOO HOO! My mom and I are already planning our attack, I've got my bf money set aside and I am READY! (I feel like Spongebob I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready LMAO)

I figure I should be getting my Christmas Club check in about a month and then I'll be on here every day! Last year was probably my worst year yet, so I'm hoping to redeem myself!

I've been antsy for close to a month now...LOL I promised myself I would limit my time on the boards to about once or twice a day for fear of crashing! Once late October/early November hits and more ads leak these boards are going to get CRAZY and I'm just as excited about that as I am BF!

Maybe next year Brad can pull a preemptive strike and get his attorneys to tell Ace's attorneys they can't leak their ad out until late September.

I'm pretty much done with shopping so will still go out, but not too antsy as all my shopping on BF now will be impulse buying. haha

Suprisingly, Im not antsy yet. I do check the site often throught out the day, tho. But I think when October comes and the ads start rolling in, thats when I'll start going coocoo :cheesy:

Yeah, I'm excited for BF year round but by July and I'm really ready. I blame it on QVC since they do their annual Christmas in July on the 24/25th. lol

Or maybe I'm just holding onto a couple ads I've received but not posting them just to annoy all of you who keep posting these threads even though it's the beginning of September and you should have other things to be concerned with :shock: :tongue1:

I've actually chatted with the owners of the other BF sites and all of us want a longer summer vacation and won't be posting any ads that we get until October 15th, so come back then :D
