Re: I am NOT participating in Dark Thursday shopping

I'll be interested to see how many peeps who have stuffed themselves silly on rich foods at noonish blow chunks upon running around frantic on an early release BB T-Day evening...BB may change their earlybird minds when they see their floors and LCDs covered in previously chewed turkey and stuffing!

Re: The death of Black Friday as we know (knew) it?

Re: Walmart times for Black Friday Sales

The staggered times at WM did confuse and cause me not to shop about other stores as usual, but in all fairness, I did get everything I really needed for xmas last year at WM...and this year the mrs and i are looking to put a new flatscreen in our living room, so i'm really pretty excited to see wha...

Re: We know "Cyber Monday" is nothing but marketing BS, righ

It is hype...I made it a point to compare the pricing for Cyber Monday and check out the sites that flooded my inbox...nothing that you won't find any other "sale" day of the year...in fact, I found many sites that were using CM to "extend" their discounts that were supposed to ...

Resellers Win Again!

If you didn't get what you were running around late to save money on for your family...thank the resellers...and you can now find that missing item by the truckload listed on CL and eB.... Thanks to our local Walmart trying to make a Disney line out of the DVD/Blu-Ray section on BF, the first five p...

Re: Black Friday is officially DEAD.

Re: Best & worst deals of previous years

It still works, but for some reason it wants to burn the waffles towards the middle on each side... I'm actually glad you said that. The waffle maker is what my hubby got punched in the face over last year and it keeps burning the waffles around the top. I thought I was just doing it wrong. lol Wow...

Re: Am I Getting Too Old?

...on top of the beat-down feeling, my college son asked if I would stand with him to get a tv and DVDs from WM...trouble is, I don't even know how to calculate stand time to start as there are so many staggered start times from Thursday thru Friday, there's no going to another area to get something...

Re: The Thrill

With all the staggered start times on Thursday, I'm not even sure what time ahead of those times to line up...it seems so confusing now...in the past, you just lined up for an all nighter at TRU...now everything has 2 hour start stagger times and that's not long enough to go from one area to anothe...

Re: Have you received a BF gift?

My wife and I watched an episode of "Little House on the Prairie" and thought of how wonderful times were when items were made by hand to give as gifts...I've always loved anything given to me no matter the size or source..it just means someone thought of me and gave their best efforts...I...

Re: Best & worst deals of previous years

Best: Well, I have to say that the HP desktop computer I bought in '08 was a good deal as it was about half price and even though the monitor crapped out, the computer itself is still being used in my home today (Vista)...so I'm pretty happy about that...of the two HP laptops I also bought at the sa...

Re: Am I Getting Too Old?

Ouch, yes, I've read horror stories of trying to wait outside in areas with rough weather... The rescue story is as this: while i stood at WM near the DVD pallets, my wife decided to brave the line for the big pallet-box of cheap bath towels...she said a young mother 3rd in line decided to bring he...

Am I Getting Too Old?

Wow...again BF in a few weeks...my boys are now mostly in college with one left in the roost and he's not into "toys"...sigh...many years ago, it was a thrill to stand in line outside TRU all night and rush from item to item...then the boys were into video games, DVD's and electronics, so ...
