I love Target BF

I have made Target my first BF store, wait outside in the cold (or rain last year) talking to all the other crazies in line for the last 2 years. I am so hoping they have a great sale again this year because they do an awesome job in my Town. Even the year that Target wasn't first on my agenda and t...

Target was Awesome!

I have never seen a more organized BF than at Target this year. I was in line at 4 AM about 20 people back. 4 times a manager came out and gave the same speech that my preschooler gets at his school. They handed out maps once and the announcements were happy not mean or anything. No pusing, no runni...

Awesome day, and kudoos to Target

Was in line at Target at about 4, the store lost it's main power at 5:15 and it was dark in the lot! Emergancy store lights came on and they still opened on time but very dim lighting, which made it extra fun to find things! I heard they still don't have main power. The employees were Awesome, they ...

Don't wash your hair right before leaving the house

Oh I remember the first BF I ever did. I had really long hair and never blew it dry. (22 inches donated last year to locks of love kind of long hair) Live on the east coast and at 3 AM took a shower and went straight out to the lines. Well my hair froze into these ice strings. Was all the way behind...

I really need this one

I am going to wait in the cold for the Dyson at Target. I can't believe I am waiting for that instead of some cool electronics or computer gadget but I need it. I scoped out Target on Monday and they only had 2 of the sale ones on the shelves. I asked if they would be stocking more, but they didn't ...

Thanks for the laughs. The thing I am not fond of.....

I can't stand it when a never before BF'er wants to go with me. NO WAY. I have a plan, I stick with the plan and I can't wait for you to figure out your plan in the stores.

You are not alone!!!!

Many of us will still be out at some crazy hour waiting in the cold. I will be right there too, and I also enjoy the atmosphere of it. I have met some great people on BF and it is so great to talk to other people like me. Us with our clip boards, manifest list, all the flyers and a smirk on our face...

We all research - that is why we are here

I loved the crazy people in line with me last year and felt akin to all of them. This year will be different because my list is smaller and my perfect plan from last year won't work this year. I am going to have to join the heavy hitters at Target and Walmart this year, since no big ticket items are...

Anyone else have a SO that just doesnt' get it?

I have been a BF'er for 4 years now and my husband still doesn't get it. I am ready to wait in line in the cold and shop like a maniac (solo). On one hand he is telling me not to buy toys for our kids (3 and 5), going back and forth about they Dyson at target and fixing our expensive Kenmore that ha...

Would never boycott - there are still some deals, just not..

I would never boycott. One of the best parts of BF happens at 4 AM or so when you start talking to the people in line around yourself and get to meet the people that are just as crazy as youself. There are still some deals, just not as many as last year. I think that people in this economy will be f...

Yes. Have kids.... will BF

I didn't even get into the addiction of BF until I had my own kids. I have not yet put TRU first on the list but I do usually go there as my 3 or 4 stop. I had a nice time last year and even had help from associates stocking more things when I was there. This year so far the sales haven't been super...

802.11n (mimo)

802.11N is the way to go. I had a Linksys 802.11G which was great at the time but when I changed to the 802.11N recently and you can actually tell the difference in speed and connection range. Netgear has a good one at a resonable price. I would try geeks.com as they have some great prices. I am abl...
