I have been going since I was two years old. Tradition started off with my granny, my mom, my sister, and myself. Now that my mom and granny can't go anymore, my sister and I still go! I am 27 now, so I have been going for 25 years, and haven't missed a year! I might have to miss this year (well really early shopping that is) because I will be 9 months pregnant!!

LOL, even the avatars are primed for the fun times associated with the shopping season. I think I'll start getting serious in here after Columbus Day. It will sporadic til then.

This will be year 7 of my hardcore BF shopping with my "Team" of 4 close girlfriends. We've already started to plan our mission; can't wait, so excited!!! Love to talk about it!

This would be year 10 for me. I think that since it is such a mile stone I should buy something extra for myself! :lol:

Been shopping since teenage...so probably around 20 years. I have gone out pregnant and gone out with infant strapped to front of me (she was up at that time anyways - and I only went to 3 stores...so kept it simple and stayed out of total craziness. Was only gone from home 1.5 hours that time.)

Been around on the board a few years...just started posting more last year or two.

Umm.. I think this year will be my.. fifth or sixth year..
I'm Canadian, and have a friend in Vermont who always raved about Black Friday (he introduced me to this site actually, bless you Cliff). Then when I started seeing the black friday commercials on our 'amercian' television stations I was like hey that price on that barbie is frigging awesome (example lol)
The first year we were like totally unprepared.. we all went to Maine with a couple hundred bucks each and fully expected that each of us would walk away with the $199 desktop computer on the front page of the Best Buy ad.. we were floored when we hit the lineup at 330am and it was around the block.. lesssons learned, my friends.. since then I have been using bfads and other resources to map out strategies and figure out what time stuff opens.. it was only last year that I first discovered these message boards and got hooked :) I love being able to talk to people who are as psyched about BF as I am, because let me tell you, my friends and coworkers get sick of hearing about it by November.. lol
I love my dogs more then I like most people.

There is nothing else in this world I get as excited for as I do for Black Friday. :D
