I always spend $100-$150. I finish all my Christmas shopping before Black Friday so on Black Friday all I'm doing is picking up extra stuff for the kids and stuff. Plus it's the only day of the year when the husbands take over the kids and let us women go out and have fun :)

I'll probably spend about $300-$500 on Bf. It just depends on what's on sale and what the big ticket items are.

I am hoping to have 1,000 to spend. With the economy being in the crapper, hopefully tv's get cheap for BF. If they get really cheap like 5-600 for a 46" then I will get that. If they are too high yet then I will get a 32" for the girls and maybe a 37" for the adults. Spend the rest on other junk or maybe save it for christmas shopping if the deals stink.

Hopefully I won't need anything too big this year... I might need to get a new digi-cam since screen on mine is starting to turn purple for no reason... hopefully just under 300 for this year... we'll see. it really depends on the ads.

Maybe $400-$600 for DVDs, Christmas presents, maybe a bit of computer hardware, random stuff for myself.
Maybe less, really depends on what's available, last year I saved a lot of money by getting everyone DVD box sets, so maybe I'll try that again :P
If I can get a cheap HD tv for my bedroom I'll do that, I was gonna say a 32" under $500, but I just checked Best Buy's website and they already have some TVs like that, so maybe I'll get something a little bigger or a little cheaper.
EDIT: Probably gonna go with 720 cause I heard that you really can't tell the difference until the TV gets to a certain size.

Your probably right on the last part. I have a friend who has a 57" or a 61"? not sure but he used to have 1080i and everybody was telling him to go 1080p, saying it was a huge difference. He finally did it and he said they were right. There is a huge difference between 1080i and 1080p.

I'm pretty sure that I'm gonna have a limit of $200 - $300. I already have most of my shopping done, so I'll just be looking for those left on my list...and maybe a present or two for myself. :wink: I'm hoping the big ticket items that I need I will be getting from Santa. :D

It honestly depends on the deals that I find. If there is something expensive that I want, or want to give as a gift and there is a good deal on it I will likely buy it.

I'll let you know on Thanksgiving.

Most likely $500 - $1000.... although we buy stuff for ourselves, not gifts (well, gifts for ourselves I guess). We only have a few people we buy for and they are always with us on BF.
