Do you have a set schedule you adhere to on BF, or just run wild?

I am going nuts.

Postby teknoge3k » Thu Nov 06, 2008 9:57 am

Ok, the ads are coming very slow this year.. Like someone else, (I think it was Bexx, but I am too lazy to look) I come on this site all year in anticipation that something will be posted. Even though, I know it won't.
I know there's another post about the ads coming slow, and this isn't intended to be a duplicate post, but... I NEED MY ADS
I feel like a crackhead going through withdraws right now, because no good ads are coming out, which stinks.
With that being said, as of the date of this post... We have 22 days left.
We have 384 days until Black Friday 2009.

Maybe I am too into this. :?

On Black Friday, we always hit JC Penny first, to get our snow globe. Then we run over to Wal-Mart to stock up on their $2 DVDs, and get anything else good they have. Then we go to Staples, and my wife drops me off, while she runs to K-Mart. After that, we hit Lowes, then go to Cracker Barrel to eat, then we go home to put up our Christmas decorations. Does anyone else have a set schedule they typically adhere to on BF?

I kind of set a schedule, but it is different every year based on what I want the most.......I will be camping at best buy, but I always stop at meijers, kmart, targer, walmart, kohls, and any other that I think I need something from. But the order of those will be based on the ads that are NOT coming out!

We don't have a Kohls or a Meijers here... We usually hit the same stores in the same order. Sometimes you can throw Office Max in my schedule based on what they have. :)

I just run wild from store to store. Sure, I have a schedule of which stores I am hitting in which order, but that depends upon what they have each year. I don't stop at a store simply because it's on my schedule. If it doesn't have anything, I skip it and head to the next.

We set a schedule on T day every year. We sit down to make our list and figure out when and where to go. Last year my sister and I camped out at BB. This year I don't think we are camping but we will be going out around 3:00am. I can't wait to see if the sales are going to be really good or if they will be so so. It really does not matter though because we still go every year. I love BF!

Me, too. This is the first year in a long time that hubby will be able to go with me (assuming nothing goes awry) so I won't be alone. It'll be nice to have some company with me while I'm slowly turning into a people-sicle. :lol:

Last year I was at Kohls when it opened at 4am and out by 4:15. Then right to the Walmart line where it opened at 5am and was out by 5:30. Over to Target next door when it opened at 6am then to another Target then to K B Toys then to another Walmart.

Sent my husband to Circuit City and Staples, my father to Toys R Us and Best Buy (he decided against it after seeing the line) and my brother to Macys and Sears. We split up the stores so we can be at more when they open.

I so agree with some of the other posts - I can't wait for the ads. It is killing me that I don't have more in my hands.

The Hubby and I always set a schedule/list of stores we will go to and what exactly we need at each store. I am really waiting for the TRU add. With three kids that is usually my first, and most important stop!

The ads are what makes up our schedule.

I used to love it when they staggered start times. Now everyone around here, opens at 5AM = ( so its hard to get from one to the other and still get doorbusters.

We split up. I let hubby get the easy stuff so he can go back to bed. He gets excited about it but wants it over quickly. He just doesn't fully understand. Maybe one day...........Otherwise it depends on what I need as to which stores to go too.
