Oh my gosh. It's gotta be at least 18 - 20 years. I started a couple of years before I got married and that's been 16, almost 17, years.

I'm 25 years old and, to be honest, I don't ever remember NOT going out on Black Friday. Actually....I remember going out on this day before it was even CALLED Black Friday, lol.

Ahh, back in the day when you could roll up to Target 10 minutes before they opened at 7am and they would give you a bag stuffed full of freebies and coupons. memories, lol. :lol:

I am just like most on here. I can't remember not doing it! It was before they called it black Friday....but I really have been addicted to it since having my son! It makes for the best Christmas for him that I can afford!

Boy, that's a hard question...I'm 27, and I'm going to guess I've been doing this with my mom for a good 15 years or so. Does anyone remember the free tweey bird gift bags from Target, or the red VW Beatle matchbox cars they gave away a year or two later? I started a couple years before that. I loved getting the free goodies when I was younger.

Funny, I remember a time getting in line at Best Buy less than an hour before they opened and I was probably only 50 to 75 people from the door. That was definitely less than ten years ago because I was in my late teens. Things have changed.
