My DH and I are both teachers. We have 4 kids and just have to make the most of every dollar, but doesn't every one spend cautiously now? The truth is most people don't camp out for hours or days, most people show up about 15 to 30 minutes before and hope for the best. Usually we are in and out in an hour and a half.

This year I scored
6 pj sets $4 each
Air Hockey table $30
4 bikes $125
Hot wheels loop track that hangs on the wall $25
Lala Loopsy Tree house $20
Card board Pirate fort (the one kids ccolor themselves) $7
Card Board kitchen set ( same one that kids color) $7
Pink castle tent w/ drawbridge door $9
Remote control car $6
BB gun $15
Pellet gun $8
3 big candles $7
Paper airplane set $9

I went to 3 stores and was gone for just over 2 hours. Its no biggie imo.

I think you're a idiot for fighting people and standing out in the cold for 4 dollar pjs.

Cool. I don't have the patience for it though. And I'm not risking my kids by bringing them and I'd have no choice.

Sorry but id rather pay full price then deal with the insanity that is black Friday. Besides most of those stores are also having awesome deals online. Way better then going to the stores

I would be an idiot to shop Black Friday.
I can barely make my rent. No money for extras.

 I'll catch the sales earlier in the year that has the same markdowns. Plus, I shop online and get free shipping most of the time.

Who was fighting? You are so ignorant. And I actually went for the $25 bikes. Pj are the icing in the cake.

I shopped online this morning. I avoid stores as much as possible this time of year.

This. In my opinion it's just both worth the hassle. People shoving, fighting, and even killing each other! It's just not worth the headache. I'd rather stay at home where it's safe.
