Have you started? When do you normally start?
I was thinking about tackling Black Friday this year.. I have only been once and that was as my SIL's sidekick .
Of you do go Black Friday shopping, how do you go about it?
Do you save for it? Do you scope the ads and make a list? It do you just go with the flow?

I shop online. People get on my nerves on Black Friday. People get on my nerves in general. I'm also in a number of co-ops so I've been buying things here & there through those.

I shop all year. If I see something I think someone will like, I buy it and put it away.

I work retail and fast food, so I'm usually on the employee side of Black Friday. But for solstice gifts, I shop throughout the year for adults (like if I see something that reminds me of them and it's on sale, I'll buy it and save it). For kids I usually wait only because if I buy TOO early, they might already have what I bought for them by the time the solstice comes around.

I hit the Black Friday online deals. I've been able to get some amazing deals plus free shipping and none of the crazy 3am nonsense.

I'm a divorced mom so, yep I start early. Only way to stick to the budget and still get my boy all the things I want him to have.
