Do you participate in Black Friday?

We want to upgrade our early 90s jumbotron this Black Friday with a new flat screen and tv stand. Thinking the flat screen will be somewhere between 50-60" and the entertainment center needs to be nice quality and with all equipment enclosed (since we have a toddler). I'm wondering how much to budget for this? Probably like 300$ for the stand and up to 1k for the tv right? So maybe 14 to 15 hundred to be on the safe side?

Is there anything you have your eye on for this Black Friday?

I love black friday shopping! However, being in Guam, there's really not much we can get. We can shop at Kmart and online stores, but after shipping, the black friday deals pretty much equals out to be regular prices. So, it's probably not going to be worth it this year and the next few years while we're here.

I want to get my DD a play kitchen. I want to get my oldest son the Flipz headphones. My two younger boys are getting ipad minis.

 check out blackfriday.gottadeal.com and they have the ads from years passed archived so you can get a rough idea of the cost.

I go every year and good luck to you. It can be a lot of fun and it can get kinda crazy, scary to!

NO. I hide at home under the covers on black friday. Screw low prices, I'll pay full price or just not have things.
