All who have accomplished great things have had a great aim, have fixed their gaze on a goal which was high, one which sometimes seemed impossible....

Turn on the Rocky Theme Song

I am getting pumped up for Black Friday Shopping!

Do,Do,Doooooooo. Do,Do, Doooooooo!

Just kidding. I'm not about to go out there with a fighter mentality and I wont be throwing any punches (unless I get hit first ::wink wink::). I will however stealthy move through those aisles with amazing speed grabbing everything I need and being first in line to check out where and be back in bed before hubby leaves for work. 'Cause I'm smooth like that!

Honestly, I almost wasn't going to go this year. I was un-impressed with the ads but after a closer look I found almost everything on my list. Cheap Toys, DS games, DVD's, Awesome deals on the only clothing brand DH wears etc...I am also going to try online shopping this year. I have no idea how it will work out but I'll give it a go. I'm hearing lots of stores will open up their online BF prices at 12:01 a.m. and other when the stores open. I cannot seem to find a list with the times but I'll ad it if I do.

Here is the list for In Store Openings:

Best Buy: 5:00 a.m.
Kohl's: 4:00 a.m.
K Mart: 6:00 a.m.
Bath and Body Works: 12:01 a.m.
Burlington Coat Factory: 6:00 a.m.
Target: 5:00 a.m.
JC Penney's: 5:00 a.m.
Toys R Us: 5:00 a.m.
Old Navy: 5:00 a.m.
Walmart : 5:00 a.m.
Walgreens: 7:00 a.m. (though I have heard 24 hour stores with start sales at 12:01)

This is just a general list. Hours may vary.

My best advice to avoid hitting multiple stores is Price Matching. This year Walmart is doin' it big! They not only have the hottest ad out but they also price match (store policy). Bring in an ad from another retailer and Walmart will price match on an identical item. Did you see a DVD at Best Buy for $4 but Walmart doesn't have it listed in their sale ad or if they do it's $11? Bring the ad and give it the cashier at checkout. They will not be taking a copy or ad print out though, so keep this in mind.

Lots of retailers are offering promotions on this day too.

*Kohl's has Kohl's Cash where you receive $10 in Kohl's Cash for every $50 you spend. Kohl's Cash is just like regular cash but you do not receive change. You can use it in between the dates on the certificate and say you buy something and your total is $10.51, use your KC and pay the remainder OOP. I had $30 in Kohl's cash last year which I gave to DH so he could use it when he shopped.

*Macy's has printable coupons for $10/$25 Purchase and a 15% off al day shopping pass. Go here to print yours!

*JC Penney's has FREE shipping on orders of $25 or more, offer code 44FS25, through December 1st. From 3 - 11 p.m. they have a coupon for $10/$50 purchase and $15/$75 purchase for those of you who shop a little later in the day. If you will be shopping in store that day don't forget to grab your free snow globe. I always ask for two (and they are happy to give them to me) and I put them in the boys stockings.

I'll be in line at Kohl's at 3:30, all bundled up drinking my Pumpkin Spice Latte! Where will you be? Sleeping and recovering from Turkey overload? On the computer snagging deals or out in the cold with the rest of us crazy people?
