When I drink I find its easier to watch my children because I see all 3 of them double, so all 6 of them of them take all my attention

This was posted on another board I'm on and I thought it was worth putting here since it has to do with Holiday shopping. It looks like we may not be finding great deals at Target this year.

Any other sites or place to shop? I plan to buy some AG clothes but I'd like to get a few cheaper items to add since she is new at this.
I have ordered from them and their quality, while certainly less than AG, is good and their historical doll replicas are near identical. I have been pretty happy with them and they have often sent me a little "extra" with my purchases!

Thanks for posting this! I love Target and do most of my shopping there! Hopefully this will not impact my Christmas shopping plans!

I am. But only for the fun and girl time . I don't kill myself looking for that hot deal. A girlfriend of mine and I go every year...she drives (she's the nightowl) and I buy breakfast after Cracker Barrel when we are finished shopping. I usually pick up a few things here and there (honestly, I end up getting stuff for myself mostly...new PJs & sweaters [I always have luck at Old Navy with these items]) and I usually get my stocking stuffers knocked out. This will be our third year going together and we love it. I used to avoid BF like the plague, but she talked me into it and now it's a tradition.

Every year I say I'm not going back to do black friday....and yet, I always end up out shopping And then, family members give me their black friday "want lists" and I end up running all over buying for them too. (I'm from a very LARGE immediate family + large extended families , so stocking up during sales for gift giving ALL year is a must)

This year we have a new lego store, and I can't wait to see what sales they will have!

Although I'm not expecting MASSIVE sales this season, I can't wait to see what the BIG DEALS will be.

I'm not one for lining up at midnight outside the stores and making the mad dash for best items. But more the "go about 2 or 3 AM after the rush" type, and wander around finding all the "treasures", or BIG DEAL items, that others have placed throughout the store!

Well, that settles me staying in for Black Friday this year. Target was the only store I was going to go out for if they had something good as the others are WAY too chaotic. I'll start watching sales now!

As for BF, I used to. Even last year, I braved TRU mad-house and Kohl's. TRU was so not worth it. Kohl's wasn't either especially as they changed their check-out procedure so I can't just pick up some costume jewelry and use the jewelry counter. Wal-Mart I tried one year and never again. It was horrible. So Target is really the only store I go out for now and as they aren't discounting a bunch and we are cutting back anyway plus have all of DH's family in town for Thanksgiving at our house, makes sense to sit this one out. Maybe we'll hit the zoo instead!

That's impressive! I do a lot of shopping online. I don't enjoy shopping anyway so I avoid BF.

I did all my black Friday shopping online last year. We had a wedding to go to that day so just didn't want the hassle. But it really worked out well. We got some great deals. I'm hoping to be done by the 1st of December so I'll probably be mostly done shopping. I was hoping to only hit up Target this year so should be interesting.

I love BF shopping. My mom and I go every year. We don't go for the "hot" items we usually are shopping for clothes, movies, a few toy items but not many. I can't wait for the first ad to leak so I can begin planning our route. We also always hit Old Navy on Thanksgiving to get that store out of the way. My husband is usually sleeping and the boys are helping grandpa make Thanksgiving dinner, and my dd is watching a movie so it works out good and no one misses us.

Honestly, that will probably entice me to shop at Target more this year and avoid the craziness!

This weekend we saw American Girl dog kits at Costco for $22.99. I also saw some of the books there with what looked like accessories for the dolls. I didn't want to linger since I had the girls with me so I'm not sure what was included in the box.

Awesome! My niece has an AG doll she loves and I have Christmas AND her Jan. birthday to buy for. I'll have to keep an eye out for that.

We start with walmart at mindnight, yonkers, jcpennys,dunhams (a time killer), shopko, then kmart! Then if we feel bold we may venture to menards. Around here (small town) menards ends up with lines that are full till 9 am! I find it fun! This year I also have to keep a eye on amazon cause I need a kindle fire (Cheap).
