Got Black Friday Shopping Secrets?

Put your Black Friday shopping ideas in the comment section below, and Patch will share the best of them Thursday morning. Ready, set, shop!

Black Friday begins at 8 p.m. Thanksgiving Thursday for north and northwest suburban Chicago shoppers and Patch wants to know your plan.

Will you head to Toys R Us or Walmart at 8 p.m. Thursday before or after the Thanksgiving dishes are done? Target opens an hour later and will have more than 24 hours of continuous shopping.

How will you take advantage of the deals at both places?

Will you navigate from Toys R Us or Walmart to Macy’s at midnight to ensure you're not too far behind in line for the best bargains?

Does your plan include a partnership? Will you trade lists with a friend and then become a placeholder while someone shops for you? Will you have a thermos of coffee or hot chocolate?

Will you eat your Thanksgiving dessert while waiting in line to shop?

These are some of our thoughts. Share your with us!

Share your plan with your fellow readers in the comment section below.

Here's what people are saying on the Palatine Patch Facebook page: *There is no need to get so carried away like some people are by sleeping in line for days. Just be a little early at Walmart or the store you choose and be kind, just a little kindness and a smile will go a long way. My guy works at Walmart and he likes his customers and co-workers. *Yes..how about this: REFUSE to go shopping on Thanksgiving night. I will not take my business to a retailer that won't even give their employees a mere 24 hours off to have a holiday with their family. What do you think?

Not sure about all of you, but after eating Thanksgiving dinner, my desire is to snooze from all the food - not shop!
