On your mark, get set, GO!!!!!



Friday, Nov. 24, "Black Friday" - the day retailers sell enough to put their ledgers "in the black" - kicks off the holiday shopping season.

Stores will open early and will close late.

How do shoppers survive the crowds, sore feet, fatigue and mania of finding the perfect gift for everyone on their lists?

How do the men and women behind the store counters survive the same things?

What works for you? How do you keep your sanity, your budget and the spirit of the season in your heart?

If you're a shopper or if you work in retail, we'd like to hear from you.

Tell us your tips and we'll share them on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 23.
