Ah, the age old tradition of camping out all night just to get a brand new TV!

It’s not exactly our idea of fun, but there are plenty of people out there gearing up for the Black Friday madness.

Some of you are even skipping out early on Thanksgiving dinner with the family so you can get in line! Add to that some pushing, shoving, and angry mobs and things could get out of hand quickly.

With that in mind, Carson wanted to know: what the heck are you buying that’s so important?

Tons of you called in earlier this week telling us the best deals in town.

What’s got you lining up in the freezing cold on Thursday night? Nicole in Anaheim told us Best Buy is selling the iPad 2 for $500. That’s a savings of $45.

Not too shabby, but wouldn’t you rather win one for FREE during our AMP Radio’s iPad Tag? (Yes, this is a shameless plug!)

Perhaps one of our favorite callers was Cola, the self-proclaimed leader of the Black Friday Mafia! We didn’t even know that existed!

Last year, we did almost start a riot because Walmart didn’t have their stuff together! We camp out. I bring my travel Scrabble board. We eat snacks. We make friends. We have fun and we get the great deals. We’re there from like 9 at night until 7 in the morning.

Now that’s dedication!

Cola and her 9 buddies are planning to mobilize at Walmart again to get the post-Thanksgiving steals.

Take a listen to what she’s got on her shopping list:

I mean seriously, a waffle maker for just $2.84! That’s almost enough to get us out of bed at 2am…almost.
