I have never been a fan of Black Friday. To me, there is nothing more important than spending time with family, and holiday time should be sacred and left alone. It truly does bother me that Black Friday has become Black Thanksgiving and so many people are skipping meals with their families because they have to be at work to accommodate the masses. I’ve heard the argument that maybe those people shouldn’t work retail in the first place, but I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but the job market is tough. And sure, maybe they should be thankful that they are employed, but there should still be boundaries.
Unless you’re in the business of saving lives, I don’t see why anyone should work on Thanksgiving Day.
I’m not judging you if you do Black Friday to score good deals… good for you. But I’m not a fan. And honestly, I hit the same deals on Black Friday online and especially on Cyber Monday from the comfort of my couch.
Yes, from the comfort of my couch.
Cyber Monday is where it’s at, ya’ll! And my absolute favorite place to shop for Cyber Monday deals is Amazon.com (surprise, surprise). Amazon’s Cyber Monday special starts TOMORROW and runs through December 6. Click the link below to check out what they have. They usually do deals of the day and of the week, so you might need to check in daily. I typically do almost all of my Christmas shopping through Amazon – I always have. I do enjoy going out and shopping for people, but I get stressed out by the crowds. I guess that’s the introvert in me…
