One more day until Turkey day! Can you tell I like countdowns? I do them for everything and I think it drives a few people nuts. Minus my Mom. My Mom loves countdowns as much as I do.
Whenever I think of Thanksgiving I can’t help but think of Black Friday. I’ve only participated in the Black Friday festivities once and I vowed to never do it again. Some lady ran over my foot with her double stroller (no kids, just bags) and said “Eh. You were in the way.” I knew then that I was not meant to save money and be a part of this tradition.
Then a few years ago Cyber Monday came about. I was a little more on board with this because I could participate from the comfort of my home. But it was stressful and I quickly realized that I wasn’t meant for this cutthroat online shopping world either.
Now, for the 2nd year in a row, Small Business Saturday is being promoted. This is an event I can totally get behind!
On Saturday I will be gladly giving my money over to local businesses to help support my community and finish up some Christmas shopping.
I think this is what we would call a “Win-Win” situation! You can he
Tomorrow I’ll be taking the day off from blogging to spend the day driving The Scientist and Korky nuts. I’ll be back on Friday with the results of my first Thanksgiving dinner! Eek.
Do you participate in Black Friday festivities? Will you participate in Small Business Saturday?
