As usual we are opting to not join in the sadness and are participating in a Black Friday Boycott! Fortunately it appears the trend is starting to reverse itself and more and more stores are seeing the light.
I believe REI has done a great job in espousing their values and have closed all their stores for today. Instead they are encouraging their employee’s and customers instead to opt for outside activities. That is a beautiful thing. More and more stores are opening up the shopping on e-commerce and less on a brick and mortar store.
I will take it one step further and say stop buying so much crap and engage in life. No one needs a discount smart television or another game system no matter the cost savings. Instead follow the steps that we have presented before.
- Do not do any shopping at all.
- Watch or attend a sporting event or go hunting
- Spend time with your family and friends
Now excuse me I have some leftover ham and turkey sandwiches to make a snack during the hike. Join us on our Black Friday Boycott. Enjoy the day outside doing whatever makes you happy!
