Happy buy nothing day

It is Fridays and Fridays are for fun. Most people have heard of Black Friday but have you heard of Buy Nothing Day? The day after Thanksgiving is also International Buy Nothing Day. Buy nothing day has been around since 1992 but it doesn’t get much attention.

It is also Free Park Friday at all Minnesota State Parks. Our state parks are lovely places to go and buy nothing.

Black Friday should be epic this year. Unemployment is low and people seem to be generally optimistic about the economy. I can totally understand why people are out taking advantage of the Black Friday sales.

I’ll be celebrating buy nothing day because I can. I’ll spend part of the day planning how I’ll give gifts to family and friends this year without buying anything new.
