Black Friday Or Not?

Do you get up in the wee hours of the morning to save a few dollars? I don't but my hubby does, every year! He doesn't just do it to save money, for him it's more about the energy that comes from the retail experience. He has a long history in the retail industry, primarily being the one preparing all the treasures you are getting there so early to gobble up.

I'm not big on the material part of Christmas. I love baking cookies, decorating the house, sending and receiving Christmas cards, and gathering with friends. Of course, I love getting Mason the thing he's pining for that shows up under the tree from Santa, but I'm not big on so many gifts he can't tell you what he actually got.

Here's what I'm proposing; why don't we all spend this holiday season simplifying our idea of Christmas? I'm going to spend all of December sharing ideas on how you can get back to basics, enjoy this season with little or no money, and most importantly, show the people you love how you feel without a box of candles, shower gel, or a campy make-up set. Join me and share your ideas for feeling more this holiday and ringing in the new year on a high note!

I join you. I would take a heartfelt, handmade gift over an overpriced shower gel any day.
I don't do the Black Friday sales because I'd rather sleep in, but I know a lot of people who love the tradition.
