Making peace with the No
There is a movement you have almost definitely never heard of called Buy Nothing Day. Buy Nothing Day is an anti consumerist holiday on which consumers are urged to, yes, buy nothing. And for some people, spending no money on a single day is sort of a challenge. For others, it might take three days or a week before it starts to feel difficult. One of the objects of Buy Nothing Day is to help consumers be a little more aware of where money goes when it seems to slip through their hands so easily. There are other, decidedly more radical tones and messages, but that one call for mindfulness is something I like.
As for the sales starting on Thanksgiving Day, in a really cynical way, I guess I think it's a good thing. It forces an honest assessment of priorities. Spend Thanksgiving Day with friends and family or rush off to the shops? It wasn't quite a choice before, but now it is. You'd like to think that the family time would win, but later this week, you might just find out where you rank compared to a previous generation Kindle Fire at $100 off of MSRP. to get a jump on the competition?
We are not much of an up before 6 family, but before our December honeymoon a few years back we were in the market for a new point and shoot digital camera and grabbed a doorbuster deal in the first few hours of the Black Friday mayhem. But Black Friday offers a lazier way to save. And, of course, that's what retailers are counting on luring you in with deep price cuts and persuading you, in your hazy deal glee, to buy even more stuff.

to observe occasional buy nothing days and not shopping sprees throughout the year, much like many people slip into and out of diets.
It's on Black Friday. This is patently stupid. It's a losing battle. And it's on a day when consumers can feel like they're actually getting good deals for once, rather than suffering from markups and gouging. Why in the world would you tell anyone not to go buy something they've been wanting, and whose price they've researched and followed, when it's discounted by 30, 50 or 70 percent?
On the other hand, when people can behave themselves and respect their fellow shoppers, store employees and their own budgets, it can be a boon for consumers.
I have a rocky relationship with Black Friday this Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, the most hyped and raucous shopping day of the year. On the one hand, I hate it. When taken as a whole, with its calls for deal hunters to line up in the cold, dark wee hours outside of big box retailers, its bold push into Thanksgiving Day proper, and of course the handful of literal trampling deaths associated with it, it's grotesque and terrifying and possibly asign of the end times.
I do feel badly for store employees asked to work absurd hours on Black Friday or, worse, on Thanksgiving Day. Some folks may not care and some may really appreciate the holiday pay, but there are those who don't want to be there.
