Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends! I hope you get stuffed full of turkey and pumpkin pie! 😀 Then rest up for Black Friday tomorrow! 😉
So it seems like everyone but me will be going out Black Friday shopping this year. *pout* Alas, Black Friday in Canada is less of an event compared to the US anyway. Our Thanksgiving was 6 weeks ago, but we participate in this American Thanksgiving tradition, whereby we have a random day of special sales on a Friday at the end of November. It’s a regular work day for us; our stores don’t open as early, and our sales aren’t as insane as in the US.
But, I have seen a bigger push from retailers to promote Black Friday here in the past few years. The last 3 years I made an effort and went looking for deals on Black Friday. In 2013, I actually took the day off and went shopping! Since I’m not participating in Black Friday (cosmetics-wise) this year, it got me thinking, did I even like the stuff I bought on Black Fridays past? It’s not a good deal if I don’t even use the stuff. Let’s have a look.
