From White Friday to Giving Tuesday: Other Ways to Celebrate After Thanksgiving

×

Black FridayFirst, there was Thanksgiving. Just Thanksgiving, with some pilgrims, and Native Americans, and a turkey. Then came Black Friday. And then Cyber Monday. And now we seem to have White Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Giving Tuesday, as well.

It's enough to make your head spin, but if you approach this busy week armed with information, resources, and a plan -- which we provide here -- you can end up saving, spending, and giving more effectively than you ever imagined.

Small Business Saturday and Giving Tuesday are possibly the best thing to come out of the shopping season since Mr. Macy sent shoppers to Gimbels. http://heresheisboys.com/2012/11/24/on-the-second-day-of-shopping/

Today isn't no different than any other day, just because some crazy people like to go out and spend money on things they don't need doesn't mean I plan on joining them. There isn't anything I need that cannot wait another day, if you know how to shop you should have no problems finding the same so called black Friday deals everyday of the year not just today.

Your therapist must be on speed dial, if he isn't, he or she should be. Are you a pshycotic islamic terrorist by any chance, because you sound really creepy and possible of some dangerous things?

We never shop Thanksgiving wknd. It is too crazy. Stores here in FL have been offering this weekend sales early...so we have been shopping in peace and will finish after the weekend. For those that are sitting in line at Best Buy and other stores (since Mon. here) ...Good luck to everyone! Happy Thanksgiving!

Giving Tuesday? How about "giving every other Friday" as in the taxes taken out of my check that go towards supporting all the dirty animals on welfare?
