I’m not sure if any of you go Black Friday or sales shopping this weekend! I do not leave the house on Black Friday. I think it’s sad that it’s earlier and earlier each year; and that workers can barely take a holiday without having to go back to work right after. Also, I’m not fond of crowds, or just BIG shopping in general. We try to keep winter holidays as small as possible in terms of gifts but big on family and togetherness.
That said, I have bought one or two things the last few years, online (in my PJ’s, LOL), from one or two crunchy companies. So, I am just saying.. I have some reservations but I may occasionally buy a thing of two with a click of a button. I usually try to wait until Small Business Saturday or Cyber Monday. You won’t, however, find me lined up around the block for ANY deal at 5 am on Black Friday morning or even after dinner on Thanksgiving. In fact, iImake it a point not to leave the house.
I’ve heard a lot of people asking, where are the holistic/crunchy online deals this year? So, I thought I’d make a list of some of my favorite crunchy companies… maybe it’s helpful to some of you… if not, I completely support your decision to veg out after Thanksgiving and not go shopping. Truthfully, I hate shopping in general. Unless it comes to my house in a box… then I admit I’m kinda into it, haha! I’ve noted where you can wait until the weekend if you want to make your stand against the Friday aspect… if so, I totally stand behind you.
