Black Friday – the day to shop till you drop. The discounts are usually crazy. Sadly this year, things are different. You can forget the excited, angry mobs baying for discount blood at the gates of shopping malls and stores. With any luck, you’ll be sitting at home screaming at your screen and weighing the pros and cons of same-day shipping.
Unlike yesteryears when Black Friday was a single day, this year it’s month-long (unofficially). Lots of amazing deals to pick from too.
The Black Friday Cocktail should help calm your nerves as you scroll through the deals and wonder whether you can afford that chiffon sweater or the PS5.
Shopping must go on. Unless…do we even need Black Friday? Isn’t it just a contrived, baseless day to get you to spend your hard-earned money (in the middle of a pandemic with a heavy economic toll moreover) on stuff you don’t really need and with money you barely have? Sip some Black Friday Cocktail as you ponder that and realize that Bezos is worth almost $200B 😉
