Opting Outside


REI started this social media trend of doing outdoor activities the day after Thanksgiving instead of Black Friday shopping, known as #OptOutside! I love it! I have never been interested in Black Friday shopping. I am not a big fan of crowds, unless I am at a concert or Disney World, so the whole ordeal just sounds tortuous to me. Honestly, I would rather spend more than fight the madness!

I also don’t like to feel pressured to buy things I do not really need because they are on sale. I do not like how the holidays are all about shopping and presents and buying this or that. Give me experiences

As I head back home from the football game this morning, I am not entirely sure what this day holds – but I am determined to do something outside. I have work to do, so I am not sure that I will be able to ride this afternoon but I should be able to at least take my dog on a walk through the woods before it gets dark. Or, hey, maybe I will take my work outside!

What about you? Do you go shopping on Black Friday, or opt outside? Either way, I hope you have a great day!
