There may be some good deals to be had today but you don’t actually save money by buying stuff you don’t need. I’m guessing that approximately 100% of the stuff being bought as part of the Black Friday deals can be classified as wants rather than needs. I’m lucky that there is very little I want or need.
I only have one more Christmas purchase to make and I’m not going to be doing it today. The GF and me might go by CVS later and take advantage of some of the “free deals.” Technically we will be shopping on Black Friday but we will not be spending any money.
