Black Friday Is The New Thanksgiving

Ciao Tutti,
I know you probably thought this blog post was going to be about Black Friday shopping and, deals however, it is not. I have been hearing commercials about stores open on Thanksgiving and, to come in early to avoid the crowds. I must say these ads have thoroughly disappointed me. I understand opening the stores at 9 or 10 p.m. because people who are on there way home from Thanksgiving dinner can stop off at a store if they want something but, why is it so important to be open during the day? It makes me sad that we can’t just focus on hanging out with our loved ones, chatting, catching up and, just enjoying each others company. Instead, stores have taken it a step up and, decided they are going to interrupt one day that we get to relax with one another. It begs the question has black Friday become more important than Thanksgiving? Please let me know what you think in the comments. Thank you for all the lovely comments I have been receiving on my posts, I am truly grateful to have all of you on here. Please let me know if there is a topic you want me talk about in the comments below.
Have an enlightening and adventurous day,
allie

Ciao Tutti,

I have been doing some research on saving especially when your money comes is sporadically like mine and, I don’t have a set income each month. I’m still building up Amazon and, working on my ebooks. I thought with the holidays coming up this would be a perfect time to start saving big time! I have a few holiday meals that I will testing off of Pinterest in the next three as, I anticipate Christmas. You many not celebrate Christmas like I do but, maybe want some holiday yummy recipes that are inexpensive. There are 20 appetizers, sides, main courses, and desserts that I am going to be making on a very tight budget. Now I already planned ahead a bit and bought a bit in bulk for my cashews, dates, nutritional yeast and, mixed dried fruits. I figured these would be the most expensive items to acquire. I think I have spent about $100 for all these products. I am giving myself a $300 which means I only have $200 left. I am going test all of these Pinterest recipes to see if they make the cut while staying on budget. This is going to be a challenge but, I am thrilled. I will have all my grocery bills on here as well as, all of the foods that I am attempting to make. I am very excited! Stay updated with my Frugal shopper posts by subscribing and, being part of the email alerts from my blog; you will get emailed every-time I post a new blog! You will never miss a post. Let the holiday festivities begin!

Have an enlightening and adventurous day,

allie
