Consumerism is getting a little out of hand
I saw on the news where folks were already camping out for some of the Black Friday sales – on Sunday, a solid five days before the sales start.
These people are giving up hours and days of their lives, choosing to camp outside a store – many times in cold weather – all for the sake of saving money? I’m no economist*, but it just doesn’t seem worth it.
*Seriously, I’m not. In college, my major required me to take a basic Econ course. I was so bad at it that I got to take it twice. That is one of the many reasons I was lucky to marry a “numbers girl” who loves financial stuff.
Without her, I’m likely retiring to the comfort of a cardboard box while trying to sell my kidneys on Craigslist. There’s a reason this site isn’t FeitCanFixFinances, people.
