Buy Nothing Day?

Buy Nothing Day (Friday, November 27th) is upon us again. Once again people are going to be out in large numbers, way too early in the morning the day after Thanksgiving just to get a deal. Is it really worth it?

The concept of “Buy Nothing Day” is lost on us so instead I propose the people make it “Buy Local Day”. Ideally we would fold that dollar back up and put it back in our wallets, but most of us know that will not happen. I say if we are going to spend money should it not be on something that will creating a lasting effect for our local economy and money that will stay within our communities.
