Are you a Black Friday shopper?
Last year 225 million people went shopping the day after Thanksgiving. That’s one in three Americans. Some of them camped out overnight and missed Thanksgiving with their family in the name of a good deal.
Now, I love a bargain, but I have to ask- Is our time really worth Black Friday’s deals? Is there anything we can buy on Black Friday that we can’t buy, if we really need it, on another day? Is a deal really a deal when we put ourselves in the least enjoyable shopping environment there is?

It wasn’t until we spent 9 months living in my parent’s basement that I realized how much light affects me. I’d never experienced “typical” seasonal affective disorder during the winter, but looking back, it’s clear that I fell into a depression from the lack of sunlight during that season, despite our attempts to get outside regularly and spend time upstairs.
