Don’t let the hype of ‘official’ shopping days send common sense out the window.
Minnesota consumer advocates and state officials have two words for shoppers who can’t wait for Black Friday and Cyber Monday: Be careful. “For people trying to find holiday deals, Black Friday and Cyber Monday hold a lot of allure,” says Dana Badgerow, president and CEO of the Better Business Bureau (BBB) of Minnesota and North Dakota. “What we’re aiming to do is remind people to think ahead, make a budget, be aware of store policies—particularly return policies—and not get so focused on potential bargains [that] they fall victim to scams or fraudulent websites.” Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, is traditionally known as the official kickoff of the holiday shopping season.

Every weekday Vi and I grab the bus to school, I drop her off, and I get her again once the bell rings. While her father and The Bass are still at work and daycare, we have a couple of hours every afternoon to simply hang out together, having a snack, reading stories, and doing a little cartoon-watching while I make dinner.
