Black Friday musings
May be it is the Alaska weather or I am more a Cyber Monday gal, but I never set the alarm clock to wait hours in line for the start of Black Friday. Maybe it’s also about avoiding the stress of being in a big crowd. Yes, I am on a fashion budget like most women are. However, I have a trick to stay within my budget on Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
Road conditions are a good excuse to not hit the mall
Of course, it is convenient that Black Friday is a university holiday. So I could go. But in about 1.5 foot of snow and with non-plowed roads, the words Sale 50% off are blown in the wind despite there is none.
Walk the cyber mall without your “check out finger”
Instead I make a virtual walk thru the cyber mall wearing gray camouflage men’s PJ pants, a long sleeve black T-shirt and an Alaska style Buffalo plaid jacket while sipping a French roast coffee brewed by my hubby. <3 Not only is the coffee better, as long as I don’t hit checkout I can fill my basket til I drop. Another advantage, I stay warm, and don’t have to schlep the bags. Doing so is what I call having fun with fashion over 40 without regret. 😉
Only buy when the item still is on your mind on Cyber Monday
What happens with these great finds? I keep them in the basket. If I still can’t stop thinking about them, on Cyber Monday they will find a place in my closet to make a nice work outfit like in the photos of today’s post or just for having fun with fashion. 😉 I love virtually browsing the stores.When you can't stop thinking about an item after 24 h, get it! Otherwise, forget it! Click To Tweet
