Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Holiday Weekend Sales, Pre-Christmas Sales - it’s enough to make you go crazy as a consumer.
But one organization says they have a solution to help you retain your sanity—“Buy Nothing Day," encouraging consumers to instead buck the trends and stay home this Black Friday.
AdBusters, a left-wing, anti-consumerist magazine best known for sparking the Occupy Wall Street protests last year, are no strangers to these kinds of campaigns. Their website also features guides to organized protests like a Credit Card Cut Up, Zombie Walk and Whirl-Mart.
The group claims participants would join “millions of us in over 60 countries on November 23/24.”
Readers, what do you think? Are you staying home this Black Friday, or braving the early morning lines for holiday deals? What do you make of "Buy Nothing Day"?
