November 26th Shopping Reminder Day

Like we really need this, a shopping reminder day. Some call it “Black Friday”, others call it the day after Thanksgiving, some call it a day to sleep. Now if you are busy you might need to be reminded to shop for loved ones and friends. This is, however, a very important day to retail shops. With most people shopping on line these days, stores really need the business. So maybe this should be Shopping At A Store Reminder Day. I think there may come a time when there are no stores, which may be acceptable to many but we must remember those working at the stores and the store owners themselves. So get busy shopping. If you are famous you may want a disguise.

How to celebrate – Go shopping. Dress up like Santa and go shopping. Get a newspaper to study the sales.

In case you hadn’t noticed, Christmas is coming soon. You need to get shopping! And that’s why today was created, to remind you that you need to go shopping. And this isn’t your normal shopping reminder day… you know, the grocery shopping day… no, this is the go out and spend beyond your budget day reminder.

The good thing about this reminder day is hat if you treat it as it deserves, you don’t need to worry about any others days set to remind you to go shopping… you won’t have any money left to go shopping with!

But seriously, it’s all about giving. It’s giving to the credit card company, the bank, the loan officers… you get the point. Actually if you haven’t gone shopping yet, this is your reminder. Not me, not this blog, the day.  I realize there is little else out there to remind you. The sale signs, the newspaper ads, the commercials.

So give in and go shopping already! Buy your friends, family and mail-person a gift they will never forget. And neither will you since you will still be paying for it maybe for-ever. You can actually shop within your budget… naw, not really but it’s fun to think that way!

In a number of ways, this is a good thing. With retailers suffering because of online dales, this is a day that helps keep their doors open. Soon, there may be nothing but online shopping and you will only have small pictures on the internet to choose those things that may, or may not, please your whim.
