It used to be Black Friday was a one-day shopping event that happened the day after Thanksgiving. This year it seems like sales advertised as Black Friday deals started happening back in October! So far I haven't succumbed to the massive advertising blitz for all of these great tech deals (although I am looking at a new cell phone but it really doesn't make sense to spend $1000 on a new cell phone when I rarely use the cell phone I have as I only use it for calls, texts, and taking pictures). In other news:
- If your turkey is still in the freezer it should probably come out now and start defrosting. Hubby and I are having our usual small dinner; we bought a few thick slices of turkey at a local deli today and I will make the sides on Thursday.
- If you encounter a turkey emergency, you can always call the Turkey Talk Line for help.
- A quick money saving tip: stock up on stamps before the price goes up. They last forever so this is a great way to save a bit of money.
- If you are into genealogy, Roots Tech has an upcoming conference in March that is free to attend online.
- A quick reminder about all of the things homeowner's insurance doesn't cover.
- And a quick safety reminder about not mixing cleaning products.
- I'm debating whether I should delete all of my social media next year or not. It seems like ALL social media is so utterly invasive, manipulative, and a prime source for data harvesting that I'm not sure the benefits are worth the huge loss of privacy. Anyway, here is a place to start if you are also concerned about this.
- Finally I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
