Hey mama. This is Mama’s Daily Dose. I’m Meghan Q Barrett of allyoumama.com. Happy Friday, even though maybe it feels like a Friday, maybe it doesn’t. I get so lost after Thanksgiving, I’m full, I needed a nap, maybe a glass or two of wine that I shouldn’t have drank after. But you know what, it’s all an experience. And it’s all worth it. And I hope you had a fabulous Thanksgiving. And today is Black Friday. And I don’t know about you, but I have enough stuff. In my house, my kids have more stuff than they know what to do with. So on this Black Friday, I want to think a little bit more about experiences than stuff. Mamas daily dose is… Black Friday experiences. Lets get moving before we get interrupted.
Black Friday, a great American tradition, I guess, depending on how you look at it. I mean, I love a great deal, just like the next person. But I also don’t want to spend my day after Thanksgiving shopping, looking for the best deal. Like, that’s just not my idea of fun. And as I said in the intro, we have enough stuff. Maybe there’s a couple things I’m looking for the deal for but really, we don’t need any more stuff. What I really want to focus on is the experiences and the memories that I’m making with my friends, with my family with my kids, whomever it may be. So even if you are going out today and looking for a great deal, what’s the experience that you can have with it, like I have a girlfriend that every year, she would go into San Francisco with her sister and her mom and they’d go shop the Black Friday deals. That was a whole experience for them. It wasn’t just about getting the stuff. It was the experience involved in it. So think today about how you can get something out of the experience and not just the deal.
