This Friday is Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving in the US that has become the biggest shopping day of the year.
But while many fight it out in the aisles, there are alternative ways to spend your day
Want to join them? Here are some ideas for alternatives to Black Friday:
- This Friday, The Wild Network is challenging us to #OptOutside and get some #WildTime as an antidote to the spendathon of the busy shopping day. Here are ten ways to get outside.
- How about making Christmas the homemade way? Head to our Pinterest board for some handmade decoration ideas, or turn to page 30 of the December issue for more.
- The Simple Things Sunday Best campaign celebrates quiet ways to reconnect with friends, family and home. Try one of our ideas.
- If you are shopping, opt for local, independent makers rather than the big stores. It really makes a difference. (The Stuff of Life shops stocks beautiful, individual, handcrafted and vintage items from independent merchants, curated for you by the The Simple Things shopkeeper.)
