Black Friday has become an event unlike any other. Throngs of desperate shoppers rush around and elbow eachother in long lines, before the sun rises in freezing weather – just to wate their money. We cannot think of anything less enjoyable to do with your time off, let alone the holidays. Here is a list of 10 better things to do on Black Friday other then shopping.
10 Better Things To Do On Black Friday Then Shop
Spend Time With Family
This is what the holidays are really about right? Spending time together with the ones we love the most in the world. So why not skip the shopping lines and go for the good stuff, spending some quality time with your family!
Binge Your Favorite Netflix Show
We don’t usually get a lot of time off so if you have an uninterrupted day you can spend the entire day on the couch watching your favorite Netflix shows! Catch up on new stuff or watch your favorites over again! There’s no wrong way to spend the day with Netflix 🙂
Hit the Gym
Make the most of your time off. You can get in a workout and enjoy the day feeling great about yourself and all you’ve accomplished while most people are just shoveling in the leftovers or rushing around spending money!
If you don’t want to go shopping on Black Friday you can spend your time a little more wisely by volunteering. There are so many great places that would love a little bit of your time during this busy holiday season. Everything from pets to needy seniors!
Go to the Movies
There are a lot of great movies coming out so you can take in a movie or two with your day off instead of rushing through crowds of angry shoppers!
See Your Friends
What good is a day off if you don’t get to see your friends?! The holidays are here and it’s the best time of year to spend time with your friends doing anything or nothing at all!
Play Board Games
You know what’s fun?! Old school game night! It’s less hectic than the crowds of Black Friday shoppers and it’s even better than spending all of your money on junk you don’t need! Set up a game night and you can spend time with friends and family at the same time!
Sit Quietly in the Dark
Let’s face it, when it comes to better things to do…you could sit quietly in the dark by yourself and still be ahead of the game. It’s never a bad time for a nap right?!
Go for a Hike
Get out there and get some fresh air. A lot of us have been seeing some great fall weather so take advantage of that enjoy the great outdoors.
Catch up on Sleep
Last but definitely not least we have sleep…who couldn’t use some extra hours of sleep?! You won’t get that while out running around all crazy and crowded shopping for more stuff! Take your extra time off to enjoy a little bit of extra sleep.
