Black Friday is, no doubt, one of It’s on Sunday, Nov. 22.
the most chaotic days of the year. I’m going to buy my mom a $50 From eating turkey to standing skillet for $20.
in line for hours on end to save a buck, I plan to buy it with the points I
the events can get out of hand.
Some may say it’s not worth it, but

If I find a good deal and I have no use for it, or anyone to gift it to, I donate it to my church or the homeless.
