I vow to spend not one damned penny on National Rampant Consumerism Friday.
Instead of working, REI is paying workers to go outside on Black Friday.
#optoutside is a downright brilliant idea. It’s visionary, with just a touch of brand marketing (which we’ll politely do our best to ignore.)
Unfortunately, I don’t have any nice scenic views to share with the internet, nor am I the outdoorsy type. But I can totally join in, support, and appreciate the stop-the-madness sentiment.
So instead I’ll spend the day at home, try and churn out some writing, do the kind of thing that makes me feel at ease.
And if it stops raining, who knows, perhaps I’ll even take a little peek at the nature just on the other side of my front door.
I could make this a holiday tradition, I really like this concept!
