Black Friday. It is Worth it?

The purpose for Black Friday, the day right after Thanksgiving, is to take advantage of saving money. Waking up super early, probably grabbing some kind of caffeine, and bracing yourself to put up with the crowds. Some people look forward to the thrill of savings! Saving money is all good, but is it worth it?

Is the day labeled Black Friday actually taking place only on the Friday after Thanksgiving? It seems like it isn’t. Black Friday shopping is now taking place earlier in the week, online shopping is more accessible, and curbside shopping eliminates having to be in crowds in the stores. With these changes, are you more likely to partake in Black Friday shopping?
