Black Friday is a double-edged sword: Big savings sound so amazing, but at the same time, you don't really want to spend money. (Though it's ridiculously tempting to get that cute $200 jacket if it's on sale for $50 — talk about a bargain!) It can be pretty hard to distract yourself from the holiday frenzy going on around you, but there are a few things to do on Black Friday that aren't shopping, if you're broke AF.
As much as unlimited spending for the season would be a dream come true, the reality is that the holidays can be pretty rough for my fellow #GirlBosses out there who are trying to budget. But luckily for you, there are a lot of options of things to do instead of going shopping if you're saving your coin for a different day.
Outside of being broke, I personally think that Black Friday is a huge exercise in self-control. It can be really difficult to not buy things when they're being offered for so much cheaper than they normally are. But a huge part of truly #adulting is knowing how and when to spend your money. So if you're looking through all of the marketing emails that are piling up in your inbox, turn off your notifications and focus on these activities instead.
