Stuff

Posted on Friday, November 28th, 2014

Dave!Annnnnd... just bought all my clothes for 2015.

For the past four years I shop for clothing only on Black Friday online sales so I can purchase stuff I ordinarily could not afford (Lucky Brand, Banana Republic, etc.) or to get double the amount of stuff I would normally get (American Eagle, iTunes Cards, etc.). Amazing how putting aside $50 a month nets $600 that has buying power of $1000 to $1200 this one time of year.

Unlike the many, many people who profess to despise Black Friday as a blight on the holiday season and humanity in general... I am happy to publicly embrace this celebration of consumerism gone amuck. Not because I have some vendetta against the holidays (or whatever), but because I like to save piles of money.

Not that I would ever step foot in an actual store today.

I prefer the relative safety of my web browser to the madness of full-contact shopping...

Black Friday is also the time that I cash in all the pocket change I save up the rest of the year (so I have even more cash to spend on deals). It always adds up to a lot more than I'd expect...

Coinstar Machine!

ONE HUNDRED SEVENTY-TWO DOLLARS AND SIXTY-SEVEN CENTS?! How do I accumulate that much coinage?

Fair warning... CoinStar does not accept foreign monies (or penis salad buttons) as legal tender...

Coinstar Machine!

Annnnnd... now that I've spent all my money, I suppose it's time to get back to work.

So I can earn money for next year.

It's a viscious circle, yo.

    You not only have discipline, you also know how to get a good deal. My CoinStar money always ends up going onto my Starbucks card or into an Amazon gift card.

    And good to know I should remove my penis salad Blogography button from my Crown Royal coin bag before heading to the CoinStar.

    Seems odd to me that in a post regarding being thrifty you show that you use a coinstar machine. Don’t they charge a 10% fee? So it cost you $17 for the machine to tell you you had $170? Can you not use a bank for that? I know many branches have been closed but still…

    :)

  4. I went to a mall at the wee hours of Black Friday once. I will never be doing that again.
