    11 Ways to OWN Thanksgiving and Black Friday

    It’s the season of giving thanks! We love this time of year, and we know you do, too. So, that said, we want to help you make THIS Thanksgiving the BEST ever. How so, you ask? Well, read on….

     

    1. Go onto Pinterest and type in “Thanksgiving leftover recipes.” Leftover yams? There is a pancake recipe for that! You’re welcome.

     

    2. Read a non-digital book. Yes, throwback-style. In fact, pick out the book, snap a photo of it and use hashtag #tbt to be all hip and cool.

     

    3. Rather than ignore the football game, sit down and ask your brother, dad, cousin or even your mom (some women love football, too!) about the sport.

     

    4. Skip Black Friday and spend that time completely alone with God instead. Trust us, it’s hard. But it’s WAY worth it. Plus, the best sales are online now.

     

    5. Don’t just Snapchat your friends—invite them over to share pie. Because sharing is caring.

     

    6. Learn HOW to cut the turkey! This is a skill that is needed in our world.

     

    7. Run a 5K, 10K or 12K, or just walk. You’re going to be eating a ton, so you might as well get some fitness in to offset that, right?

     

    8. Start a Netflix marathon of a TV show and just chill. First, no crowds. Second, no money spent. Third, leftovers! (See #1.)

     

    9. Have a real conversation with your grandparents. Meaning, ask them about your heritage.

     

    10. Create a list of what you’re thankful for, post it online and tag friends who helped you OWN this year.

     

    11. Bust out the Christmas music, because it’s the season now!

     

    Which of these are you planning on doing this year?

    1. Um just wondering but why do you have to pick the one day when the biggest savings of the year are on to be completely alone with God? I’m pretty sure he wont mind if you’re alone with him on Saturday lol after all diligent is frugal and the diligent shall inherit the earth!

    2. #2 – I actually prefer real, paper books! The only time I read digital is on vacation because it is hard to haul around enough books for me (I read really fast).

      #3 – I live in Michigan, so I glance at the Lions game every once in a while on Thanksgiving. I have to be honest, I have had football explained to me so many times and I don’t think I will ever get it. However, I have a friend (a girl) who is obsessed with football and so I am happy for her that the Lions won.

      #7 – for the first time maybe ever, I didn’t get sick on Thanksgiving from eating too much! My brother and I did a “challenge” together to only eat one helping of everything and then actually eat dinner later 🙂

      #10 – I love making thankful lists! Here is one:
