Molly Gasiewicz asks: Why battle the sale-crazed masses when you could take advantage of SmartPak’s Thanksgiving weekend sale from the comfort of your own home?
First of all, what’s with the name “Black Friday”? sounds so dark and ominous… I’d like to put an EN spin on it and how about “Dapple Grey Friday”, “Dark Bay Friday”, or maybe even “Paint Friday”? Because y’all know you probably have a shopping list that consists of 1/4 items for yourself and 3/4 items for your significant other…. or “horse” as the general public would call them.
The other part of this whole charade which utterly perplexes me is this: why on earth would anyone want to deal with all those people in a crowded, tossled department store?
I mean I get it, when everything in the store is 50% off, it’s worth the chaos… I guess… but really it just seems like a ton of work for a discount. I keep hearing commercials that go like this: “doors open at Midnight Thursday, so don’t miss out.” I say: you crazy – the only thing I’ll be doing at midnight Thursday is passing out with a big ole’ turkey coma.
But here’s my conundrum: as much as I can moan and groan in a blog about how I don’t like Dapple Grey Friday and hate the crowd and lines – I still have A LOT of holiday shopping to do, and I have A LOT of necessities to stock up on now that the season has come to an end.
So what’s a girl to do? And here comes the anxiety…
Luckily, I’ve found something I like to call “SmartFriday”. Yup, came up with it alllll myself: SmartPak – the Pak + Friday =SmartFriday. Ta da!
Thankfully, SmartPak understands my full belly and lazy state of mind the day after Thankgiving so they could help a girl out by offering up some horsey discounts so I can set the anxiety aside and set forth towards a successful holiday shopping experience.
So don’t forget to shop smartpak.com for all your holiday needs on SmartFriday because they’ll be offering 10% off all orders over $150 and free shipping. Plus, this isn’t one of those one-day-only stress makers…the sale runs through Monday, 11/26!
