13 Posters: Buy Nothing Day. 13 Things to Do instead of "Black Friday."

Here are three things I suggest you do on Buy Nothing Day/Black Friday.

It's the biggest shopping day of the year. Nothing's wrong with shopping -- if what you're buying has meaning and purpose. So if you have to buy something, make it life-changing.

2. If you are going to buy gifts, shop local.

3. And if you aren't going to buy anything, practice fundamental happiness and contentment with a loved one.
