The Minimalist's Alternative to Black Friday

I've never actually participated in Black Friday. For me, it's always just been the day after Thanksgiving and involves avoidance more than anything. This year, I've decided to partake in a proactive alternative. Between episodes of Gilmore Girls, I am challenging myself to spend the day sorting through my belongings and packing up a great deal of them to donate, sell, or throw away. It's a task that can be fairly time consuming, so what better day to begin than on the one day that is otherwise dedicated to materialism and excessive spending?
