Be sure to set aside some of your Black Friday shopping dollars for Small Business Saturday. This effort organized by American Express, Facebook and others is a great way to get folks to shop at their local small businesses. The big box stores will get plenty of action on Black Friday so consider reserving some of your holiday budget for a locally owned and operated small business. As an added bonus, if you go to the Small Business Saturday Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/SmallBusinessSaturday , register your American Express card and spend $25 at a participating local small business, AMEX will give you a $25 credit on your next statement. That's free money just for spending it locally.  Even if you don't have an American Express card, join the effort and make Saturday a banner day for our hard working locally owned and operated retailers. There are 166 Genesee County small businesses currently registered on the site so there are plenty to choose from.  Shop local, Save local, $25 free credit.  Win, Win, Win.

My grandson, Scotty,  was determined to be the first person in line at Sports Authority in Jensen Beach, Fl.  He was awarded $10 for being the first in line when they opened the doors.

Too bad he wasn't last in line, that person got $500.
