Black Friday Alternatives to the Apple Store

Search for electronics recycling locations near your first. Find an e-waste recycling location near you at Eecycle.org.
Remember to recycle batteries as well.
Back Up Files
If you haven’t done it in a while, back up your computer files using an online file storage service or by making back-up disks. Remember to back up digital photos personal files, and your bookmark folders.
Plan a Swap Party
Plan a swap party with a theme. Have kids clean out their toys and have the entire family clean out their clothes. Plan out your swap party to share gently-used items.
Have a Cookie Batter Party
Cookie dough freezes quite well. Make up a couple of batches of all your favorite holiday cookies. Roll the dough into balls, place on a waxed cookie tray and freeze. When the cookie dough balls have frozen completely, remove them and place in an air-tight container.
Pop them out and bake for impromptu holiday visitors, or use them to bake and give away during the holidays. You could also give the container of frozen cookie dough balls to busy folks you know who may appreciate the gesture, as long as you hand-deliver the dough and they put it in the freezer or bake the cookies immediately.
