Amazon sent me an email in October with the headline “The countdown to Black Friday.” I deleted it. I did not want to think about Black Friday before Halloween. I do not, actually, want to think about gift shopping at all.
This week I’m over on Sorta Crunchy with a post about surviving the sensory overwhelm of shopping during the holiday season, whether you are after gifts or just groceries. If you an introvert, are highly sensitive, or have ever walked into a store and felt like you wanted to walk right back out, this post is for you.
