Exploration 7-Nick Bogdue

The 100% off black friday sale
This article was about how Mr. Money Mustache doesn't think you need to spend a lot of money to have a good time on the holidays, or anytime really. He talked about how a lot of expensive things we get for christmas we don't really even need. He also talked about how him and his family do things a little differently compared too most families. Once a week they have family movie night, and every once in a while they do a "blackout." This consists of the Mr. money Mustache and his family totally shutting off all electronics, phones, computers, etc., and just live without all that for a while. A lot of families now would go crazy if they did this, so it's really interesting to hear that Mr. Money Mustache and his family do this!

One thing I didn't really like about this article was that I thought it was kind of all over the place, and his thoughts didn't seem very organized. "Every Friday the arrival of the weekend is celebrated with Family Movie Night." This was kind of random, and didn't really have a transition. He went from talking about spending money during the holidays, straight into this. One thing I did like about this article was the message that it sent. He talked about how people are spending too much, and are too focused on getting things they don't need. He said that you shouldn't have to spend a lot on the holidays in order to have a good one, and I think this is very true. "A simpler Christmas is a grander Christmas!"

I loved the writing style for this article, and I am almost 100% sure that's why Mr. Money Mustache is so popular. He has a way of saying things that draws you in, and makes you want to read more. He integrates some humor into his writing, and this keeps you interested. He also has some good information, and has a way of telling us in a non boring way. I think he draws a younger crowd, because he swears a lot, and really isn't afraid to express his feelings on the subject. I think the older generation may find this not so appealing, but I think a younger crowd would love it.
