The day after Thanksgiving - Black Friday - marks the official start of the “holiday shopping season” in the US. KDNK's Amy Hadden Marsh reports on a worldwide movement to stop spending lots of money on things we don't need. 

Target is one of 46 major retail chains across the country that will close on Thanksgiving Day this year, including Walmart, Sam's Club, Lowe's, and JCPenney.  Click here for more information on Buy Nothing Day.<--break->

Amy Hadden Marsh has been reporting for KDNK since 2005. She became the host of Valley Voices, a longtime public affairs show, in 2006. She graduated with honors from Regis University with a Masters degree in Investigative Journalism in 2011 and says, "If it weren't for KDNK, I wouldn't have gone to graduate school and changed careers to journalism."
