Did you know that Wisconsin banned the sale and use of margarine from 1895 to 1967? Moreover, despite a 2011 effort to remove them, some notorious margarine-related restrictions remain in Wisconsin It is illegal for a restaurant to serve margarine as a butter substitute unless specifically requested. The law also  prohibits servers from providing margarine to schoolchildren, prisoners, and hospital patients unless a doctor has ordered otherwise.

Under Wisconsin Statutes Section 146.085, the “owner or manager of any public building” may not allow “an admission fee to be charged for the use of any toilet compartment.”

The Best Things To Buy On Black Friday Sales & The Worst Things To Buy On Black Friday Sales

If you’re in need of a new laptop, desktop, gaming PC or tablet, Black Friday is the time to upgrade. Apple products will be on sale at retailers like Best Buy. Apple will offer gift cards with purchase (no discounts). Plus, Dell, Lenovo and HP will all be dropping online doorbusters the entire weekend. These electronics sale events can be tough to navigate, so check out tech retailers’ Black Friday ads in advance to see what’s dropping and when.

Often, the lowest doorbuster prices will be on machines with weak specs. However, because the price is already lower than usual, you can use that “extra” money to upgrade your storage and processing power. Need a new tablet? Tablets are among the best Black Friday buys. Check out Best Buy and Target — iPad deals on Black Friday are practically inevitable at both. And check out Amazon’s deals on its own products (Fire tablets and Kindles).

It might be hard to believe there’s a bad buy to be had on Black Friday. And it’s true that almost everything is on sale. However, there are a few products that it’s smart to skip or buy at another time of year. You’ll find clothing deals aplenty on Black Friday. But these deals are often offered on specific items, rather than across the board (although, last year, we did see some pretty healthy sitewide promo codes).

Regardless of the strength of the discounts, there’s no rush to buy clothing on Black Friday. You’ll find some furniture deals in major retailers’ Black Friday ads — and furniture stores will offer their own sales. But, unless you absolutely need to replace that sectional, bed or dining room table, there’s no reason you absolutely must shop for furniture on Black Friday and divert your attention from smarter buys.
