If you’re anything like me, you go into the holiday season with absolutely no clue what you’re getting anybody. I think maybe, I’ll get it together and make homemade gifts this year. Of course, that’s never happened, and after spending an enormous amount of money on crafts I’m just left in a pile of glitter and sadness as I prepare to spend more money on last minute gifts. This year, I’m trying a different approach. I’ve decided to follow one of my best assets… the ability to sniff out a sale. And CyberMonday is going to help.
I was introduced to the site when Nate and I were looking for a laptop last year. Instead of a carefully crafted google search, he told me that we could use the site to track deals on the brands we were interested in. My sweet husband was really onto something with that laptop search, and inspired me to revamp my thinking for the holiday season! Instead of aimlessly wandering around department stores for hours hoping that something will jump out at me screaming “your dad obviously needs this!!!”, I’m thinking with my wallet first. My love of a great deal is going to guide me. The other day I saw a sale on the site for 40% off designer handbags at Lord And Taylor, and viola! Now my beautiful little sister is getting a lovely handbag that only came in under half my allotted budget!
CyberMonday has tons of special offers from top retailers all in one place. You can search by different categories including electronics, apparel (yes there’s a “plus size” section), or even food! The best part is, you don’t have to wait till cyber Monday to get in on the deals. They are always current, and even have an email option, alerting you to the best deals of the day. On cyber Monday the site will be updated with the best hourly deals from around the internet, ensuring you’ve got plenty of shopper-savvy inspiration for your gift list!
Now get to shopping! Make sure you let me know about any great deals or steals you find!
