Day 334: Cyber Monday

Cyber Monday.

Cyber Monday.

Every year I do more and more of my holiday shopping online and it’s been years since I’ve gone out on Black Friday. I haven’t totally gone cyber, though, since a few¬†of the things I’ve bought in the past required a quick trip to a brick-and-mortar store.

This year I made it a point to not only do all of my holiday shopping online, but to finish it early. I stayed up until midnight last night to get a jump on Cyber Monday and it really paid off. Items that I had bought on Amazon were quickly returned once I was able to take advantage of Target’s 15 percent off Cyber Monday special. Every penny counts these days!

I’m glad I got that head start, too, since Target’s website crashed this morning. I’d gone back to check my account when I saw the over-capacity message. That’s one great thing about cybershopping: a store that’s filled to the brim doesn’t degenerate into fisticuffs and real-life silliness.
