My Cyber Monday Plan of Attack

Happy Cyber Monday!!! I personally enjoy Cyber Monday more than Black Friday. The deals tend to be just as good or better, and you can shop from the comfort of your personal computer. I bet there are much fewer injuries on Cyber Monday.
I know I should be ranting about all of the incredible sales today, and listing out where to go to get the best steals, but I’d like to take a different angle. Too many times I have fallen victim to temptations of killer sales. Every time I buy something that my boyfriend thinks is a frivolous purchase, I get THE LOOK, followed by, “Let me guess, it was on sale?” I like to argue and justify my buys, but he’s totally right; sales make me shop for things I do not need.
If this story sounds all too familiar, here is my suggested plan of attack for Cyber Monday:
1.       Make a list of all the people you want to buy holiday gifts for.
2.       Next to each person’s name, write down some gift ideas and stores. It can be anything as vague as “shirts” or as specific as “MacBook Air for Christina” (wink, wink). Just write it down, and then write some options for where you want to buy “it.”  (MacBook Air can be found here – more winks)
3.       Go to http://www.cybermonday.com/or http://www.cybermonday2011.biz/and search for the retailers and products. You can find discount codes and sale end dates. Some sales extend beyond today!
If you’re just shopping for yourself and not yet diving into gift buying, make a list of your favorite stores and look up those discounts.
I did some pre-browsing last night, and here are some shops I will check out:
