Black Friday/Cyber Monday

Ok.. I wrote all last week about how I was not going to shop on Black Friday… blah blah..

I broke my own word and early Friday Morning, I was out there shopping. I spent about $500 on computer hardware and digital camera and felt guilt..

Not only that, I found myself looking constantly at my iPhone app for Black Friday for more deals..

I guess my own words don’t carry much weight… Tomorrow is Cyber Monday and there isn’t much more money left for me to spend… or is there? We’ll see.

I hear that this year’s Black Friday sales exceeded last year’s sales by 3%. Of course I wanted to contribute to this increase.. and I certainly did.

Take a look at the PC magazine’s article for tips for Cyber Monday.. I found the article pretty interesting.

Happy shopping my friends…

Black Friday/Cyber Monday

So here we are as we approach the biggest shopping weekend of the year.. I’ve listed quite a few Black Friday Sites, but are you ready for Cyber Monday? Just Google Cyber Monday and you will see the deals, steals and scams of cyber Monday.

This year I’m sitting this one out.. Yes, you heard right.. I’m sitting this one out.

Of course I’ll be out there and Shopping on Black Friday, but I won’t be buying.. Perhaps I’ll buy some scraps after the hardy stay on lines and grab the gems, but for me, I realized, I really don’t need much!

I’ll be prowling the web for Cyber Monday Deals, but I don’t think I’ll be much of a buyer this year.

My wife and I talked about this. We have everything we need.

Oh wait, my little one wants the new Adam Lambert and Allison (what is her last name?) CD, but I can get these CD’s AFTER the  POST black Friday/Cyber Monday madness. Oh yeah, she wants a REAL digital camera.. not the Sears camera that I bought her last year!

Oh wait, I could replace my CRT 27″ TV with a flat screen with the 32″  or larger that will be on sale in Costco and Target! How can I pass up on Free shipping when I order on-line?

Oh wait, I’m going to have my whole family at my house and the pressure to get out there on Friday. Will I be able to handle the pressure to spend? Probably not.

Ok. I give up. I’ll join the masses that run from store to store looking for deals on Black Friday for things I really don’t need, but must have! I’ll run up my credit card balances with stuff I can’t pay for by shopping on-line for deals on-line.. I’ll deal with the crazy traffic on the roads.. I’ll deal with the guilt of spending when I know I shouldn’t..

I’ll be on Twitter on my iPhone waiting for deals to roll in, so I can buy stuff on-line. And I’ll surf  to sites that my buddy texts me to go for the 1Tera Byte external Harddrive that I absolutely need to get, even though I already have 3 or 4 external drives already!

Oh wait, I forgot I have to load up on the turkey before I can even think about going out there and hunting/stalking for bargains!


Take a look at my sidebar links and you will see additional sites where you can spend more money!

On a totally different tangent… If you are shopping at Amazon and need Filler items to get free shipping. The Uberi site links you to Amazon to give you a good breakdown by percentage you could save at Amazon on sale items.

Wow, just writing this post, I’m starting to get into a frenzy to get out there and spend money I don’t have!

Have fun everyone and I hope all my readers have a happy and safe holiday season!

Remember my motto: “Shop with what’s in your wallet, not with your emotions”.

I keep coming across new sites that interest me. I decided that I’ll be posting the links on my side listings under their respective categories.
