Ready for Cyber Monday?

Now that Black Friday is past (and yes, I DID stop by more stores than I had said I would - LOL), the next big business day will be for online businesses.  Cyber Monday - everyone is pooped out from running to all of the department stores to catch those unbelieveable bargains . . . and ready to finish up from the comfort of their homes.

Trust me - there are plently of good deals online, as well.  Which is great for those of us who have yucky weather rolling in this week.  Some websites even offer low shipping rates to help out shoppers this season.  And, the more you can purchase and have shipped reasonably . . . the better your savings!

Black Friday Anyone?

Here it comes!  The busiest shopping day of the year . . . but, you won't see me out a 3am this year - yawn.  I really don't even care to be awake when the sun is coming up - LOL.  I have more of a tendancy to stay up late, watch movies such as Pride and Prejudice, The Day After Tomorrow, Men and Black, etc and sew.  Or, take the ocassional break to play Bejeweled on Facebook - LOL.

No, this year I will make only two trips on Black Friday - one to JoAnn's to pick up an organizational rack, and the other to a local quilt fabric store that offers 40% of one cut of fabric that day.  (We all have our weaknesses - right?)

Unfortunately, this change in shopping habits means that my babies are older and are either very specific about what they want, or ask for the very personal gift of money.  LOL.

Have fun while you shop - and be sure to eat something chocolate for me while you're out!

Christmas Already?

I just can't believe it! I just a little over a week, the shopping rush begins!

I don't know about you, but it really crept up on me this year.

Fortunately, the older kids want to pick their own things after Christmas with gift cards or cash, so the only one we really shop for is the youngest of our brood.
