I'm being good this holiday season and sticking to my post-recession budget, but I have enjoyed "window" (ha!) shopping on this fine Cyber Monday.
Are you spending today? Did you find any spectacular deals?
I'm all for discount shopping, I wouldn't own anything without it, but I wonder if Cyber Monday is even that big of a deal. My internets are pretty full of coupons, discount codes, sales and other money-saving frippery. At this point in the internet bargain trend lifecycle, retailers are going to have to damn near give things away to be noticed.
My email inbox will be hopping all day with offers, if something really rockin' crosses my path, I'll throw it in a comment below. Running a ladyblog comes with very few perks (we get four or five free books a year, tops), but one of them is getting on all the email lists for brands who want free advertising. From what I have so far, there's good stuff happening at ThinkGeek, Sephora, Uncommon Goods, the entire Old Navy empire, and Best Buy.
If you're spending today, spend responsibly. February fucking sucks if you overspend on the holidays, save yourself the trouble now.
