Well, I confess, I am not a Black Friday shopper.  That whole idea does not appeal to me at all – and it kinda just makes me want to avoid every store altogether.  But, Cyber Monday?  I can get behind that!  I don’t do wild and crazy shopping, but I do love to get a head start on my Christmas shopping!  I have been compiling my favorite Cyber Monday Strategies for you – hoping that you find some awesome tips and tricks to make this deal day the best!

SHOP YOUR CHRISTMAS GIFT LIST

Holiday Gift TrackingI don’t know what I am getting everyone for Christmas, but I do have a budget and basic list, so I don’t shop all-crazy-like!  The last thing I want to do is buy something just because it’s on sale.  I love this Holiday Gift List Printable by iHeart Organizing and shared by Jen of Whimsy At Heart.  Read her post to get some fabulous ideas for keeping track of your Christmas Gift Plans!

FOLLOW THE DEALS IN ONE PLACE

Hip2SaveEvery single blogger and their sister are tracking the Cyber Monday deals – and that just totally overwhelms me.  I follow Cyber Monday deals with Collin from Hip2Save.  She tracks deals and updates her site all in one place!  Keep her site bookmarked (or follow with Bloglovin) so you get instant reports of all the sales!

SHOP SMALL BUSINESS

I am a huge cheerleader for small businesses!  I know that I am an Amazon junkie, but there is nothing more exciting than finding that perfect handmade gift from a local artisan!  I posted a list of some Small Businesses last Saturday (see here!) and wanted to leave you with a few more!  Enjoy these awesome ladies!

FOR BIG THINGS, SHOP AMAZON


For handmade soap, your favorite Etsy business will be the best.  But, for anything large (cameras, electronics, appliances), CHECK AMAZON.  Their sales will often top the individual stores, and with Amazon Prime shipping is FREE and TWO-DAY.  I love to price check at Amazon – and am often stunned by the price difference.  Check this App for a great Amazon Price-Checker!
