They say with age comes wisdom, and I am finding out that this is very true. When I was in my 20s, I loved going out with my friends on Black Friday. We would map out our route and have so much fun for the entire day. We didn’t sleep on some of those days for over 30 hours. When I hit my 30s, I had kids and a husband, and those days were getting harder and harder to appreciate. That is why this year, I am looking at Cyber Monday sites for 2016 to make it much easier on myself.
I did go out for Black Friday last year, but I was more frustrated than anything else. I knew that when it stopped being fun, then I had to call it a day. I did not want to miss out on all those deals though, which is where Cyber Monday comes in. Ten years ago, it was a term most people had never heard of. Today though, it is even more popular than Black Friday for a lot of stores. After finding out some information myself, I can definitely see why this is the case.
It would take me sometimes 20 or 30 minutes just to get to a store that was only one mile away on Black Friday. This is because of traffic and the inability to find a parking space because everything is just so crowded. To get between stores now, all I have to do is a simple mouse click, and I am there. Convenience like that definitely wins, and I am going to be a smart shopper this year instead of a frustrated shopper. I am actually looking forward to my after Thanksgiving shopping again this year, and I know that I will probably have the best shopping deals ever.
