How Do You Shop?

Shop to you drop, or click in your pajamas? How are you shopping this holiday season?

Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday… how are you shopping this year? 

I’ve never shopped Black Friday!  I know for many families it’s a tradition, but for me, it’s too crazy!  Maybe if there was a MUST have gift I’d do it, but for now, I’m fine staying snuggled up in my warm bed!  This year the deals looked great… but not enough to entice me to set my alarm for o’dark 30 if I’m not working!

I love the idea of Small Business Saturday.  What a great idea to highlight some of the local gems in our community.  I shop local as much as I can when it comes to finding unique gifts.  Plus, when you shop local, you’re helping your neighbors!

I LOVE Cyber Monday!  It’s my thing!  There are so many great deals.  Add in free shipping, and no-hassle crowds?  I’m in!  Sure, it takes the fun out of “looking” for a perfect gift, but if you already know what you’re looking for… I think it’s a great idea!

So, how do you shop?  Pros and cons of any of these?

This year I’ll be doing a bit of all three.  As I’ve mentioned on my Facebook page, my husband and I are not exchanging gifts this year, we are sponsoring a family through United Christmas Service.  Kids make the holiday magical, and this year… will be memorable for us too.
