GUIDE TO SANE GIFT SHOPPING & GIVING
Many people would rather shop online than jostle against crowds in stores. I’m one of them. This season, especially, retailers get us. We roll our eyes at in-store Black Friday. The getting up early and standing in line mayhem.
Black Friday deal sites, like Black Friday Gotta Deal, give great inside and pre-sale information for Black Friday.
Some smart retailers celebrate the holiday season with not only Black Friday online, but pre-Black Friday. Not only in stores, but online. Not only Cyber Monday, but Cyber Week. Did you hear that? The chorus singing ‘Hallelujah!’
Like Target. Their Cyber Week begins Monday, December 1st. Featuring steals on electronic, toys, kitchen, computer, home décor, clothing, music—lots of stuff that’s probably on your holiday list. etc. Sign up here for notification of deals.
For now check out some great gift ideas from Target’s clearance and pre-Black Friday deal selections.
