an extremely brief Cyber Monday post

The online world today is filled with deals. So I have two things to say:

1. It is ok if you don’t take advantage of a single bargain that is offered online today.

Just because a deal exists does not mean you need to take advantage of it. Shopping deals is not always the best way to save money.

Plus, this is not the only day between now and the end of the year that sales will be offered. Don’t panic-buy.

2. It is also ok if you take advantage of a bargain that either:

  • you need 
  • would bring you or someone else joy

As long as you have the money to pay for it, you don’t need to be a guilt-laden consumer. Sometimes, shopping deals is a smart thing to do!

My mom wanted a Yankee Candle and they were half off, so I did buy that online. I also bought a really nice pair of gardening gloves to round out my purchase so I'd get free shipping. The gardening gloves will be part of my gift from my mother. She sends us money and we buy what we like/need with it. I'll also be ordering some new gardening tools and buying a couple of blueberry bushes, so all that will be my gifts from her, lol. I have a set amount I spend on her, so I'll send her cash for the balance (after the candle). She wants to buy a new frame for a picture my SIL and brother bought her a while back and said she'd use the money towards that.

Christmas shopping for adults is so odd fun, lol.

Sorry, Black what? Cyber what? Lol, I bought nothing. Oh, wait. I helped out at my thrift store gig for an hour on Friday before the store opened. I found two nice 1,000 piece puzzles for $2.00 each, less 30%, because they were on sale. Yup, hours of non-shopping enjoyment for $3.03. Busted.

Spent the day outside on both sale days enjoying beautiful weather and miles of uncrowded hiking. Absolutely no regrets.

Considering all I bought was a part for my washing machine, I'd say I did alright.

These sales have crept into Australia and I must admit I usually do not participate.
