Last Friday was Black Friday. Saturday was Small Business Saturday. Yesterday was Cyber Monday. And today, today is Shameful Tuesday because I bought absolutely nothing on any of those days.
Black Friday is not really for me, too many people, too much digging for things I want, too much chaos. I like order, and I do not like to dig when I am shopping. The former retail worker in me likes nice neat, clean racks, where the hangers are all in line. That doesn't happen on Black Friday.
I love to shop all the little places on Small Business Saturday. Little places don't usually have good sales, with the exception of this day. I'm all about the sale, as long I don't have to hurt anyone. Unfortunately, we were out of town so I didn't get to go to any of my favorite little shops.
Cyber Monday...This day is my game. I love to shop from my couch, especially when it's on sale! I am pretty convinced that Cyber Monday has deals that are just as good as Black Friday, only you don't have to fight someone's grandma for that pair of shoes you've had your eye on.
Last night, as I was hopping into my warm bed with my Nook at 11:30, I realized that I had missed Cyber Monday! I didn't get home until 8:30, and when I did finally get home, we watched 3 episodes of Parenthood (and why is Hattie never nice to her parents?!) and shopping didn't even come to my mind.
So today is Shameful Tuesday. Because it is December 3rd. And I have not marked one name off my Christmas list.
