• Cyber Monday

    November 30, 2009

    Happy Cyber Monday, bloggies! :mrgreen:

    What the heck is Cyber Monday, you ask? According to Wikipedia: “Cyber Monday is a marketing term that refers to the Monday immediately following Black Friday being the busiest day of the year for retail electronic commerce.”

    Are you taking advantage of the online sales today?

    Speaking of Cyber Monday, here are some online deals:

    • Banana Republic, Piperlime, the Gap, and Old Navy have 20% off + free shipping today.

    • And, my friends at Open Sky have implemented a coupon for $25 off ANY item!Β There’s no minimum purchase and free shipping, which means you could potentially get a product for FREE from Open Sky! (Limit one per customer.) For instance, you could get this Thomas Paul Pouch totally FREE with the coupon! This is a limited-time offer, so if you want to use the coupon, you shouldn’t wait.

    This morning’s breakfast featured a long lost love of mine: almond butter. Oh, how I have missed you!

    I spread about 2 tablespoons of MaraNatha Creamy & Raw Almond Butter on my toast.


    And then topped it with banana slices.


    Mal made me an iced coffee before he left for work, which definitely helped get my day started.

    Beth @ DiningAndDishing November 30, 2009 at 3:11 pm

    I am usually really good about staying on budget during the holidays but am kind of worried about it this year because now I live in DC I have a high rent to pay!! I am going to keep a sharp eye out for good deals so that I can get something nice for everyone on my list without missing my Jan. rent payment :O)

    Thanks for the great deal alerts! I’m trying to hold back …


    Sara November 30, 2009 at 3:55 pm

    I try to make a list of what I am buying for who… it eliminates a lot of impulse buys, because then I end up buying too much!

    Hi Tina,

    Just wondering if that coupon code for OpenSky expired. I tried using it for the oven mitts and it said the code is not valid.
