Personal Finance Review – Shopping Online Edition

November 25, 2007

Holiday shopping is ZERO fun.  Although I wasn’t around for Black Friday, I did spend half an hour waiting in line this evening to make my first gift purchase of the season.  The longer I stood the more irritated I became with the situation and any holiday cheer I was feeling quickly evaporated.  I decided while waiting in line that this year I’m going to do the remainder of my Christmas shopping online.  If I start now I should have it all delivered on time, we’ll see how it goes.

I wasn’t the only one with shopping on the brain this week. The Digerati Life gives us some Black Friday Inspired Shopping Strategies, Generation X Finance offers a List of Some 2007 Cyber Monday Sales, Free Money Finance listed 10 Things Better than Shopping Today, Mighty Bargain Hunter asks Can you do without these holiday expenses?, and My Money Blog suggests some Investment Gift Idea For Children.

Here were some other posts I enjoyed this week:
