Hi Everyone! I hope you had a great Thanksgiving and a safe Black Friday shopping experience. I’m sure that some of you also participated in Small Business Saturday. That should have been lots of fun as well. I had a great Thanksgiving. It started with a nice dinner with my family and ended with cruising the streets with my mom for Black Friday. We had a blast and we only purchased one jacket and a sweater. We waited until 12:00 am and the excitement had all died down. It was fun to be able to look around without the crowd. This weekend was great! Today is Cyber Monday and it’s a great way to top off a great weekend. For Cyber Monday I am strictly shopping for electronics.
The first thing that I am looking for is the Apple Watch. This watch is perfect for those of us that have an iPhone and would like to integrate fitness and health tracking capabilities with our Apple products. I’m really excited about purchasing this watch. The feature that I’m looking forward to using most would have to be the activity rings. I sit at a desk for eight hours each day, and I know that I need to become more active. I really hope that the activity rings inspire me to move more and make healthier choices.
Next on my list is the Cannon Powershot G7 X. As you all know, I am a blogger and with that comes the need for clear, crisp pictures. This camera takes great pictures and it is the last camera that I will need to purchase for a while. I have reviewed this camera and it is ready to use right out of the box. This is a great camera for bloggers and vloggers. I really love the quality of the photos and videos without the bulk of a DSLR camera. My favorite features are the wi-fi capabilities and the LCD screen that flips up for selfies.
The last thing on my Cyber Monday list is an 11.6 inch Asus Laptop. I already have a huge laptop with tons of storage space and all of the bells and whistles, but portability is an issue. My current laptop is almost six pounds and the screen size is 15.6. Since I am a blogger, I need to be able to bring a laptop with me essentially everywhere in order to get work done. This Asus laptop is really an enhanced tablet, but it will be perfect for blogging on the go. It weighs 2.2 pounds and the screen size is small enough to fit into most of the bags that I carry. The storage space is not the best, but it is expandable via SD card and external hard drive. I also have tons of storage space on my regular laptop to compensate for this issue.
I’m really excited for Cyber Monday. I have budgeted my money for the things that I would like to purchase. My goal is to find the lowest price for each of the items on my list. If I feel like the price is more than I would like to pay, I will wait a few more months to make the purchase. These things are definitely wants not needs, so I will not be disappointed if I do not purchase everything.
If you are participating in Cyber Monday, be sure to shop around. Do not feel pressured into making a purchase if you feel that you can get a better deal at another time. Also, be sure that you try your best to pay cash and avoid going into debt for things that you do not need in order to live. Remember that there will always be another sale. I hope everyone enjoys their online shopping experience today!
