HAPPY THANKSGIVING! I hope you are spending the day with loved ones, enjoying a wonderful meal and then putting on some comfy clothes. We are hosting everyone over here and then watching the Dallas Cowboys game. While everyone relaxes, I thought I would get an early start on Black Friday Sales. Today, I am giving you a full list of sales, codes and more!
The holidays have officially arrived, so we all know what that means….lots of shopping! I don’t know about you, but I love to be as efficient as possible when I do my holiday shopping. This is why I am a big advocate for online shopping. Let’s talk about the top 8 reasons why online shopping during the holidays is the best choice! Obviously wearing these pajamas while shopping for Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals is one of them! What’s your sale strategy?
1. Save Time
Shopping online saves SO much time! Between driving, finding parking, and waiting in lines, you can spend hours just trying to shop at one store. YUCK! Not only is it faster to pull up a store site on your computer, it’s also quicker to search for what you want. No need to spend time browsing an entire store when you can quickly click to find what you need. Also, no lines at check out! That alone is worth it to me. With the busyness of the holidays, we all need to save time where we can. Did you know that you can start ALL of your holiday shopping with me? It doesn’t cost you any more. Simply start on TanyaFoster.com and click one of the retailers listed in the right column under “WHERE I SHOP” or click the “HOLIDAY” tab in the navigation bar at the top.
2. Save Money
Who doesn’t love saving money, especially during the holidays? Besides saving gas money from shopping online, you also will get better sales. There are so many deals you can find online for Black Friday AND Cyber Monday. Why go to the store when all of the same deals can be found on the computer from the comfort of your home? For instance, Soma is selling their Cool Night Pajama’s online for $25 on Black Friday ONLY (usually $60). Soma is also marking 30% off of everything store-wide! If you can get the same or better deal online as in person, why go to the store? FREE SHIPPING is an added perk!
3. Shop Anytime
The amazing part of shopping online is that you avoid the cumbersome store hours. The last thing I want to do is get up and go shopping at 4am on Black Friday! Also, there are times that I want to shop before work, which is before stores open, or at night before I go to bed….all of which require pajama attire 😉 . There is so much flexibility with online shopping!
4. More Variety
There’s way more variety online! You have all of the store options right at your fingertips. Online shopping makes it so easy to compare all of the colors and styles of any item you are interested in side by side with ease. Bonus: you can also shop at multiple stores at one time, making it even easier to compare options! This is a huge pro for me when I want to compare prices and reviews from various brands all at one time.
5. Easy to Send Gifts
Shipping gifts is now incredibly easy, thanks to online shopping. The Post Office can be so hectic and busy over the holidays, so the last thing I want to do is spend a bunch of time there (see #1). Many stores will now do FREE SHIPPING, especially during the Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals. You can ship the gifts directly to your loved ones!
6. You Can Enjoy Wine and Binge-Watch TV Shows
Two things you cannot do at the mall: Drink wine and watch Netflix. Nothing I love more than shopping from the comfort of my couch while binge-watching my favorite Netflix, Amazon Prime or Apple TV series with a glass of wine in my favorite pajamas. You cannot beat that luxury! Am I right?
7. It is Safer
Y’all have all seen those crazy videos online! It is much safer and smarter to avoid the crazed shoppers and drivers by shopping online. Crowded parking lots can lead to accidents, theft and more. People get stressed and angry from dealing with the crowds, so I think it’s safe to say we will all be safer by shopping online.
8. Spend More Time with Loved Ones
I would much rather be spending more time with my loved ones during the holidays than shopping in stores. The last thing that I want to do is leave my Thanksgiving dinner early to go to a store. I would much rather be crowded by my friends and family than a bunch of strangers. I want to enjoy every moment that I can at holiday parties and with the people I love the most. ‘Tis the season for shared love, laughs and memories!
Can you think of any other tips for shopping online? Did I mention all of them? What’s your holiday sale strategy?
