My Webtastic Black Friday

In past years, I admit I have been a Christmas present procrastinator. December just always seems to sneak up on me, and between holiday parties and decorating and baking and everything else, finding the {perfect} gifts have always been left until the very. last. minute. I spend the few days before Christmas running around from store to store, stressing out and sweating, trying to find exactly what I need. Online shopping is not an option when you procrastinate. Not even close, especially when you have to travel for the holidays.

Every year I tell myself that this year will be different. Well, GUESS WHAT FRIENDS!?! This year was different! I’ve been working on my list of gifts for people for the past few weeks. And on Black Friday, I was READY. I sat on the comfy chair at my in-laws starting late Thanksgiving night, logged into my email for all my promo codes, and of course Ebates so I could save even more, and started buying and saving like a mad woman. Like my favorite blogger always says, 


So I shopped my little heart out, and got about 85% of my Christmas shopping done. You have no idea how huge this is, seriously! This means I will not be scooping up last minute gift cards, or running from store to store on December 23rd, so I am very, very pleased. And I scored some great deals {um, I mean, everything I bought was SUPER expensive, family and friends, so you better love them, wink, wink!} I even found the perfect wedding gift for a friend getting married in February. Can you say OVER-ACHIEVER?

For the first time in I don’t know how long, I am super excited to give my loved ones their gifts this Christmas. And I even picked out a few little things for myself. Including the Verizon Ellipsis 7 tablet, which I got for FREE. You heard that right….free. And it was even overnighted to me for Saturday delivery, also for FREE. I’ve been playing with it for a few days, and I absolutely love it. It has 4G and just goes right on my Verizon Share Everything plan, so I didn’t have to set up a new account or anything like that. It’s small enough to hold easily in my hand, but large enough to see the screen about a thousand times better than my phone. Have I mentioned I loved Black Friday this year? 

Best part of my Black Friday experience….I didn’t have to go out in the crowds or the cold. Now THAT’S my kind of deal! Isn’t the internet a wonderful thing???
