Where to Shop for Black Friday and Cyber Monday Deals

Avoid the mobs this Black Friday. With deals as plentiful as your carbohydrate intake on Thanksgiving, it can be super overwhelming to even decide which online shopping baskets to pre-load, so I've sorted through the crap to give you a hand-picked list of some of my fave places to shop 'til you drop.
The best part is you can keep your PJs on, reheat some stuffing, and shop these picks with the minimal brain power you have left after answering all Aunt Ethel's questions about your love life. Ugh, go away, Ethel.



(....OR you could stand in this crowd with the other Black Friday zombies and maybe lose a few toes in the stampede. It's really whatever floats your boat. No judgment.)
