I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and is getting ready for the holidays! We had an awesome Thanksgiving and just decorated our house for Christmas this weekend. My shopping is just about done too. I took a few hours on Cyber Monday to buy all of my gifts. Was it me or were this year’s Black Friday and cyber Monday deals crap?
I am not one to go out shopping for gifts on Black Friday, I instead look for deals that I can resell for a higher price. It felt like all of the “good deals” were on products made by companies I’ve never heard of before. And for Cyber Monday, the “deals” I found were free shipping on orders of $100 or more. Wow, what a deal (end sarcasm).
Ir seems as though the deals rotate from year to year. Last year was a great year for finding deals. Two years ago, not so much. Hopefully next year is better.
Anyways, the year end is upon and that means 1,000’s of articles about goal setting and New Year’s resolutions. I am putting my foot down and telling you now I will not be writing about goals come January. At this point, it just feels like every article is the same thing just in a different voice.
Enough about all that. You came here to find some awesome posts from other personal finance bloggers. Here are the posts I’ve found to be the best while surfing the web recently.
