So is one mega-sale better than the other? If you factor in time and stress then they probably come out about the same, so follow your own shopping preferences. If you love crowds and competition, Black Friday is right up your alley but if you’re more at home at home (or at the office, who’re we kidding) Cyber Monday is for you. And you won’t risk being trampled while rushing to be the first to nab the best of the sale goodies! Whatever you choose, the best way to make the most of all of these bargains is to keep a clear head. Make a list and check it twice. If you’re braving the crowds, map out your shopping destinations ahead of time and bring your coupons and ads with you. Finally, don’t get swept away in the frenzy for merch. Stick to your budget and your list!
