Black Friday and Cyber Monday are two days out of the year when we all scramble to get those great deals. But I have a little secret for you. The best deals may be had on neither of these two days. Let me explain why.

Traditionally, since the 1960s, the day after Thanksgiving is is known as “Black Friday,” the first official start to holiday shopping. Retailers provide great door buster deals at amazing prices on the hottest items. On “Cyber Monday,” that is the Monday after Black Friday, online shopping websites post their hottest deals.

But times have changed.

Cyber Monday came about when broadband connections to the Internet were rare in homes. Bargain hunters waited until they got back to work on Monday to use their work computers to get the best online shopping deals, and thus Cyber Monday was born.

Today, having a speedy Internet connection is more common. Online retailers recognize that shoppers can go online at any time to do their shopping, so they post their advanced deals on…da da da..Thanksgiving! You don’t want to miss out.

So while the turkey is in the oven, while the casseroles are being cleared from the table, or while the rest of the family is napping on the couch, sneak over to the computer and check out some really great deals. You may have your holiday shopping completed before anyone can say “turkey sandwich.”

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
