Two billion dollars! That is the estimated amount consumers spent yesterday on Cyber Monday alone! Coming off of the best Black Friday in years, what is all of this saying about our weak economy? Some say that we are spending now due to the fact that there are really good deals out there being offered to us in more convenient ways. Some say it is a fear of going off the fiscal cliff; we are spending our money now while we think we have it. Still others say, it’s simple, Tis’ the season. We spend this time of the year whether we have it or not. Americans, especially, are more giving at this time of the year no matter how broke we’ve been the other 11 months of the year. I have to admit, that I have done zero shopping! Instead of Black Friday stressful shopping, my girls and I went to a local salon and relaxed with manis and pedis! Now, that’s how you do Black Friday!
