The waiting. The mad dash. The empty-handed retreat. This could mean you've either tried to make a soufflé or tried to brave the crowds on Black Friday. If, however, you've perfected the art of the soufflé, rest assured that you can give up shopping the day after Thanksgiving, as Cyber Monday is around the corner!

Cyber Monday, the Monday after Thanksgiving, is one of the biggest online retail days of the year when holiday shoppers stay put to make their purchases. As the years go by, more and more people are lounging around and logging on to see what retailers have to offer from the comforts of their own home.

If you have a holiday shopping list that includes someone who enjoys cooking, baking, eating or entertaining, you can avoid in-store shopping this holiday season. Cyber Monday offers countless sales and special deals to keep you at home and in your slippers.

Be sure to sign up for email alerts, free shipping specials and updates on money-saving deals and hourly specials for specific retailers, both via the Cyber Monday sites, as well as the online retailer sites.
