Thanksgiving happened. Black Friday happened. Christmas music is on radio stations and is playing in the grocery store. But there is still one more thing left that will really kick off the holiday season: Cyber Monday.

Cyber Monday always amuses me because “cyber” used to mean AIM sex when us old millennials were younger. Now, it means shopping online with massive discounts. The problem with Cyber Monday is that it falls on a Monday. Like, a work day. It’s hard to surf the web to find sweet sales while trying to hide your desktop from your co-workers, even though they are probably doing the same thing as you.

That’s why we created the 20-something’s guide to Cyber Monday, so you can work more and shop around less. Just kidding. Don’t work more. Relax, and spend money you don’t have.

Here’s our Cyber Monday guide. Did I miss any V important sales? Let me know. I have a credit card to max out!!! Happy shopping.
