When Cyber Monday rolls around, many moms jump on the internet to find the best deals because it is so much easier to shop from home. On this particular Monday, not only do most stores offer free shipping, but prices often rival those offered on the infamous Black Friday. However, you can shop from home in your pajamas while your kids still sleep. Just be careful and check the return policy. Paying to ship things back is big negative, so read the policies. If you are wondering what you should be looking for, check out this top ten list.
Some of the most popular items to purchase on both Black Friday and Cyber Monday are desktops and laptops. These computers are so popular because while they are usually pretty expensive during the year, they become very discounted on these days. The time to purchase these items is during these sales in anticipation of a child leaving off to college.
2. TV Deals
Televisions are the other popular item that people will rush the doors to get their hands on. Televisions are so useful to a family because they give an opportunity to gather together and watch movies, play games, or just relax together watching some television. This is also great for entertaining and having friends over. There are never any better TV deals than during this time of year. Check out all the well-known electronics dealers.

This may seem a bit odd, but clothing companies definitely do not miss the opportunity to rack up their sales. While everyone is shopping on the internet, clothing stores will send out ads as well to lure customers to their site with some major price slashing. Winter clothing are the most popular items sold, especially coats and boots. Check around for additional percent-off codes to save even more.
6. Kitchen Appliances
Kitchen Aid mixers are the most purchased and scoped out gifts in this category.

You can easily get one of these mixers for half off on the sites for Bed Bath and Beyond, Kohls, and other home stores with free shipping, sale prices, and percent off codes that are always coming in the mailbox.
Department stores are in for any sale they can make in all of their departments. Check out the bedding and you will see big price cuts along with other linens like towels. Most people are not out to buy these items during the holiday season so you usually won’t have to worry about waiting for back ordered items.
Home Depot, Sears, and Lowes are known for putting out tool sets and power tools for cheap during these sales. In fact, these are their most popular items sold during the holiday season because these are the most popular man gifts. If you have been waiting all year for this sale, you will not be disappointed. Not even Father’s Day sales will give you these kinds of discounts.
Walking down the aisles of a store during Black Friday, it is common to see bins full of movies for a dollar or two. This is also true during the Cyber Monday deals because stores use the opportunity to draw you in to their store to see other products they are featuring. Amazon, Wal-Mart, and Target have really cheap movies every year so grab some to keep in your car for your kids to watch on road trips. This way is cheaper than renting.
Once again, electronics steal the show with their affordable prices. Cameras are so important because they capture life; the life of kids, nature, pets, and travels. Do not skip out on quality in this area. Instead, just be sure and buy when the price is in your range. Many electronics stores will offer deep discounts on not only the cameras and lenses they sell, but the accessories as well.
