Black Friday or Cyber Monday?

I have talked with lots of multi-tasking/multi-minding moms this week on the topic of, no surprise, shopping. According to the news reports, Black Friday and Cyber Monday both did fairly well (Cyber Monday better), but the value of individual purchases is down across the board.

The angle I continue to be most interested in is the time element. Shopping takes so much time we've practically become too busy to shop, right?! While I am a dedicated online shopper b/c it saves so much time, so many of the moms I talked to got up at ungodly hours on Friday morning (after preparing Thanksgiving dinners the day before) and went in search of good deals.

How do you make time to do your holiday shopping?
