Love Black Friday bargains, but hate crowds? Cyber Monday is for you!

I admit it, I’ve been one of the crazy people lined up outside a store at 4 am in the freezing cold, battling substantial crowds on Black Friday, the biggest shopping day of the year. What would possess me to do such a thing on the day after Thanksgiving? The answer is always the same: the bargains! I’ve gotten huge discounts and been able to stockpile gifts for Christmas jordan kicks
, and even my daughter’s November birthday (on the years it comes after Thanksgiving). I usually save so much money it makes the crazy crowds and long waits worth it (even if I always ending up catching a bug from all the people). Last year, though, I hit on something even better than Black Friday: Cyber Monday.

Cyber Monday (the Monday after Thanksgiving) is typically the day when online retailers post huge discounts equal to deals you may find in stores on Black Friday.

Rather than mapping out stores, waiting for printed ads, and braving the blistering cold, I now do everything from my computer. I bookmark pages, create logins for faster purchases, fill and save virtual shopping carts, and print pages for my master list.

Sometimes a great deal is hard to resist low price retro jordans
. For items that end up in your cart without a recipient, remember: ‘Tis the season for those in need, as well. You can always donate purchases to a local charity. Saving money and doing good deeds? Sign me up!

One note is that Cyber Monday sales are often very short – just a set number of hours, instead of days like sales usually are. And just like Black Friday sales, once a deal is gone, there are no rain checks or backorders, so it’s worthwhile to set your alarm and start shopping as early as you can new balance running shoes for women
. A lot of stores even start their sales at midnight, so it doesn’t hurt to check before you go to bed on Sunday.

Another strategy I use is to search online for special promo codes to get even bigger discounts such as free shipping or specific discounts off featured items. Also, when items are no longer needed by me or my family, I take them to a local consignment store, sell them online, or have a yard sale. This adds to our holiday-shopping budget and passes along big savings to a fellow bargain shopper, both good things at this time of year.

We usually have a Cyber Monday sale here at Lifekind, and even though our marketing team keeps the actual discounts under wraps until the actual sale starts (they don’t even tell us Product Specialists!), the discounts are usually awesome. This year our SALE IS STARTING EARLY! Shop now to receive 20 percent off your order and free shipping on orders over $99. Save some green on your organic mattress and bedding!

Happy shopping!

Don’t wait till the end of January to take advantage of these great deals!

This year’s White Sale catalog introduces several new products at huge discounts.

LifekindJacquard

Our new Organic Cotton Jacquard Bedding Collection has a delicate diamond white-on-white pattern.  The diamonds seem to shimmer in the light, adding a touch of beauty to the silky-soft material. Made from 100% GOTS-certified organic cotton, they’re free of dyes or synthetic components. The collection contains sheets, pillowcases, and duvets.  Each piece is sold individually for your convenience. The pillowcases and flat sheet have a 7″ attached hem, and the fitted sheet is elasticized all the way around with 15″ pockets. These sheets are imported from India. The major reason I love them is because there’s no guess work when it comes to which direction to put the sheets on after I wash them. During the White Sale, the whole collection is 50% OFF.

We are also pleased to introduce two new items in our Baby Department.

Lifekind Dot Organic Crib Skirt

The first is our new Organic Swiss Dot Crib Skirt.  This dappled organic cotton percale bed skirt finishes the crib on a sweet and simple note. Fits standard cribs, with a 16″ ruffle. (Imported from India). I love this cute crib skirt because I can hide all my baby supplies under the crib and no one is the wiser!  During the White Sale, the Organic Swiss Dot Crib Skirt is 50% OFF.

 

 

Lifekind Organic Cotton Fleece BlanketThe second new baby item is the Organic Cotton Fleece Baby Blanket. Super-soft fleece makes this the perfect snuggling blanket, lightweight enough for swaddling. This snowy-white crib-size blanket is sure to become baby’s (and your) favorite, made in the USA from GOTS-certified 100% organic cotton. During the White Sale, the Organic Cotton Fleece Baby Blanket is 50% OFF.  (I recommend stocking up on these blankets – in my experience, you can never have enough swaddling blankets). Swaddling can help your baby stay calm and sleep better.  Here’s a great refresher, or if you’re learning for the first time, check out Babycenter.com on how to swaddle a baby.

I could write a whole blog on how helpful swaddling is. Warning: Don’t watch the swaddling video too many times, or it will make your biological clock tick:)

Along with these great new items, we also have awesome staple items on sale.  Here is a list of just a few of our customer favorites:

  • Organic Cotton Youth Robe   60% OFF

 

Don’t forget:  Mattresses are on sale too!  Now is the perfect time to order the organic mattress you’ve always dreamed of. During our White Sale, you can purchase a top-of-the-line organic mattress for 20% off plus free shipping.  So what are you waiting for? Order online or call 1-800-284-4983 today!
