Giving Tuesday makes me happy.  After watching our country lose its shopping mind thanks to early shopping hours actually on Thanksgiving, its never been more apparent that our quest for a good deal knows no boundary.  Black Friday has lost a bit of its bling and Cyber Monday gives us hope that what we may have missed we can still find and save just a bit more.  By the end of this 4 day focus Read more
