I hate Black Friday. There, I said it.

As a former retail employee who for years had to leave Thanksgiving early to work Black Friday and deal with rude customers all day I am here to say Black Friday is overrated and you're much better off participating in Cyber Monday.

Besides being traumatized by working Black Friday for years, as a customer why wake up at the crack of dawn and go to an overcrowded shopping center, deal with impossible parking lots and long lines when you could shop from the comfort of your own home, wrapped in your favorite fuzzy blanket?

It's a no brainer for me, but if you need some convincing look no further than these Cyber Monday sales.

So with Cyber Monday around the corner, if you're anything like me you already have your online wishlists and shopping carts full and ready to be checked out.

But you better make sure you're not missing any of these sales, because trust me THEY. ARE. WORTH. IT.
