has always confused me. I understand the day in theory — people taking advantage of post-Black Friday holiday sales by shopping online — but I don’t understand the day in practice. How is it that all these people have time to shop on a Monday after an extra long weekend? Don’t they have, like, work?
Because I certainly don’t have time to shop today — which only strengthens my theory that freelancers generally work harder than office-goers, even when the latter technically “work” longer hours than the former.
That’s a long way of saying that if you are “working” in the office today, turn Cyber Monday into Green Gift Monday
. The brainchild of The Nature Conservancy
, Green Gift Monday is basically Cyber Monday gone green. Whatever you’re buying, make it a thoughtful, eco-friendly purchase.
How do you plan to do your holiday shopping this year?
