‘Twas the Night before Cyber Monday: Tips for Staying Secure While Shopping Online

Electronic retail is a non-shopper’s holiday shopping dream come true! The lines are nonexistent, the wait time is short, and your online shopping cart will never present you with a squeaky or wobbly wheel. It truly is the best of both worlds. You can stay home and shop from your computer in your warm and comfy pajamas and slippers. Not only that, but the parking is close and you do not have to watch strangers duke it out over the last Furby (admit it. They are kind of creepy.)
