I have been shopping with Amazon for many years now.  The merchandise selection is vast, the prices are good, and by being a Prime member, the shipping is fast and easy.  But now Amazon has made it even easier to shop.

I don’t share all that many “deals” with you all, but I did want to share a couple with you today.  Cyber Monday is often one of the best days (or range of days) to shop online.  I know I’ve been looking for the best prices on the wish list items for the kiddos this year, and some of them I’ve found today.
