I told myself I wasn't going to buy anything unnecessary on Cyber Monday, as I tend to get caught up in the random ads that pop up and buying an assortment of random things I really didn't need.  Well, I made it through most of the day without pulling out my debit card, or without hitting that damn 'Buy now with 1-Click' button on Amazon, however, the snow started falling again, I found myself on the couch scrolling through deals, and I made a few purchases, but for things I could use (read: wanted) for around the house - when did I get old?

I feel like i'm the only one without an Instant Pot and there was deal of the day special for today, so now I need suggestions as to what to make with this new appliance that I will add to the ones I already have (and rarely use)

Blackout curtains because I rearranged my living room and now the sun hits the TV (#firstworldproblems)

...and because who doesn't need some extra floating shelves for the house, right?

I remember when I used to buy fun things like TVs and other cool gifts (mostly for myself) on Cyber Monday - man, how times have changed.

Happy shopping :)
