If you’ve been hankering for a pricey appliance like a Vitamix or even a KitchenAid, love the thrill of a good deal (and don’t mind the emotionally taxing journey to get there), or just find online shopping relaxing: Sure. This coming Friday, November 29, is the official shopping holiday, with Cyber Monday following on December 2 (and sales running in between).
