NEW YORK — “Cyber Monday” — a term initially created in 2005 to persuade people to shop online— is among us.
Days after thousands across the country chose to brave the cold for Black Friday deals, others see fewer reasons to ever leave their homes.
Among the sites expected to make a killing on the at-home shopping day is Amazon, which offers discounts on hundreds of items across dozens of categories. The site is also now offering voice ordering via alexa (the Amazon echo) — you ask her deals and then she asks if you want to order.
What is most important?
You need to go in with a list or a budget if you don’t it is much easier to overspend.
The average holiday budget is $950 which is up from last year and total sales between black Friday and Christmas are going to reach 1 billion a day.
This is easier to not blow your budget when you are sitting at your computer.

Here are the top deal sites:
