    Anybody find some good deals last night? I'm aiming to have half of my Christmas shopping done by Tuesday.

    I got some really good quality earbuds to keep at work (I sit four feet from the elevator and its loud ding). Amazon Black Friday deal.

    Somehow, unbelievably, my wife agreed when I mentioned getting a TV. We found a 60" Samsung plasma on clearance at a number of places for $850 and free shipping (normally about $1500). It doesn't have 3D (don't care) and it's not a SmartTV (we already have a PS3 that does everything) which is why it was cheap. Ended up ordering from WalMart as BestBuy had sold out while we were discussing it. It should be here by 11/29 so I'm super excited. It's replacing a 40" Samsung LCD that's about 4 years old that will now go into our guest room.

    Beer & Wine Making Starter Kit Buyer's Guide

    The "Essential" kit has all of the basics you will need (except for the actual brew kit).

    Anyone see any great Cyber Monday deals? If you need some Iowa State gear, Finishline.com has hoodies and sweatpants 2 for $35 + free shipping...can't beat the price.

    Yea, cycloneworld is correct. I'd get one of the kits from either Northern Brewer or Midwest Supplies (both online stores). If you're in Des Moines, there is a store called Beer Crazy (Beer Crazy - Home) which is where I bought my initial kit. They're great and can answer questions you may have.

    need to get a new laptop and probably should do that today, but I'm sure that won't happen. Trying to peruse some of the other deals to start knocking off the long Christmas list and maybe find a few ideas for myself.

    Just bought a nice peacoat for only $75 and Amazon has their original Kindle for 130 today that I got my girlfriend. I'm getting the new Kindle HD, so I want to be sure that she doesn't have nicer things than me.

    Got my daughter the $130 Kindle Fire too. You also get a 30% off voucher for accessories from Amazon Local after you purchase so got her a case. Was $30 something, on sale and with voucher for $16.

    Plus, since I'm a Prime member and didn't need fast shipping I got $4 in free mp3 downloads:)

    NOTE: It's the original Kindle Fire not original Kindle.

    Maybe it's because I have nearly every piece of electronics known to man, but it seems like there are very few knockout deals for CyberMonday
