You're probably familiar with Black Friday, Cyber Monday, but now Green Monday? If you're wondering what it is, it's only the second best shopping day of the year!

Green Monday has been defined from some of the heavy-hitters in retail, like Walmart and Amazon, as the second biggest shopping day of the year.

Green Monday typically falls on the second Monday of December.

When you think of 'green' it's easy to think of cash or money, and it might as well be. Retailers this season are reporting huge profits based on Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales.

This is a good indicator that the economy is doing very well and there is much investment confidence to boot.

But, I digress.

Green Monday is a time when retailers have refreshed their stock from the other sales days, with more great discounts.

Scott Cutler, senior vice president of eBay America's stated in a news release that,

"Historically, Green Monday has been one of the biggest shopping days of the year for eBay and we see a sense of urgency from shoppers to check people off their list during this time of year."

So, if you haven't finished all of your Christmas shopping yet, it looks like a good time to take advantage of all of the Green Monday deals that online and box stores will be promoting, which is more savings for us here in northern Maine.

Also, don't forget to enjoy your holiday dollars by shopping with your local merchants as well. It's always good to support and shop local when you can.
