Golly gee whiz. You missed Black Friday. And you passed on Cyber Monday when, as reported in the Huffington Post, other more enterprising shoppers were able to score hot deals on red-soled Christina Louboutin fuchsia platform pumps for the low low price of only $1,199.99 or buy a Michael Kors jersey frock for only $2,391. And if you were filled with holiday cheer and feeling really generous that special sale day, you could have gotten  colored diamonds from Leibish for just $408,750 or taken you and 146 of your closest friends round-trip anywhere in the U.S. on a Virgin Airplane for just $60,000. Unfurrow your brow. Stop gnashing your teeth. There are ways to make amends. And they are homegrown and piggybank friendly.
