Cyber Monday, Maine Style – 5 Essentials to Buy for Surviving the New England Winter
Hey CYY Freaks! We're back from Thanksgiving weekend, having survived overexposure to both calories and political discussion at the dinner table. Anyone else have a little to much stuffing? I'm suddenly feeling like my pants don't fit as well.
Anyway, for those of you who are like us, and who prefer not to fight the crowds on Black Friday, you're in luck - it's finally Cyber Monday, where you can do all your shopping in your pajamas without having to get up from the couch. Heaven is real, guys.
Here are 5 of our picks for essentials you should look for to survive the harsh Maine winter we're staring down at the moment. Grab 'em for a discount while you can!
LL Bean's Bean Boots
I think just about everyone in the state of Maine, and maybe even all of New England, has had at least one pair of these. So, newcomer or not, it's time to grab another pair.
Roadside Safety Kit
Every Mainer that owns a car should have one of these in their car at all times. Especially with winter coming on, it's time to start thinking about safety in the harshest of conditions.
Slip-On Snow Shoes / Traction Devices
Everyone's had a bad fall or two on some black ice we weren't expecting to step on. For those who are especially prone to slippage, try one of these over-the-shoe covers that grip the ice like your uncle grips his whisky bottle at Christmas.
I was just recently introduced to these things, and can't get over how cool they are. A really innovative and useful design for a reusable hand/foot warmer, these things will fit inside both shoes and gloves!
Allen's Coffee Brandy
Because of course.
