If you're a hardcore holiday shopper, last night's Halloween festivities were just the warm-up act for what's to come. Shopping, lots of it.

You're not alone. Over the next two months, shoppers will spend about three-quarters of a trillion dollars on gifts. That includes shopping inside stores and online.

This year, Cyber Monday is likely to be the single biggest day of the year for online shopping. Shoppers will spend $3 billion for the first time ever on that one day, Monday, Nov. 30.

While that's obviously a lot of money, the day after Thanksgiving will also be huge. On Black Friday, Nov. 27, forecaster Adobe's Digital Index is predicting shoppers will spend $2.7 billion.
