Nearly 60 percent of people with online access at work are expected to shop at their desk this Cyber Monday.

Now that Black Friday is over, retailers are re-shifting their focus to Cyber Monday. According to The National Retail Federation's digital arm, Shop.org, more than half of people with Internet access at work - nearly 60 percent - will shop at the office.

Aaron Faulkner says he's one of the millions planning to log on this year.

"Video game systems are extremely cheap, computers are extremely cheap," says Faulkner. "So it's a good time to get all of that stuff."

Even though he lives near a major shopping center, Faulkner says he prefers to buy his electronics online because of the convenience.

According to the National Retail Federation, the average person plans to do a third of their holiday shopping online this year.
