Let the Sales Begin!

Christmas is over and now the fun really begins! This next week will be filled with sales galore as stores try to get rid of their holiday merchandise and make way for spring collections. Here are some tips to make the most of this great shopping time of the year!

1) Shop early...or late. It is already December 27th, so now is the time to shop to get the best selection. Also, it is good to go to stores when they open. People are not as eager to go shopping early now that the holidays are over. However, as the week goes on, items will be further reduced in some stores so patience does pay off!

2) Buy your holiday cards and decorations for next year now! I did this last year and am so thankful. Holiday decorations and cards are at least 50% off or more at many places. Stock up for 2007 - you will thank yourself later.

3) Some retail stores will have better deals than the internet. This usually is not true, however, retail establishments often are constrained by space and need to physically clear out their stores for new merchandise. Shop online first to see what's there, but wait until you compare at the malls before you make any purchases.

I will be hitting the malls later today so I will be sure to keep you posted on what I find!
