The Day After Christmas

Like most other people, I am anxiously awaiting the day after Christmas. That's the day when I know almost every store in the universe will be running huge sales. I've already gotten flyers from two favorite stores about their post-Christmas sales (Ulta and Victoria's Secret), with promises of such deep discounts that product endorphins in my brain as I am writing this. I also know that another favorite of mine, Bath & Body Works will also be having huge sales after the holidays. Some stores are already cashing in on the frenzy now. However, are we really getting such great bargains in these sales, or did the retailers jack the prices up so high that the sales really aren't sales at all? Nevertheless, the promise of a sale is something that most of us cannot pass up. I have to admit that I've made some very bad decisions in the heat of a shopping frenzy, only the find in the aftermath that I really didn't need that horrible shade of nail polish or that weird color blush. I am going to try very hard this year to restrain myself (afterall, I did just lose my job), but I know I will succumb on some level to a bargain that is just too good to be true. I just read on another board that someone already got a great bargain at a discount store that has bargains everyday of the year, not just after Christmas. That's what I call a really smart shopper! Happy Holidays to all and happy shopping always!

Hi Susan,
As someone who always shops wholesale as much as possible and avoids retail, I will admit that many chains want to be rid of their merchandise right after Christmas and you can get good buys for picking the right day to shop.
Last year, at my local Brandsmart Outlet, I picked up a VHS tape recorder by Magnavox for $30 and a DVD player for $15. It pays to wait for bargains.
Happy Hanukkah to you and your family, Marvin
