The one pro with this “recession” is that the all important sale starts earlier and continues longer. The pre-Christmas sales have been such an unexpected surprise making my purchases that much more easier to justify. It’s probably not the best advice, but having no time to shop for presents until this week have actually helped my bank balance for once. Although most on-line sales have past the date for Christmas deliveries, as long as you know how to maneuvre the manic shop floors, there’s still plenty of time to find that amazing steal. Happy weekend sales shopping!
