Over the Black Friday weekend, I must confess that I did a little shopping for yours truly. I found a fantastic deal on New Balance running shoes plus free shipping. I quickly purchased them, called my mom to tell her about the deal, and she said, "I have been asking you what you wanted for Christmas. Why didn't you let me buy them?"
"Because mom, the sale was going to be over soon. And I didn't want them to run out of stock in my size. And I need them now. And I don't know, it was a great deal and I couldn't pass it up!" My response was pure shopping justification.
With so many stores offering great deals right now, wouldn't it be a good idea to take advantage of the fantastic savings and stock up on the things that we need? Sure, we might ask others to buy it for us, but sometimes it is nice to get a Christmas present or two or three for ourselves.
For example, if you have been wanting to upgrade the family TV, right now is the perfect time to do it with prices so low on HDTVs and other electronics. (Now this doesn't mean that you spend all of your holiday cash on your new home theater and give Uncle Leo a can of WD40 from the pennies left over. Let's be reasonable here.)
This time of year is a season for giving to the important people in our lives. It is the perfect opportunity to let a dear family member, friend, acquaintance, and business colleague know how much they mean to you. With most retailers offering amazing deals and online specials this year, it is even easier to stretch your dollars while you do it. And if you find a great deal for yourself along the way, well, that is a bonus.
