The summer humidity is gone, so someone, somewhere has started counting down, I’m sure. Personally, I have to get through several fall birthdays (7) before even thinking about Christmas. Which is why I tend to be a last-minute shopper, and the past few years I’ve been a last-minute on-line shopper. How crazy is that? Why must I wait til December 20th to sit down in my pj’s and cruise through, say, Kohl’s website and pick out gifts to send to out-of-state relatives?
This year will be different. This year, I’m going to join the masses on Black Friday (the day after Thanksgiving) and make real progress on my list. Only I’m not getting in line at Kohl’s at 4am to do it…..I’m going to Black-Friday.net instead. Here I can preview the sales of some of my favorite stores (Kohl’s, Target, Best Buy) and go directly to their websites and shop til I drop (or my coffee gets cold). And even if I don’t get a lot of shopping done on my list, maybe I’ll get a Christmas dress or two for MAM–Kohl’s will have all Dressy Apparel for Girls 60% off. Seriously.
Many retailers already have their ads posted on Black-Friday.net, and if you really want to stay up to date, an email subscription will notify you when merchants add more sales. It sounds like a no-brainer–why not preview the sales and shop in the comfort of home, turkey sandwich in hand?
