Screw Black Friday. There’s too many people and too much craziness that goes into all that. December 26th is my favorite day to go shopping. Especially in person. Stores are trying to get rid of their holiday inventory and start slashing prices. These sales may or may not be advertised. But they’re definitely there to be found.
- I have a family member who has a birthday shortly after Christmas. Even though part of my reason for waiting so long to shop is procrastination, the other part is that I can go birthday shopping consciously rather than lumping it all in with Christmas. Not to mention the great deals I find on extraneous inventory.
- I can get Christmas decorations for next year super cheap. Like, ridiculously cheap. And then I don’t have to stress out next year.
- I can get a lot of bang for my buck out of gift cards I may have received, especially if they’re for something I really needed.
- It’s never to early to start shopping for next year. If I get started now, our budget may not be as tight next December.
