Some people live for Black Friday and the thrill of sale finding. I, on the other hand, live for the day after Christmas shopping. I buy all of my Christmas supplies, such as wrapping paper, ribbons, bows, tags, bags, etc. At 50% off, it can’t be beat. Some stores even go 75% off.
I also use this day to stock up on the prepackaged gifts such as perfume sets, coffee/tea sets, etc. I take the sets apart and begin to organize my gift giving for next year. So, in my opinion, the day after Christmas is a better shopping day. My fear this year, however, is my budget.
Yes, for the first time in a long time, I am saying the word budget. I don’t like it, but in order to get my debt under control, the word has become a part of my vocabulary. So, yes, I still plan to arise early tomorrow morning and head out for some after Christmas specials. But this time, I have a limit. In the past, I would just fill my cart no matter the cost, for I just put everything on a credit card. This year is different; I am planning to use cash, only as much as I can afford.
So, I am hoping for the best; I will keep everyone posted. Happy Holidays.
