who looks at all these deals the stores are running and wished I had the money to go shopping?
If I was really smart, I would have all my Christmas gifts bought by the end of October every year, and use November and December to snag some great deals for myself and our family. I see great deals on kitchen appliances (that I need to replace), household linens like towels and bedding (that I have been looking to replace), and everything else from good deals on batteries to movies. But of course, who has the money this time of year to do anything but pay for Christmas gifts and travel?
Maybe I'll be better about buying ahead next year, and be able to take advantage of some of this.
