One year, I kid you not, my friend and I decided it was a good idea to go shopping on the eve of Christmas Eve. Let me tell you, it was one of the worst decisions I’ve made in my life (next to the one I decided to go Black Friday Shopping at Lenox- never again). Today, I took the liberty to not repeat history. My cousin and I took around town and looked at a couple of stores, and it was nice. Going shopping on a week day is great. Not only are you going on a day when there’s school, but it’s a day when a decent amount of people are getting there Christmas shopping done. Hopefully by the end of this year or next year there will be more sales. Keep in mind, that the Federal Reserve recently raised interest rates. If interest rates goes up, all sorts of expenses will follow.
