Hit the post-holiday sales like a pro. Cha-Ching!
The tree is untrimmed, you’ve said “see ya” to your crazy cousins and—woo hoo!—you’v some holiday cash burning a hole in your pocket. You’re ready to rack it up at the registers...but before you begin browsing, try these tricks to navigate your way through the mall madness.
GET A GAME PLAN.
Stepping into a mall post holidays can be completely chaotic. So instead of ambling around aimlessly, walk in with purpose and a plan.
First, set a time limit. If you tell yourself you’ve got to jet by 7, you won’t stall over sales racks of stuff you don’t really need. Next, choose wisely what time you hit the shops. If you’re not crazy about crowds, go on the typically slower weekday nights or early weekend mornings.
Another tip? Get a sneak peek at what’s hitting the floor the next day by shopping late at night. If you’re lucky, you may be able to find a salesperson who will hold your selections that night and charge your card in the a.m. Finally, wear the right stuff: Comfy shoes and light layers are key for all that walking around, so leave the high heels at home.
