I don't like peopling...and esp not at this time...too many people. I did get my kid a Beats Pill for xmas, but I sent my people to go buy it. I'm not putting myself in that. I did however, braved IKEA and bought the kid bedroom furnature of her choice (birthday gift). I've also already ordered xmas gifts online for the kid. I have half of them delivered already and the rest should arrive by next week. I'm done with that. Im not putting myself in busy xmas hubbub.

I need Purdy's chocolates for a stocking stuffer, I'll brave the mall in a few weeks to grab some.


Your best chance to brave the mall, is after Black Friday weekend, like Monday - Thursday. Most folks that havent spent their money on Black Friday, will be at home spending on Monday for Cyber Monday. After that, folks are tapped, and there wont be many folks at the mall til Friday again. After that, you're fucked. The malls will get busier and busier up until Christmas. Its only 3 1/2 weeks til Christmas!

The big discounts here Boxing Week sales after Christmas. They often extend to the end of the first week of January.

To me, that makes more sense in a way, gives folks a chance to use their gift cards lol. Because lets be honest, most folks shop for themselves on Black Friday lol.

When I was in high school, stores wouldn't allow gift cards to be used for Boxing Day sales..

The provincial government made that practice illegal about twenty five years ago.

I remember boxing day sales back then...I wouldn't even call them sales...it was all false advertising. They'd paper up the store windows so you can't see in and then stand in line forever...only to get into the store and find out only one or a not many items were actually on sale. It was a waste of time.

If I really, really want something, I will save for it and just purchase it, no sale needed. Black Friday, boxing day, etc is just a way to get people to buy. Its not worth it. Just balance your money thru the year and pay attention to your finances, don't make stupid decisions...it's as simple as that.

A coworker worked at The Bay back in the early 90's to mid 90's. The downtown location. They would jack up the prices weeks before Boxing Day. Back then people didn't have the internet to research and compare prices.

That would not have worked for big ticket items like tv's or furniture.

The Bay is a little too expensive.
