Myself, if I am working, which I often am, then that’s what I do! Otherwise, even if I have the day off, I avoid the stores if I can.
I mostly shop online these days in any case, unless there is something I urgently need, or unless I want to get a ‘hands on’ look at a product first.
I’ll be the first to admit, I have no loyalty to any particular store, online outlet or brand. If I’m buying a bigger ticket item, I’ll take my time to carefully review the item I am after from a number of sources.
Right now, there isn’t anything I desperatly need, and I’m not one for spending money for the skae of it, even if I have it to spare. It’s not a bargain then, is it?
Today too, has seen a tragedy, that quite frankly didn’t surprise me, when a Long Island Wal-Mart worker was apparently trampled to death by hoardes of bargain hunters when he opened the doors of the store where he was working at 5.03 am this morning.
